Greg Jenkins Joins Firm
In a little over two-years since launching Perceptual Advisors, we've brought together a world-class team of senior marketing and communications professionals to build brands, protect reputations and provide senior hands-on services to clients. What differentiates us is that every member of our team is a senior professional---each of us rolls up our sleeves and we do the work. There is no delegation to junior personnel, because there aren't any here. With our talent, scale and unique model, we believe we can offer a superior value proposition to clients in contrast with any other firm in the industry. Our clients include venture-funded early stage growth companies, Fortune 500 enterprises and organizations with complex brand and reputation challenges.
The newest addition to our growing global team is a testament to the caliber of talent we are bringing to our firm.
We are very proud that Greg Jenkins has joined as Managing Director/Head of Corporate Reputation Management, based in Northern California. Greg has had an incredible 30-year career: he was Executive Director of the Lincoln Project's 501(C)3; he worked in crisis communications in the White House under President George W. Bush; and he was Communications Director at the International Trade Administration. Greg is also an experienced journalist who covered breaking news, Capitol Hill, the Administration, and a presidential campaign. In that role he was also dispatched to Kosovo to organize multi-country coverage of that war. He also has deep political experience having worked on five presidential campaigns. In the private sector, Greg was part of the team that organized comms strategy around Alibaba's IPO and helped build the company's first corporate affairs function. He also was a Director at Brunswick Group, where his clients included Visa, Chevron, Morgan Stanley, Airbnb, Uber and others.
