Who We Are

Platform Strategy is a publicity, branding, & public relations boutique with industry-diverse clients across the United States as well as in Canada, Mexico, and Australia. Our offices are located in Vancouver, Washington on the Columbia River immediately across from Portland, Oregon.

Maggie Jessup, an award winning journalist turned publicity maven, founded Platform Strategy in 2002 to help remarkable people, companies, and causes build compelling brands, raise their visibility, and monetize the results.

Our professionals bring decades of experience from a variety of backgrounds ranging from the entertainment industry, graphic arts, journalism, and publishing to law, finance, technology, and political strategy. The team consists of publicists, social media gurus, web technology experts, graphic artists, publishing pros, content writers, media & speech trainers, and experienced marketing people.

Maggie’s husband Jay Jessup joined the firm in 2004. Prior to joining Platform Strategy he was a rainmaker for several professional services firms where we worked with industry leaders in technology, publishing, communications, and entertainment.

Jay Jessup and Maggie Jessup travel extensively to speak at business, political, technology, entertainment, and non profit events across America on the subjects of next generation publicity, branding, and publishing.

Platform Strategy clients become the leading voices of their industry and appear regularly on CNN, MSNBC, Fox & Friends, ABC News, and other outlets as well as in the pages of People, Forbes, USA Today, InTouch Weekly, and scores of other similarly varied publications.

The company is known for its unique mixing of compelling branding with celebrity level publicity to catapult Platform Strategy clients to the top level of their field. Best selling authors, iconic business leaders, celebrity scientists, winning candidates, highly visible professionals and others achieve unprecedented success as a result of Platform Strategy efforts. We accept clients only when we are certain that our unique skillset will deliver extraordinary results.
