About Us

Our team, probably like yours, has a passion for living a life full of extraordinary experiences and sharing them with others. We love where we live, the work we do, and the people we choose to work with. We believe this passion drives performance – both for us and for you. In fact, it’s won us a number of awards as a top PR and marketing agency in a number of industries. Together, with our creativity, ingenuity, and integrity, we translate this energy into breakthrough results for you.

Communication is at the center of everything we do.

For Parker Sanpei, communication is as much about hearing what’s being said as it is about saying something people want to listen to. Whether you’re in marketing, public relations, or advertising, success is only achieved with open dialogue. Since we choose to work partners we’re passionate about, we’re profoundly invested in everything you do. Within our team, ideas flow in both directions without limits. The same is true when we work with you. We listen as much as we speak. The outcome of this philosophy is a real, success-oriented partnership.

We all have a story. Meet our Executive Team.
