Twenty years ago, with two young children at home and hardly a fortune in the bank, I left a big international PR firm to start Devine +Partners because I was tired of performance reviews, financial spreadsheets and a corporate bureaucracy. I was betting the house – literally – that this market needed a communications firm that truly understood client needs and then executed relentlessly to get results. I also wanted to do it with a team of committed, caring and fun professionals who I couldn’t wait to see every morning.
And so D+P was born at 1831 Chestnut. I am thrilled about our two decades worth of success and very proud of the fact that we have more than a few clients who have trusted us with their success for over 15 years and some have been with us almost since the beginning in 2003.
As I look ahead to the future, I can promise this: We will never stop evolving. We will always look ahead to anticipate and integrate the latest strategies, techniques and technologies. And we will always place a premium on the importance of relationships with you – our clients, friends and colleagues.
Thank you for being part of our story and for allowing us to play a role in yours. Here’s to the next 20 years!
