Who We Are
Thompson Drake is a full-service public relations and marketing agency located in Bend, Oregon. The combined talents of the Thompson Drake team allow us to customize our services to a variety of clients in varied industries. Strong and effective client relationships are made possible because we understand the importance of long-term relationships and are committed to orchestrating results-driven campaigns.
Collectively, the agency's three principals possess more than 60 years of experience in the public relations, education, software and media industries and have worked for and with companies such as Cengage Learning, Brooks/Cole Publishing, Pearson Education Canada, Prentice Hall, CTB McGraw-Hill, Carmel (Calif.) Unified School District, Tektronix, Inc., Orcom Systems, Hunter Public Relations/Special Events, Gibbs & Soell Public Relations, Bostrom Corporation and Armanasco Public Relations.
Our numerous resources and contacts allow us to enhance and expand our clients' reputations and exposure. Clients enjoy the attentiveness of a small firm with the technical resources and connections of a large agency. Our operating philosophy is to grow our agency in quality, not necessarily in size. Moreover, by working strictly with the principals, we ensure the client isn't lost awash in a sea of inexperienced junior executives-a scene played out time and again with larger agencies.
Thompson Drake's services don't stop at public relations and marketing communication; we view our role as an integral part of our clients' marketing team. We dedicate ourselves to working with our clients to brainstorm new event concepts and to maximize the media coverage and business potential of existing or planned events.
We also maintain long-term relationships with talented designers, creative photographers and videographers, skilled printers, tech-savvy website developers, and other vendors who can make valuable contributions to a client's projects and the success of their company. Thompson Drake manages every assignment to meet each client's particular budget, schedule and unique needs.
These invaluable resources translate into results-time after time.
