Our associates are one of a kind.  Their professional backgrounds, academic achievements, and personal philosophies are inextricably connected to our corporate values.  In an increasingly intense world where breaking news never stops, it's important to have a team that is fully engaged, remains in-tune with trends and influencers, and legitimately cares about the world in which they live.  At MDR Public Affairs, we fully recognize today's changing socio-political climates and deliver solutions that are current, highly impactful, and relevant.
