Powell Tate was created over 20 years ago by two prominent former White House press secretaries -- Democrat Jody Powell and Republican Sheila Tate -- who believed that the best public policy and the most effective counsel requires left- and right-brain thinking. We still feel that way and, today, Powell Tate is one of the most respected agencies in Washington.
When it comes to dealing with the media, communicating with audiences who influence public policy, solving problems and amplifying a message, there's no substitute for real-world experience.
Based in Washington, D.C., our staff has worked at the highest levels of government and politics, from the White House to Capitol Hill, political campaigns, advocacy organizations, corporations, media, law firms, state houses and regulatory agencies. We bring not only broad experience, but political diversity to our work.
