When we started the Donovan Group, we were a group of one. The name was aspirational.
My hope was that I could take my passion for public education, along with my background in educational policy, public relations and marketing, and create a full-service firm that would match the largest marketing and public relations firms in the country. I wanted to focus on communications consulting, content creation and crisis communication assistance, all while providing outstanding value and the top-notch customer service that would become our calling card for years.
I am so pleased to say that the formula has worked. Now with offices in three states—Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois—we serve clients on an ongoing basis in eight states. Our group now includes education policy experts, former journalists, content writers, survey and polling experts, website developers, videographers, copy editors, project managers and support staff.
Earlier this year, we launched the nation’s first national crisis communication service and have worked with hundreds of schools and districts across the country as they deal with situations requiring urgent communication.
Now, we look to take the next step. In the coming years, we intend to grow our reach significantly, by opening offices across the United States.
With that in mind, we are seeking exceptional people from a variety of fields and professions, including school PR, non-school public relations, marketing, journalism and educational administration and teaching. Whatever your background, we have the size, scale, training and culture to help you deepen your skills, broaden your strengths and increase your impact.
If you have a passion for public education and the students and families it serves, an entrepreneurial spirit, intensity and a deep desire to work hard to accomplish goals, a commitment to high standards, ethics and core values, and if your principles match ours, we want to hear from you.
Please reach out to us today and let’s begin a conversation.
Joe Donovan, President
