Washington, DC—The S-3 Group and Bryant Row Public Affairs announced today they are joining forces to create S-3 Public Affairs. The merging of talents of the two firms will allow them to provide a greater array of corporate and issue-based coalition and advocacy work. This new venture marks the future of public affairs strategy, with the best of both government and public affairs together on one team, providing a lean, efficient and creative approach to advocacy.
S-3 Public Affairs will provide:
- Coalition Management
- Digital Media Advocacy Campaigns
- Brand Development
- Crisis Communications
- Corporate Policy and Political Campaigns
“We worked with Amos Snead and his team at Bryant Row for the first time last year and found them to be a perfect fit for our culture of constantly delivering concrete results for our clients,” said Rob Collins. “They work hard, are creative and move the ball forward in really tough environments.”
“While we remain committed to our core business of government affairs, this new offering will allow us to provide more strategic counsel and global management of critical federal policy initiatives,” Rob Collins said.
“Impacting federal policy through corporate campaigns or multi-party coalitions requires creativity, passion, knowledge and determination,” said Amos Snead. “We now have an amazing team of professionals with a track record of delivering results in a big way.”
The S-3 Group is a full service government relations firm that helps clients navigate their way through complex legislative and regulatory challenges. The S-3 Group has expertise in a wide array of public policy arenas.
Bryant Row is a full service public affairs firm delivering strategies to shape public policy and build seamless digital movements, helping clients shape and share their message. Bryant Row has expertise in corporate and Capitol Hill communications, digital advertising campaigns and social media strategy.
FIRST IN PI … FIRST DOWN: S-3 Group – the boutique lobbying firm anchored by John Scofield, Mike Ference, Rob Collins and Martin Delgado – and Amos Snead‘s Bryant Row Public Affairs are merging to form S-3 Public Affairs. The principals already collaborated frequently, shared office space and were friends. (Snead and Ference both worked for Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) when he was House whip.) Now they’re hoping to build out their operation as a one-stop shop. S-3’s stable includes JPMorgan, Koch, the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, Google, Halliburton, Northrop Grumman and Boeing.
NOTE: One firm making the shift is the all-GOP lobby shop S-3 Group, which is rebranding as S-3 Public Affairs as it merges with Bryant Row.
The move comes with the addition of veteran communications pro Amos Snead and his boutique PR team. Stationed in a row house in Eastern Market, S-3 Public Affairs plans to integrate lobbying services with coalition management, digital advocacy campaigns, crisis communications and brand development.
