About Us

Clark Communications is an award-winning communications company founded in 1992 in the Washington, DC area with a clientele that ranges from non-profits and trade association --such as Michigan State University and the American Nuclear Society -- to Fortune 500 companies such as General Motors, and the Staples Foundation. We are a full service public relations agency specializing in strategic communications programs that solve problems for our clients in the food and nutrition industry, energy industries, investment community and the environmental/green arena. Our firm caters to clients who want the best-in-class PR services but want them at a reasonable rate.

 

Our Washington, DC location gives us ready access to one of the world's largest media markets, but we also work with clients nationwide to help them generate coverage in outlets critical to their needs, be it local, trade or national. We specialize in creating compelling media coverage in the nation's largest media outlets, producing for our clients millions of dollars of free media coverage annually.

Our Services

We typically begin by developing a comprehensive strategic communications plan, but we can help with other smaller projects as well. We understand and specialize in shaping client messages for media outlets so that reporters and the target audience understand and are motivated to act positively on our client's behalf. We create strategies, message content, communications tools, media kits and customized training programs to address targeted issues or support specific campaigns. And unlike staffing at PR mega-firms, a Clark Communications principal will always work directly on your account.

A Message from the Founder

At Clark Communications we are passionate about our clients and we think the results speak for themselves. We can make things happen against seemingly insurmountable odds and clients are amazed at the results we deliver. Whether it's a media campaign that introduces a new product, the development of new marketing materials to help sell product or services, or even the development of a crisis plan that helps avoid disasters, you can count on Clark Communications.

 

Our track record of generating network and local coverage for our clients from coast-to-coast on all national electronic as well as every national periodical and daily newspapers in the top 100 US media markets is unmatched by any size firm. In fact, our programs are so successful that frequently clients will initially contract with Clark Communications for a single project but eventually outsource all of their communications requirements to us. Our clients understand that thanks to our relentless efforts on their behalf, they benefit from mass media coverage that would ordinarily cost millions of dollars to purchase for the same level of audience reach.

 

I encourage you to let Clark Communications assist you in your next campaign. As our references will attest, you will be very satisfied with your decision.
