Proven Expertise

Today's 24/7 media cycle is relentless, as well as exciting to be a part of. In fact, there is nothing more thrilling than when the media celebrates you and your business. But when they don’t, news forces are ruthless—they can post dangerous misconceptions on the Internet and publish hurtful accusations across tabloid headlines—all of which can kill a reputation that took years to develop in mere minutes. For two decades, CEO Advisors, an internationally-recognized, high-level strategic communications corporation headquartered in New York City and San Diego, proudly stands by a highly confidential, tailor-made approach for each conglomerate and its executive team. The company is often sought out by many—law firms, boards of directors, venture capitalists, academic institutions, and foundations, as example—to jump start their company’s reputation expeditiously and/or help them to stay at the top of their industry. CEO Advisors also spearheads strategies for a global list of well-known personalities at the height of their careers or caught in unfavorable spotlights, helping them to unravel negative press in favor of reinvention.

"Any executive with a smartphone knows that mobile devices, digital technologies and social networks have shifted power from the few to the many.
Today 140 characters tweeted from someone's living room can ignite a revolution, eviscerate a reputation or hijack a company's well intended message.
For leaders, this means a shift in focus and a need to get comfortable with the unknown.
My company has the expertise to respond to the unexpected—to be resilient in matters that require more than proper planning.”

—Jan Strode, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, CEO Advisors
