Meet the team.

Humor. Speed. Honesty. We were very happy with the work. They achieved everything we needed to achieve. I respect them.

Al Nodal

Managing Director, Not a Cornfield

We are senior communication strategists with proven experience creating meaningful behavior change across a range of social causes. Each of us cares deeply about the causes we are advancing, and we share a commitment to exceeding all client goals.

Another strength that delivers outstanding work is our team approach to projects. Our senior partners are available for strategic guidance on all client accounts, ensuring you get our best thinking and resources through every phase of your project.

And we play well with others. Our team works shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients as an extension of their staff. We even embrace working with other communications firms and experts already in place. We believe ego should take a back seat to the important work to be done.

All Hershey Cause Communications team members embody our values: excellence, quality, substance, vision, energy, warmth and authenticity.
