Brandon Stephenson,, Chief Strategic Officer

As one of the nation’s most respected and successful public affairs and public relations firms, Cerrell combines the power of our legacy with an elite team of forward-thinking communicators to develop winning strategies for a diverse range of clients.

Since our founding in 1966, Cerrell has consistently developed the type of multifaceted, multilingual strategic programs that are needed in today’s complex and rapidly-changing public policy environment.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, Cerrell continues to evolve and expand.
Under the firm’s three-person ownership team of Chairman & CEO Hal Dash, President Lisa Gritzner and CFO Steve Bullock, Cerrell’s strength is illustrated by our 20% revenue growth for two consecutive years.

To enhance the firm’s capabilities and ensure sustained success, Cerrell has developed the next generation of leaders shaping the firm’s future.

Brandon Stephenson was recently promoted to the newly-created position of Chief Strategic Officer to work with Cerrell’s ownership team to determine the firm’s future vision and manage our various practice areas.

Senior Public Affairs Director Chris Gilbride was hired to co-manage Cerrell’s Media Relations & Crisis Communication practice area. Prior to joining Cerrell, Chris spent more than a decade managing communications for several departments in the City of New York under Mayors Michael R. Bloomberg and Bill de Blasio.

Public Affairs Director Katherine Hennigan, a long-time Los Angeles City Hall planning and land use veteran, was hired to bring a keen understanding of the local entitlement process and political landscape to our developer clients. She will join the Land Use practice area led by development attorney Nicole Kuklok-Waldman, who also recently joined Cerrell after working at several prestigious Los Angeles-based law firms.

What makes Cerrell truly unique among our competitors is that we have specialists in all of our core practice areas. Our Media Relations & Crisis Communication team understands what it takes to cut through the clutter and communicate our clients’ stories strategically. Cerrell’s Energy & Environment practice area provides strategic counsel and outreach services to manage California’s challenging public policy and regulatory environment.  Our Local Government practice helps our clients successfully navigate local and state government, engage decision-makers and, ultimately, achieve their desired results. Cerrell’s skilled Campaigns & Issues Management team manages every aspect of a political or issue-based campaign in a strategic manner to attain our clients’ goals – whether it’s achieving success on Election Day or winning a vote before a governing body. Cerrell’s Land Use practice experts effectively manage the complex, and often political, entitlement process to build support for the approval of our clients’ projects.

Twenty seven elite professionals and a strong support staff bring diverse experience to our clients under one roof. With Cerrell’s comprehensive slate of services and expert staff, we continue to provide our clients with unmatched public affairs and public relations expertise.

Beyond Cerrell’s own capabilities, our firm is also a longtime member of the Worldcom Public Relations Group, the largest network of independent public relations firms in the world. Through Worldcom’s global network, Cerrell has helped clients deploy both local and global strategies that have succeeded in some of the most challenging circumstances around the world.

Experience distinguishes PCI as a go-to agency on green issues. We serve a diversity of environmental clients, from advocacy organizations and professional associations, to nationally ranked zoos and aquariums, conservation groups and regulatory agencies. It is an agency priority to use sustainable business practices daily at PCI because we share the belief with our environmentally conscious clients that it’s important to live sustainably.

Several PCI senior counselors have significant experience working in and for environmental organizations. This first-hand experience brings extraordinary insight and benefits to our clients — from PCI’s creative strategies to knowing what words resonate and prompt public engagement on green issues.

For most of our 53 years, PCI has represented clients in the conservation and environmental fields.  Today a growing segment of our business consists of clients who seek national and regional counsel on issues, including land use, water quality, wildlife conservation, marine life protection and living sustainably.

We create and launch campaigns, operate consumer awareness programs, celebrate announcements and milestones, manage social media campaigns and create content and strategies that inform, excite and connect publics with our clients’ messages. This includes handling crises, coaching spokespersons and providing an outside-in perspective that is difficult for people within an organization to muster.

More than 75% of PCI’s new business is generated through word of mouth, including referrals and personal recommendations from our clients. This is particularly true within our conservation and environment practice because PCI has established a reputation of understanding our clients’ needs and delivering results.

Once clients begin working with PCI, they stay. Nearly half of our clients in the conservation and environmental fields have been with us 10 years or more and our clients benefit.
