Who are we? Well, we call ourselves a marketing communications firm. We’ve also been referred to as an ad shop, a PR firm, a branding agency, or an outsourced marketing department. And sometimes we’re just counselors, helping clients think through how to respond and react to issues and trends. Regardless of where the descriptor falls, clients rely on us for our communications expertise.

At the core, we like to view ourselves as conversation starters. Because we know that every good relationship begins with a conversation.

For 30 years, MacKenzie has created and implemented marketing, communications and outreach programs that enable our clients to start and drive compelling and meaningful conversations with those who matter most to their success — customers, employees, influencers, community leaders, the media.

We are deeply connected to a wide influencer network throughout California and the nation. The “MacKenzie Network” is a key asset and differentiator for the firm, and one that our clients frequently call upon to open doors, start conversations with potential partners or to establish a presence in the thriving, vibrant Bay Area market and beyond.

Launching a new product or initiative? Looking to expand or strengthen your brand or raise public awareness?  Need to motivate or educate your employees?  All of our efforts are customized so our clients can start those conversations with their stakeholders and tell them their stories.

Pick up the phone or send us an email to start a conversation on how we can help you define and meet your communications goals. We’re good listeners.

We’re a team of highly accomplished communicators, marketers, writers and editors, creative directors and event managers. Together we have helped all kinds of organizations start and maintain conversations with their audiences.
