Cushman/Amberg Communications is an independent communications agency headquartered in Chicago with an additional office in St. Louis.

History[edit]

The agency was founded in Chicago in 1952 by Aaron Cushman as Aaron D. Cushman and Associates, signing the Illinois Eisenhower for President Campaign as one of its first clients.[citation needed] After an early focus in the entertainment industry, the agency expanded to serve a range of companies, from start-ups to Fortune 100s.[citation needed]

Over the years, the agency has maintained several satellite offices to serve different niche markets. Past offices include New York City; Los Angeles; Washington, D.C; and Omaha.

Following a 12-year career in the newspaper business, Thomas Amberg joined Aaron D. Cushman and Associates in 1983 and purchased the agency in early 1997, changing the name to reflect new ownership.[citation needed] The agency acquired boutique public relations firm Chuck Werle and Associates in 2000 and the healthcare marketing/public relations shop HealthInfo Direct in late 2006.[citation needed]

The agency’s capabilities include strategic counsel, media and analyst relations, crisis communications, social/online, message mapping, media training, media measurement, internal communications, editorial services, graphic design, event planning and executive positioning.
