Firehouse Strategies named 2019 Agency of the Year Finalist by Holmes Report
The Holmes Report has selected Firehouse Strategies as a finalist for the 2019 North America Boutique PR Agencies of the Year:
After managing US Sen. Marco Rubio’s 2016 presidential campaign (and, as they say, losing to a reality TV star in the late stages of the primary process) three longtime GOP operatives — Terry Sullivan, Alex Conant and Will Holley — gave up the campaign trail to start Washington public affairs shop Firehouse Strategies. Their strategy: take lessons learned from that wild election cycle — the one in which Donald Trump upended modern communications —and use them to help clients communicate in the modern age.
Less than three years into it, Sullivan, a political strategist, and Conant, who ran the Rubio campaign’s communications, are doing just that: running PR and public affairs campaigns just like they did political ones.
