ORLANDO, Fla., (SEPTEMBER 14, 2015):  Align Public Strategies, a full service public affairs and creative firm that helps corporate brands, governments and nonprofits navigate the outside world and inform their internal decision-making, launched today.

Headquartered in Orlando, Align Public Strategies handles national issues and multi-state strategy for a portfolio of flagship clients including; the country’s largest employers, Fortune 100 brands and national associations.

“Our firm name speaks directly to what we do,” said Align Managing Partner Joe Kefauver.  “As a unique kind of counselor to the business, we specialize in taking companies’ external-facing platforms and synchronizing or ‘aligning’ them in a way that turns reputation management from a challenge into a competitive advantage.  We help clients understand what’s important, why it’s important and what’s likely to happen next on the issues that matter most to them.”

“This platform gives us the ability to help clients not only protect their company’s image, but also grow their brand through the use of creative public relations and social media campaigns that drive buzz and raise awareness,” said Align Partner and Public Relations Director Mike Harris.
