Sharing over a century of combined experience, we are political professionals who represent a wide spectrum of clients before the United States government. The principals of the firm reflect a wealth of experience including: appointments by the President of the United States to administrative agencies, serving as members of Congressional staffs, managing political campaigns, organizing fundraising programs and events, working as adjunct professors, developing media relations programs and running small businesses. This diversity of experience brings the added value of varying levels of understanding and points of view on virtually all public policy issues.
No two issues are ever the same. That said, established procedures and methods that have proven effective over decades of successful government relations campaigns continue to constitute the basis of PACE’s approach to address each new challenge as it arises.
Progress and success demand constant reinvention but never at the expense of discarding successful protocols. PACE believes deeply that teamwork is fundamental in any government affairs program. Together with our clients, we develop a proactive program that is uniquely created to enhance opportunities for each of them. Constant communication with our clients and to each other ensures that everyone knows what is happening today – and what will most likely happen tomorrow. Every member of our firm is aware of the issues of importance to each client and is empowered to act in the best interests of that client. We are teammates with our clients, not a replacement for them.
At PACE, “access” is a two-fold ideology.
Due to the vast combined experience within the firm, the partners of PACE have established personal and professional relationships with White House personnel, federal agency officials, chairmen of major congressional committees, Senate and House Leadership, hundreds of Members of Congress, corporate sector executives and members of the working press. The partners call upon these relationships ensure that our clients receive the visibility and information necessary to execute a truly successful government relations program.
Additionally, the clients must have access to the principals of the firm, in addition to all other employees. A key element to our continued success is the exchange that happens between PACE principals and clients. It is not just lip service to declare that the client-centered approach taken by PACE means that our clients work directly with and have continual access to the firm’s partners.
