Agency Statement: Public Communications Inc. provides strategic counsel to clients, whether we're dealing with the most serious and complex issue, a national awareness campaign or the splashiest of events - and we've been doing so for more than 50 years.
Our job is to safeguard reputations and recommend the right way for clients to communicate what they have to say so it is heard and influences their audiences. We are an integrated communications firm, large enough to provide all the communications services a client might require but small enough that the firm's officers are directly involved, hands-on, in each client's program.
PCI is a founding partner of the WORLDCOM Public Relations Group, the world's leading partnership of independently owned public relations counseling firms with more offices in more cities and countries than any multinational firm.
We have a strong concentration of business in healthcare, conservation/environment, education, entertainment/culture/sports and a special category we call “everything Chicago,” a diverse group of clients from tech to nonprofits, entrepreneurs to advocacy groups that want to make their presence known in the metropolitan area and region.
Our clients trust us and stay with us; our business has grown primarily through referrals and word of mouth. More than half of our clients have been with us 10 years or more; 15 and 20+ year relationships are common (and valued).
Our size and the depth of our staff enable us to manage the most sophisticated assignments while allowing us to move quickly, be flexible and change course when it makes sense.
