SEA Consultants

When Smith Phillips began working with SEA Consultants in 2007, the firm’s acquisition by Kleinfelder was years away. SEA Consultants was a well respected engineering and planning firm that was active throughout New England. The firm was rapidly growing, and leadership engaged Smith Phillips to create and implement a public relations program that would raise the firm’s profile throughout New England and introduce the firm to prospective clients and strategic partners.

Bill Smith’s public relations program established SEA Consultants’ leadership in a number of areas, including energy consulting, facility and campus planning, and asset management. The program also highlighted SEA Consultants’ reputation as an exemplary employer and established the firm as an engineering success story during the Great Recession. The program generated hundreds of stories in local business press, including the Boston Business Journal, New Hampshire Business Review, and MaineBiz; national engineering and architecture publications, including Engineering News Record (ENR), CE News, and Architectural SSL; and vertical industry publications like Environmental Protection, Public Works, and University Business.

Bill did amazing things with our PR program. High-impact placements, savvy campaigns, and new exposure that aligned perfectly with the firm’s objectives. He positioned us as thought leaders, and delivered measurable results. Best of all: he really understands professional services, and I always felt 100% confident that I could entrust him with our most valuable asset: the firm’s talented employees and clients.
