Makovsky, founded 38 years ago, has become one of the nation’s leading global independent integrated communications consultancies by adhering to its original vision: that specialization in key areas is the best way to build reputation, sales and fair valuation for the client. Our competitive edge is reflected in our brand energy line: “The Power of Specialized Thinking.”

To further drive client satisfaction, the heads of each of the company’s specialty practices are active in day-to-day client service. The firm’s “One P&L” philosophy enables the firm to deploy the right talent at the right time to further the clients’ business goals.
