What We Do

Abernathy MacGregor is a strategic communications firm specializing in advising CEOs, board directors and senior executives on effective stakeholder communications, engagement and advocacy initiatives in today’s highly complex, dynamic and interconnected world. The firm has a proven 35-year history helping clients build and preserve value, seize opportunities and solve problems.

Companies today face multifaceted and rapidly evolving challenges as business, political and social issues converge. Effective communications have never been more important to producing results. At Abernathy MacGregor, we help corporate leaders bridge stakeholder concerns from Wall Street to Main Street to Washington and beyond. We believe highly customized and holistic communications strategies build and protect value, advance stakeholder relations and achieve real results. We are problem solvers at our core, and carefully evaluate which communications and engagement tools to draw upon to deliver results.

While our clients’ needs vary greatly – for example, a gap between perceptions of management and investors, an unexpected event or crisis, a potential transaction or how to navigate an increasingly complicated environment in Washington, D.C. – the principles of our approach are consistent:

  • We tie communications to achieving business objectives
  • We candidly identify the issues we see, and focus clients on what matters most in solving them
  • We believe in the need for direct communication to key constituencies through the most influential channels using a variety of tactics, from individual engagement to social media campaigns and everything in between
  • We do not provide off-the-shelf strategies. We believe in providing holistic communications solutions by bringing together bespoke strategies with superior execution that leverages the full suite of our communications disciplines

Our firm is structured to provide strategic and logistical support around the clock and around the globe. Our deep relationships, experience, expertise and client base extend across a wide range of sectors, including aerospace and defense, consumer, energy, financial services (including banking, insurance, hedge funds, mutual funds and private equity), food and beverage, healthcare and life sciences, industrials, media, natural resources, real estate, technology, travel and hospitality, and utilities.
