Marking a milestone

Celebrating 18 years of client wins

We shape public strategies for CEOs, philanthropists, founders, and investors.

Vianovo is a strategic advisory firm for high-stakes brand, policy and crisis issues. For more than a decade, we have helped some of the world’s most recognized names shape public opinion and media conversation, win legislative fights and investor battles, manage crises and litigation, and expand across markets and borders. Our bipartisan team has its roots in big-time politics. We’ve served on presidential campaigns and Capitol Hill, held senior positions at the White House and DOJ, worked for startups and major corporations, and practiced law and journalism. The firm was founded in 2005 and has offices in Austin, Dallas, Washington, and Mexico City.

Vianovo believes brands are candidates and every day is election day.

We live in an information democracy where high-profile companies, causes and individuals are now candidates. Each day, consumers vote with their purchases. Citizens with a like or retweet. Investors with their stock trades. Policymakers with their legislative positions. The media with its stories. Activists with their attacks. All of these actions and constituencies affect reputation, sales, transactions, and market value. Winning requires a strategic campaign approach.

Strategy first, always

Strategy and research should drive tactics, not the other way around. So we start there, always.

Senior leader engagement

Our senior-level leaders get their fingernails dirty. There is no bait-and-switch to junior staff after the proposal.

A strong focus on action

We move at campaign speed. We like to make things happen, not just make reports that sit on shelves.
