WE MANAGE BRANDS THAT inspire and impact LIVES AND COMMUNITIES. ATHENA COMMUNICATIONS is a full-service brand management firm headquartered in Milwaukee. We offer an array of public relations and communication services, but we’re not your typical PR firm.
What sets us apart? We only work with transformative clients. That is, clients that inspire us by their expertise, leadership, and skill – and the work to make an impact in the world.
As brand experts, we are uniquely positioned to develop a whole new approach to your brand identity and messaging. Whether an organization is a start-up or a Fortune 500 brand, we can help them achieve authenticity and success as a truly "transformative" brand.
We dedicate 100% of ourselves to each client, so we have to believe in the amazing work you’re doing in your field and the positive impact you’re having locally and globally. Second, we do not work on an a-la-carte basis. We work as true partners with our clients and provide specialized services and counsel to help our clients meet their objectives and priorities. Third, we focus on corporate and personal branding. Everyone has heard of branding, but very few know how to design and implement a successful branding strategy. Fourth, we meld tried-and-true communication tactics with our unique model of community engagement to achieve the best results for our clients. Finally, we have a stellar reputation for knowing how to get the job done right and for providing strategic and valuable counsel to our clients.
We are the team you have been looking for to help achieve your brand goals.
