Wilund Strategic is a relationship-centered public affairs shop operating on the west coast. It is the culmination of over 25 years of deep community engagement and public affairs experience across the public, private, and non-governmental organization (NGO) sectors.
We are hands-on, specializing in helping organizations overcome challenges, offering traditional boots-on-the-ground outreach, PR & media outreach, social media management, reputation building, government affairs, and special event PR & production. No job is too small and we are nimble enough to support a wide range of organizations.
Special areas of interest include targeted outreach campaigns, community concerns, environmental issues/projects, brownfield remediation, natural resources, and crisis response. Wilund Strategic has partnerships with several public affairs and digital design/content shops, enabling us to rapidly add capacity and expertise to any project.
