Powell Tate - Firm Overview

Firm Overview

When it comes to dealing with the media, communicating with audiences who influence public policy, solving problems and amplifying a message, there's no substitute for real-world experience.

Based in Washington, D.C., our staff has worked at the highest levels of government and politics, from the White House to Capitol Hill, political campaigns, advocacy organizations, corporations, media, law firms, state houses and regulatory agencies. We bring not only broad experience, but political diversity to our work.

Powell Tate was created over 20 years ago by two prominent former White House press secretaries -- Democrat Jody Powell and Republican Sheila Tate -- who believed that the best public policy and the most effective counsel requires left- and right-brain thinking. We still feel that way and, today, Powell Tate is one of the most respected agencies in Washington.

A division of Weber Shandwick, Powell Tate is a global network of partners who create and execute communications campaigns of all shapes and sizes for clients ranging from industry giants to local businesses. We have teams available in cities across the country and around the world. You can even visit Powell Tate offices in Beijing!

In addition, we offer clients access to the highest-quality research and advocacy advertising through our in-house units, KRC Research and SawMill.
