Who We Are

At Your Service

Creative.  Results-driven. Motivated.  Inquisitive.  Risk-taking. Innovative.  Spirited. Ethical.  Fun.   These attributes aren’t things easily discernable from a resume.  They are, however, the core characteristics Stratacomm looks for when someone wants to join us.  

Those making the cut are a balance of seasoned professionals and rising stars. They are experts in transportation, energy and environment, infrastructure, defense and security, education, and healthcare, to name but a few areas.  They are digital experts, policy wonks, powerful writers, special events mavens, and media junkies.  This rich and varied blend of people and expertise allows us to build customized account groups that are tailored specifically for each client’s particular needs.  Our people embrace a challenge and dig in to help our clients win. We create a dynamic culture that brings out the collective’s very best work.

We value the individual and cultivate the team. Together, we work hard, have fun, and understand that our reputation is built (and maintained) by two things: unmatched client service and winning results.

Sharon Hegarty

Managing Director & Senior Vice President, Partner

  • Managing Director of Stratacomm’s Detroit office  
  • Oversees communication strategy and direction for clients office-wide
  • Has specific expertise in creative and message development, and crisis counsel

Sharon joined Stratacomm in 2004. As Managing Director of the Detroit office, she oversees a cross section of office teams and accounts, providing senior strategy and counsel for all clients. She is also a partner and member of the company’s executive leadership team.

Since joining Stratacomm, Sharon has been fortunate to work with a diverse group of clients including the University of Michigan, General Motors, Chrysler, Altarum Institute, an aftermarket supplier and a hazardous waste company among others.  

Sharon is a consummate communicator – whether it’s helping clients craft a story or message, or volunteering to manage communications for her kid’s soccer team – she focuses on the three Cs: clear, concise and compelling communications. As head of the Detroit office, she has a hand in nearly every account, working closely with her team to instill the Cs in projects ranging from a simple press release to a complex product recall or integrated marketing program.

Sharon spends most of her free time with husband and daughters  – from cheering her girls on at the soccer field or dance competitions, to family skiing and snowboarding, or just hanging out “Up North.” She is a proud graduate of the University of Michigan –Ann Arbor.
