Powell Tate is a strategic communications firm based in Washington, D.C.

While our roots are in public affairs, we have grown into a full-service agency. We specialize in advocacy campaigns, corporate social responsibility, crisis and issues management, influencer engagement, federal marketing, federal government campaigns and foundations and nonprofits. We have one of Washington’s most respected creative and digital teams and serve as a leading content-development hub within the Weber Shandwick network. 


Powell Tate was founded 20 years ago by two former White House press secretaries – Democrat Jody Powell and Republican Sheila Tate. Today, we retain our bipartisan roots. Our staff comes from the highest levels of government and politics, but also from corporations, advocacy organizations and the media. We offer deeply experienced media trainers who routinely prepare senior officials for congressional testimony, Capitol Hill visits and media interviews.


As the Washington office of Weber Shandwick, one of the largest public relations firms in the world, Powell Tate offers the scale and reach of a global network of communications professionals. We also offer clients high-quality research and advocacy advertising through our in-house units, KRC Research and Sawyer Miller Advertising.
