We work with owner-led PR and communications agencies. As a serial entrepreneur, Chip Griffin particularly enjoys working with founders of these businesses. A veteran of several business partnerships, Chip is very comfortable working with one owner or multiple partners. The only requirement is that all owners participate in the engagement with Agency Leadership Advisors.
Perhaps the most important requirement is that the agency owner is looking for change. There are advisors who can help you manage the status quo, but Chip gets the best results when he is working with agencies that want to adapt and drive double-digit growth.
As the lines between the various communications disciplines continue to blur, agencies no longer fit into neat little silos. Chip works best with public relations or integrated communications agencies, especially those that offer services like:
- Strategic communications
- Media relations
- Public affairs
- Media monitoring & analysis
- Crisis communications
- Digital & content marketing
- Reputation management
Conversely, if you are primarily engaged in advertising, media buying, or creative services, we may not be the best fit. Chip would be happy to suggest other agency consultants who could help.
We can help you get ready to exit your agency by selling, merging, or completing another transaction, but Chip is not a business broker or M&A transaction specialist. He does work with experts in this area and can help you get the most out of their services when the time is right.
Chip works with agencies of all sizes (as long as they are owner-led), but the sweet spot is between 5 and 50 employees.
Chip has experience with international agencies, and is comfortable with the challenges involved in working across borders and time zones. He has worked with clients in just about every corner of the globe.
