About McGrath/Power Public Relations and Communications Agency

ABOUT

As a public relations and communications agency, we have a profoundly diverse history of crafting communications with conviction for consumer brands, B2B technology companies and many organizations in-between. Our commitment to deeply-rooted principles, strength in providing intellectual counsel and guts enables us to tackle all kinds of challenges and use communications to help our clients achieve great outcomes.

Our unique ability to adapt to the diverse needs of a broad spectrum of client challenges is just one of the reasons companies of all shapes and sizes come to us for help. Here are just a few things that make us different:

WE DON’T DO BAIT AND SWITCH

We promise and deliver senior-level management on every account to bring strategic perspective that will drive your program forward.

WE LOVE BUSINESS GOALS

Communications for communications’ sake? We don’t subscribe to that. We design programs that produce results tied to specific business objectives. When you work with us, everything is aligned.

WE KISSED SILOS GOODBYE

We break down marketing, sales and public relations silos so that cohesive, integrated communications can be achieved.

WE COME FROM MEDIA

Thus, we know media. It’s why we understand the very people we pitch and what it takes to shape an idea into a story. When it comes to media coverage, seek and ye shall find with us.

WE GET YOU

You can take our team out of in-house, but you can’t take in-house out of our team. We have a foot in both worlds and we understand your challenges because they were once our own.

WE’RE PUSHY

But only in the best possible way. We push the creative envelope and we aren’t afraid to speak up for what we believe is in your brand’s best interest.

The power of partnership has always been a force to be reckoned with at McGrath/Power. Beginning in 1973, Lee McGrath and Larry Power founded the communication agency with a focus on consumer client programs. In 1983, they tapped Jonathan Bloom and Terri Foos Cook to open our Silicon Valley office, home to tech innovation. McGrath and Power retired in 1990 and we took up permanent residence in the Valley. We welcomed Bloom as partner in 2000. A lot has changed since ‘73, but not our unmatched depth of experience, which affords us unique perspective to take on new communications challenges.
