We are widely recognized as a team of professionals exceptionally skilled in the disciplines our clients require. We are recognized with our industry’s highest honors for work ranging from global campaigns, thought leadership and media relations, to policy communication, crisis planning and mitigation, large-scale special events and digital engagement.


Stanton was founded in Washington, DC in 1989 on the premise that clients expect and deserve the attention, counsel and creativity of professionals who are among the best in this field. These include former journalists and practitioners who have worked in top-tier media organizations, corporations, agencies, NGOs and government. 


Since the firm’s founding, we have created and conducted impactful campaigns for clients wherever they are located. We also expanded our ownership to ensure the long-term engagement of a diverse team of senior professionals. These dedicated and talented leaders provide clients and staff assurance of the long-term stability of our business, as well as continuity in client teams. They uphold our long-standing commitment to the high standards of excellence on which our firm was established. Our culture, ethical practices and deliberate focus on client priorities over external shareholder return differentiates us from the plethora of firms whose foremost objective is meeting forecasts delivered to external shareholders and boards
