In a pairing of two of Florida’s most engaged and effective strategists, legendary and iconic political pro J.M. “Mac” Stipanovich and pre-eminent public affairs communications firm Sachs Media Group have announced they will forge an alliance to focus on select special projects and public affairs.
Stipanovich, the oft-quoted, nationally renowned attorney and lobbyist with Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC (formerly Fowler White), is widely recognized as one of the most brilliant, influential and insightful strategists in both the political and government realms. He has been a key advisor to several Florida governors, including serving as chief of staff to former Governor Bob Martinez.
“I’ve admired ‘Mac’ for a long time and over the years we have enjoyed swapping great stories about being in the middle of some of the most pivotal political events in our state’s modern history – and we’ve enjoyed working together,” said Ron Sachs, president and CEO of Sachs Media Group. “Our unique blend of expertise and perspective presents new opportunities to develop better ways of shaping conversation about the issues that matter most to the people of Florida.”
“Ron and his diverse, talented team have proven – time and again – that they have all of the right skills to deliver the most effective public affairs communications operation in Florida. I’m excited to be providing and trading counsel for some key clients and special projects,” said Stipanovich, who has his own reputation for potent quotes.
In his role as a senior counselor, Stipanovich will consult on several of Sachs Media’s special public education initiatives and put the firm together with selected clients whose issues can most benefit from the messaging expertise of the firm’s public affairs team. Sachs Media in turn will be able to provide strategic communications counsel to some of Stipanovich’s clients to help them get their messages across in the halls of power and the court of public opinion.
Now in its 20th year, Sachs Media Group is nationally recognized as Florida’s dominant independent public relations firm and recently has expanded to become a leading integrated marketing communications firm with diverse advertising, branding, digital and market research services.
