Founded by Jeremiah and Mary Lee Mahoney in the late 1980’s, Mahoney Communications Group (MCG) began as a direct marketing and communications firm serving Volvo, BMW, Saab and other automotive giants.
Wanting to honor the hard work of his parents, Colin Mahoney reformed the company in 2009 as a stakeholder-focused public relations agency that builds and executes campaigns specifically tailored for targeted audiences. We identify our clients’ business objectives and utilize the most appropriate vehicle for communicating key messages to targeted audiences to achieve desired results. Our team is deeply experienced in developing effective strategic messages that are heard by those who matter most.
We are a consultancy consisting of experienced communications professionals who collaborate to execute coordinated campaigns across global markets and specialties. Because we value consistent messaging above all else, we offer a variety of communications services under one roof.
We specialize in energy markets and execute campaigns tailored for related audiences and pre-determined organizational goals. With a small population of stakeholders, we want to find exactly the right vehicles for your message. Only then will your message resonate and be heard by the right audience.
