Assessing client needs is an on-going process and can change even as a project is underway. At Gogerty Marriott, we maintain a flexible approach to every problem with an eye on one thing: a successful outcome. As an independent firm, we’ve found some clients require disciplines Gogerty Marriott does not provide internally, and we need to assemble an All Star team of staff and outside consultants to bring the best to bear on a problem.
We’ve worked with many of the best firms in the areas of creative media, online development and communication and quantitative or qualitative research. Our strong relationships have yielded great work, and the results for our clients show it.
In 2009, the Association of Political Consultants and Public Affairs Professionals awarded the team members the Pollie Award for the Best Public Affairs Campaign of the Year for work on The Pickens Plan.
Some of our partnerships include:
Joe Slade White
In dozens of major campaigns over nearly three decades, the Gogerty Marriott firm has turned to Joe Slade White to bring to life client stories, values and objectives. From the baseball and football stadium initiatives in Washington State to the current campaigns of AT&T and the Pickens Plan, JSW & Co. have been the media firm of choice for Gogerty Marriott.
Joe Slade White has won more "Pollies" than any other media consultant – a winner at the very first Pollie Awards Ceremony in 1982, JSW & Co. won 8 more in 2009 alone. This year’s award winning ads included work for long time client Vice President Joseph Biden, The Pickens Plan, and for the upset statewide initiative victory for Stem Cell Research in Michigan.

When the campaign strategy calls for an online presence, a viral video, social media, or a strong print campaign to reach a targeted audience, Gogerty Marriott works with Seattle’s Mercury Group.
With a client base varying from Fortune 50 companies, to non-profits, to political campaigns and labor unions, Mercury possesses the agile approach and diverse experience clients appreciate, and have built a long track record of success in battles at every level.
Listening is the cornerstone of the Gogerty Marriott strategic approach to message development. The research professionals who support our work have talked with thousands of people in conversations to find the intersection where public values cross client objectives. Our research partnerships span decades and have been a critical part of every significant campaign we have undertaken for our clients.

Jane Malbon of JKM Research has been conducting qualitative research for over twenty years. Her keen sense of public attitudes, opinions, motivations and behaviors about specific public policy issues, candidates, corporate reputation, and campaign messaging has yielded findings critical to successful outcomes even when conventional wisdom said success wasn’t possible.
Gogerty Marriott clients have consistently found that Jane’s reassuring presence while conducting a focus group elicits information, attitudes and trends that others might overlook, and her experience interpreting results and providing guidance to clients is unfailingly accurate and astute.
