Agency Statement:

Marathon Strategies is a full-service public affairs, communications, and research firm with core practice areas including national, local, and international public affairs; reputation and issues management; research and investigations; digital advocacy; and creative campaigns.

Our mission is to deliver influence at speed with intelligence. We shape conversations important to our clients by using thoughtful, data-driven insights to persuade target audiences and we act quickly when hours can be make or break for a company or an issue. We listen. We ask challenging but thoughtful questions. We’re not afraid to offer honest, candid counsel and big ideas even if they are outside a client’s comfort zone or may not be the popular opinion. We partner with our clients to do great work and change the status quo to achieve their desired outcomes rather than opting for the safest option.
