Crisis & Reputation Management:
From DEI and #MeToo issues to cybersecurity incidents, financial reporting and personnel issues, Reevemark’s founders and senior team have guided clients through some of the most high-profile, sensitive and brand-impacting matters over the last two decades. Reevemark works closely with clients and their legal and financial advisors to provide strategic counsel that best positions the client in the media and with investors. The team identifies the most likely scenarios and develops and executes a crisis plan to ensure that messages reach all key stakeholders and executives are prepared for the toughest questions. Reevemark also provides live support to clients in the midst of a crisis, including coordinating all internal and external communications, including media interactions, monitoring traditional and social media, gauging sentiment, and assessing the potential need to refine or augment communications.
