While media, creative, and digital are fundamental to what we do, we also provide our clients with related services, including coalition building, campaign-style research, and event production.

Our presence in Washington facilitates strong relationships with Congressional offices and national advocacy organizations, which we leverage on behalf of our clients.

Heinrich Pesch

Why Pesch?

Pesch is named after Heinrich Pesch, a German Jesuit economist.

Pesch was an innovative thinker whose ideas were foundational to the development of Catholic Social Teaching, the school of thought that has influenced economics and political philosophy around the world for over a hundred years.

Pesch is a little-known figure today, but he communicated in the exact right ways to his primary audience—Catholic popes—as they constructed their body of teaching for generations.
