About Us

The Breakthrough Agency

Sachs Media is the go-to strategic communications partner for mid-sized to large corporate, non-profit, and government organizations with high-stakes challenges.

Based in Florida with national reach, we've perfected the art and science of promoting issues, brands, and services. We believe in insight-informed strategy — doing the right things to reach the right audiences and achieve the right outcomes, and measuring success the way our clients do.

With offices in Tallahassee, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Washington, D.C., and global reach powered by our affiliations with the prestigious PR Council and the Worldcom Public Relations Group, we’re the right team to help you break through to success.


Sachs Media was founded in 1996 by veteran Florida communicator Ron Sachs, following an award‐winning career as a newspaper, magazine, and television journalist. Sachs also served as senior communications counsel to two Florida Governors, Reubin Askew and Lawton Chiles. Three years later, in 1999, partner and president Michelle Ubben joined Sachs Media after stints as communications director for the Florida Senate and four state agencies. Together they have grown the agency into one of the top strategic communications firms in the U.S.

In 2017, Sachs named five additional partners to help lead and guide the future of the agency. The partners and senior leadership group bring extensive state government, corporate, association, and non-profit experience, and include award-winning strategists and creative producers.

Why the Rhino

The rhino is our mascot and our animal symbol. Like the rhino, we are hard-charging, driven to get results, and determined to break through barriers to success. In animal symbolism, the rhino’s message is “nothing is as it seems.” Mystics tell of the rhino horn’s spiritual power to rip through the ambiguous veil and find clarity and abundance on the other side. We seek to embody the best of these rhino characteristics in our work, tearing through ambiguity to tell our clients’ stories and reframe perceptions, providing sure-footed strategies, inspired ideas, and explosive implementation to produce breakthroughs.
