Benton Wislinski, Founder and Principal:
A native and current resident of Columbia, SC, Benton spent several years living and working in Washington, DC managing government affairs and advocacy work for national organizations. Experience in the nation’s capital honed his expertise in political operations, lobbying, organizational development and online campaigns at the national level, advancing skills in delivering marketing, advocacy, development and campaign results in a new media age.
Says Ben, “Having learned the ins and outs of association PR management, online viral marketing and public policy at the national level, together with my background in political strategy and localized grassroots initiatives, I look to advantage my national and SC clientele with an integrated marketing and campaign approach that both develops their business or operation and rewards solutions for obstacles they face.”
Prior to launching this venture, Ben also paid his dues in SC and VA state offices, in an SC Congressional office, on several SC state/local campaigns, and as a consultant to non-profit/volunteer organizations in overhauling their marketing and advocacy platforms. He is a graduate of Randolph-Macon College Honors, Ashland, VA, and The George Washington University’s Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, Washington, DC, and he is a Board Member of several organizations in the Midlands of South Carolina. This background has afforded a unique skill set and many key relationships that our business will harness going forward to achieve our clients’ goals.
