Associations, Coalitions & Trade Groups
Gramercy’s extensive work with associations of all sizes — from small, localized coalitions to large statewide organizations — is indicative of our ability to navigate the many needs of diverse memberships.
Our work is always impactful, whether the goal is a campaign with immediate importance, or a long-term, institutional effort.
We work closely with association leadership to meet goals, including brand articulation and leadership positioning. At the state Capitol, we make our clients the go-to media resource on the issues that matter. And when it’s time to communicate successes to membership, Gramercy is there to develop the internal communications strategy to ensure association members are part of the conversation.
Gramercy has worked with businesses across the state, from Fortune 100 companies with complex needs to startups looking to make a splash in the market.
Our work has ranged from helping major brands reposition or introduce themselves to new customers; public affairs campaigns; assisting in new business development; strengthening relationships with the media; providing training and planning to the C-suite; and helping navigate crisis situations.
Gramercy also has a real grasp of corporate social responsibility, devising strategies that create public conversations about positive charitable works that have real impacts on the communities that businesses serve.
Gramercy’s clients have contributed more than $10 billion in economic activity in the State of New York alone, and our firm has played a pivotal role in the realization of some of the largest economic development initiatives in the Empire State over the past decade.
Simply put, no one understands the complexities of economic development in New York like Gramercy, from conception to completion, and some of the largest developers in the country have trusted us with their projects – and by extension, their brands, their reputations and their successes.
Be it a competitive licensing process, attaining complex state or local approvals, measuring and influencing public opinion, or organizing headline-grabbing groundbreakings, topping outs and grand openings, Gramercy has been there – and won.
Energy & Environment
No issue in New York State is as complicated and important as Energy, as the state seeks to vastly broaden the development and transmission of renewable sources. New York State has also been at the center of some of the nation’s most hotly debated energy matters.
Gramercy has worked with companies involved with the development, generation, transmission and sale of energy and energy products. Our clients have ranged from businesses seeking to deliver real results through large-scale energy production to purveyors of alternative energies poised to change the way we think about how we power our communities.
Our work has ensured that our clients’ stories are heard throughout a complex, highly charged and fast-moving conversation about the future of energy.
From care delivery to public policy, Gramercy has an intimate understanding of the health care industry in the State of New York. Our team has worked with hospitals, specialty practice groups, insurers, community-based organizations and policy drivers.
Our clients have also included one of the first companies licensed to produce and distribute medical cannabis in the State of New York, a highly nuanced engagement that required our team to simultaneously introduce to regulators, patients and the public a new company and industry, as well as dispel long-held misconceptions about medicinal cannabis use. The company is fast-growing and expanding to new markets with Gramercy’s help.
Gramercy has worked with both major and community-based health care providers to tell the stories of their good work and help favorably position their organizations in a rapidly changing marketplace. Additionally, we have experience working with associations and organizations fighting the opioid crisis and seeking new investments for community health initiatives.
Gramercy has been involved in some of the biggest conversations about mobility across New York, representing the state’s major public transit systems, impacting transformative mega-projects and working with those that build the infrastructure that supports modern transportation.
We have a deep understanding of how transportation impacts economic development, education, health care and the daily lives of millions of New Yorkers. We work with clients in the transportation sector to help them advocate for policies that will improve mobility and make their mark on projects that will serve people for decades to come.
