What People Say About Us

I’ve worked with Schmidt Public Affairs for over a decade at three different organizations. At each stop, SPA has customized and executed communications and public affairs strategies to position us for success. These guys are the best and the grown-ups in this space. They are with me every step of the way – and are often one step ahead.
