About Gavin Carter and Associates

We help companies and organizations communicate to different audiences - customers, legislators, regulators, journalists and the general public - in a way that enhances their reputation, marketability and bottom line.

Since most companies and organizations need to address more than one audience at a time, we are skilled at providing strategic communications, media relations, government affairs and marketing services.

And because the world really is a global marketplace, our international outlook and perspective means we can add particular value to clients from outside the United States, those serving international markets or those managing international issues.

Strategic communication is essential for effective reputation management.

We work with clients to protect their corporate reputation and establish a positive public profile. We provide strategic analysis, research, recommendations and physical support to minimize the impact of negative campaigns organized by interest groups. And, in case of emergency, we provide crisis communications services.

Marketing is the bottom line for all communications. Businesses are more successful if they have a strong reputation. They secure more federal contracts if they understand how the government operates. They are more productive if their employees feel part of a well-run enterprise.

In short, businesses that communicate effectively are more profitable. And non-governmental organizations have greater influence if their missions are well respected. We promote businesses through media placements - generating positive coverage that highlights successes, innovations and philosophies.

We promote businesses by identifying and accessing federal markets. We back up our strategies with the production of promotional and publicity material that enhances marketability, reinforces brand awareness and improves understanding of products and operations.
