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.
