PRINCETON PUBLIC AFFAIRS GROUP

It is what we call strength and results. As New Jersey Public Affairs Firms go, PPAG—Princeton Public Affairs Group is home to one of America’s most respected state-based government affairs and lobbying teams, and continues to be New Jersey’s best in class. It’s because we deliver for the people we serve.

With a diverse, bi-partisan collection of professionals that includes former elected officeholders and professionals hailing from wide range of senior leadership roles in the public and private sectors, our organization offers a seasoned roster of advisors and strategists. That’s how we have earned our clients’ trust.

We begin every engagement by asking what “success” looks like for our clients. Identifying our clients’ needs and goals in the context of their environment, we draw upon our team’s collective experience and the full range of proven strategies and tactics to deliver success.

Through a winning circle of companies: Princeton Public Affairs Group (PPAG), Winning Strategies Washington (WSW), and Princeton Strategic Communications (PSC), we offer a full-service approach to public affairs and communications. Together we share a bipartisan team-based approach, a high ethical “playing by the rules” standard, and a solid commitment to helping our clients succeed.

PPAG delivers and draws upon years of experience in governmental service, policy development, business, and political advocacy. Clients are matched with a team based on appropriate areas of expertise that include education, health care, gaming, transportation, public safety, banking, insurance, energy, environment, land-use development, corporate communications, labor and employment, hospitality, and entertainment.

The team-based approach also applies as clients move from the state to federal level—or the other way around. WSW assists clients with federal policy, funding and grants as it assesses the landscape, forges partnerships and provides legislative tracking and analysis. Clients are given their own “Day on the Hill” to educate policymakers concerning their issues. Rather than offering generic, off-the-shelf solutions to complex problems, WSW educates clients and helps them make well-informed decisions.

PSC completes the team with public affairs professionals skilled at providing the full suite of marketing communications, including branding and design, earned or controlled media, and interactive and social media, as well as event management.

At all levels of government and through all segments of society, the PPAG circle of companies combine to serve clients as needed. Together, we are establishing a growing record of success that has kept us ranked #1. And like any successful team, we assess the field so we can place the right players on it, and passionately play by the rules with winning strategies in pursuit of a singular goal:

Client Success.
