Here’s a partial list of clients served by J. Addams & Partners

  • Smart, intuitive and with no bureaucratic layers, the J. Addams & Partners firm is a true lean communications machine. No matter how challenging or complex a situation, the entire JA&P team takes the time to listen and understand before mapping out a recommended course of action. While quickly zeroing in on a client’s needs, the group pools their unique talents and expertise, enabling the delivery of everything as promised, and then some. Whether I have a problem or an opportunity, J. Addams & Partners is my go-to marketing communications resource.


    Michael Pittman

    CEO, Lead the Way, Inc.
  • The quantity of work J. Addams & Partners produces with a small team in servicing clients demonstrates the high productivity and cost-effectiveness that most PR firms should deliver – but don’t. I’ve seen twice as many people at much larger firms who fail to generate even half the quantity and quality of work that JA&P delivers.


    Jane. H. Bick, Ph.D., APR

    Public Relations Counsel and Professor of Communications
  • (This is) probably the most impressive press kit I’ve seen in a long time, and I see a bunch of them. Very well done…and very complete. Will this it to my JRN 450 class at Central Michigan University. I teach PR/Journalism there.


    Ed Hutchinson

    Spring Garden Editor, Associated Press
  • J. Addams and Partners grasped our core values, understood our nonprofit budgetary limitations, and created an outstanding communications toolbox that educated our critical audiences about what the Parent Corps is and its significance.


    Sue Rusche

    President and CEO, National Families in Action
  • Congratulations to all of you on the product launch team for your contributions to this rating and review in one of the most important consumer publications in North America. Yes, a lot of credit goes to the development team, no doubt, but unless the product and its associated information are communicated effectively to the media, nothing will come of it. J. Addams & Partners and the Honda PR Team did the legwork, wrote the copy, produced the press kits and events − doing what PR pros are supposed to do, and it paid off. Kudos to all of you.


    Kurt Antonius

    Senior Manager, Public Relations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
  • I must see a dozen of these media kits a week—everything from tires to new trucks to motorcycles and even clothing lines, and this is the only one that stands out on the shelf. Very creative and nicely put together. Has to be the most unique that I have seen this season.


    Matthew Baynard

    Product Evaluations Section Editor, the Rubicon Media Group Inc.
  • During my three years as an Executive Vice President at Exide Technologies, the J. Addams & Partners team not only met my needs, but far surpassed my communications expectations. The JA&P group performs as true counselors, knowledgeable about communications on all levels and highly responsive and professional in whatever they deliver. As one example, their work in earning media coverage about EXCELL, Exide's lean manufacturing system, helped buoy the success of the initiative inside and outside the company among a variety of key stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers and investors. J. Addams & Partners is an important communications partner, and this fact I simply cannot overstate.


    Robert B. Weiner

    Senior Vice President, Global Manufacturing & Engineering, Exide Technologies
  • J. Addams has been a valuable partner to PAS Technologies. Their team always goes the extra mile to understand our marketing needs. They invested their time to fully understand the PAS company vision, markets we serve, our products and services, our customers, and to ensure our messaging is relevant and on target. They were instrumental when PAS rebranded in 2014 and worked around the clock to help make the transition seamless. No matter what project we hand them, they always respond quickly, with accuracy and passion to deliver good work. J. Addams is dedicated to the marketing success of their clients, and we couldn’t be happier to have them as part of our team.


    Thomas C. Hutton

    CEO, PAS Technologies Inc.
  • Before joining J.M. Huber, I worked with J. Addams & Partners through a period of extremely difficult time at a company where communications with internal and external stakeholders were crucial. The team at JAP was always responsive and reliable, many times working through all hours of the night to ensure information flowed in a timely manner. They placed a strong focus on customer service, often times I forgot that they had other clients as I felt they were my internal team. Their extensive history and knowledge with my company was highly valuable to ensure consistency and integrity of messaging. J. Addams & Partners is a consummate professional firm where the team really cares deeply about the clients and their needs.
