About Us

MacKenzie is an independent marketing communications firm with a distinguished track record and great clients that has taken us well beyond our hometown of San Francisco. Since 1983, our senior team of marketing innovators, communications strategists and creative pros have crossed boundaries, sectors, and specialties to design and deliver high-quality integrated marketing, communications and creative services to a large and diverse portfolio of companies and nonprofit organizations.

We’re forward-thinking, highly effective, and a really nice group of professionals with expertise, influence and impact few boutique agencies can match.

Our Approach

Who? What? When? Where? How? Why?

With minute-by-minute connectivity, 24-hour news cycles, and shifting competitive landscapes, we believe answering and aligning the “Five Ws” is more critical than ever to successfully crafting and telling your unique business story.

When we begin working together, MacKenzie digs deep to discover and define your distinct who, what, where, when and why. We meet your team. We ask a lot of questions. We identify your key stakeholders, and what motivates them. We agree on your messages and who carries them. We answer Why It Matters. We share your marketing goals, and sometimes help you stretch them.

Following MacKenzie’s propriety intake process, our team customizes a marketing strategy and tactical game plan that ensures you are effectively communicating with your key audiences, at the right time, and leveraging the optimum selection of print, online, broadcast, and social media tools.
