From the outset, BIGfish was formed around a core commitment to provide the best possible service to our clients.


This commitment stems from our agency’s roots, which are not tied to former agencies, but rather the marketing and communications departments within tech companies. Having managed multiple PR agencies in-house, our founding team experienced firsthand what it’s like to work with PR agencies – what we liked, and what we didn’t. As a result, BIGfish was built from the ground up around how an agency should engage with, counsel, and collaborate with clients.

Our North Star is to be recognized by each one of our clients not only as their agency of record, but also as part of their communication team. We seek to build long-standing partnerships by providing strong communication, unwavering dedication, and exceptional strategic guidance. 

We listen. We learn. And we look around corners to anticipate potential problems before they happen. We constantly seek to understand our clients’ most important goals and objectives, and what it will take to achieve them. In short, we do everything in our power to ensure success.
