CLINTON, Wash., Aug. 30, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Strategic Management & Opportunity Corporation (Pink Sheets:SMPP) announces today it has secured a one year agreement with a complete list of services from Gerrard Hollister Investor Relations ( www.gerrardhollister.com/ ) to allow for comprehensive communication and interaction with Strategic's existing and prospective shareholders.

"This is a crucial period for Strategic and its VSP platform," notes SMPP CEO Julienne Audette. "With all of the details required by programming and final touches for deployment, much of our progress, at present, is internal. We get many emails and calls regarding various aspects of the VSP product suite. Signing on Gerrard Hollister Investor Relations will allow us to focus on the task at hand without sparing information or communication flow with investors all the while. Product launch is nearing and it's crucial that we show our appreciation for phase 1 investors by fostering accessibility through to a 'sexier' level of development. This will include branding, marketing and deployment toward customer contracts and feature add-ons."

Gerrard Hollister services for SMPP include email and telephone correspondence, updates to OTCMarkets, monitoring investor boards online and orchestrating CEO Interviews featuring Q&As for shareholders by shareholders. These interviews are to take place for Strategic on a monthly basis. As well, Gerrard Hollister will post regular company updates for Strategic MMP and other clients via its Twitter posts at www.Twitter.com/GerrardHIR.

"Q&A is one of the more attractive features, especially for a company like ours, currently trading in the sub-penny range. It is here that everything is heightened in contrast with, say, blue-chip markets," states Audette. "This is the breeding ground for start-ups and innovation and amidst what may otherwise be looked at as fast-paced, high-stakes speculation; we feel it's imperative to ensure there's a direct line to communication and information on which people can rely to help make the best decisions in a timely manner."

Gerard Hollister Investor Relations is a boutique web-based firm with access to thousands of media contacts nationwide and live customer service attendants required to perform due diligence and in-depth CEO client overviews before taking on company correspondence. The firm will work hand in hand with Audette and SMPP Execs, keeping up-to-date with client status reports and overall progress while ensuring that shareholders have an outlet for which to discuss concerns, field questions, voice constructive opinions or otherwise.

Gerrard Hollister Investor Relations is thrilled to working with SMPP in that, as its founder states, "it creates a new channel for the company to communicate to shareholders in a way that would not be possible without the time and energy needed to communicate to each and every shareholder. Once this channel is created, bridging the gap between private and public information can be a quick and easy transition. Further, Strategic and its technology is innovative and timely and it's always a pleasure to take on clients with the passion, vision and capability that comes with working with Ms. Audette and their flagship platform."
