Cave Henricks Communications is a full-service media relations and consulting firm for authors and thought leaders. Our team of seven specializes in book publicity and focuses on quality non-fiction work in the areas of business, current events, big think general interest, politics, parenting, personal growth, science, health, and technology.
Company CEO Barbara Henricks has over 30 years of experience publicizing influential and game-changing books and a nuanced understanding of best practices for breaking through the noise to capture media attention. She began her career as a journalist at NBC Radio in Washington D.C. before moving to book publishing, where at Workman Publishing and Houghton Mifflin she worked with Pulitzer Prize winners Tracy Kidder and Buzz Bissinger, Vice President Al Gore, and Apollo 13 astronaut Jim Lovell, among many others.
She founded Cave Henricks Communications in 2007, following a decade-long tenure at Goldberg McDuffie Communications, where she launched and led the firm’s business book division. Her first pick for that division—First, Break All the Rules, by Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman—became a New York Times bestseller. It also set the stage for a 12-year relationship with Gallup, which encompassed many bestsellers including the perennial list maker, StrengthsFinder 2.0, by Tom Rath.
The Cave Henricks team has collectively represented close to 100 bestsellers and has worked with some of the greatest minds of our time, representing founders, CEOs, chairmen, and top executives at Twitter, Netflix, Square, Whole Foods, Innosight, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Forrester, Gallup, PricewaterhouseCoopers, General Electric, Dollar General, Campbell Soup Company, Honeywell, Loews Hotels, McKinsey & Company, Keller Williams, Korn Ferry, The Nature Conservancy, UN Women, Young & Rubicam, Pritzker Group, Walmart.com, 1-800-Flowers, and Fidelity. We have worked with international bestselling authors Tom Rath, Marcus Buckingham, Ram Charan, Seth Godin, and Tony Schwartz; innovation and management thought leaders, including Clayton Christensen, C.K. Prahalad, Jack Bogle, Jack Welch, and Mark Johnson; university professors at Harvard, Yale, London Business School, NYU, Rutgers, Kellogg School of Management, and others; former SEC Commissioner Arthur Levitt; four-star general Stanley McChrystal; and media members, including Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo and Fortune’s Geoffrey Colvin.
We have also worked with some of the most respected organizations in the world, including Amazon, Arthur Anderson, Data & Society, Deloitte, Financial Times, Gallup, Goldman Sachs, IBM, Innosight, Kellogg School of Management, McKinsey & Company, and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
