• Dennis Horrigan

  • President & CEO, Catholic Medical Partners

We established a relationship with the Pantano & Associates team in 2010. They helped lead the rebranding of our organization and guided Catholic Medical Partners through an extensive public relations and strategic communications program that included the development and roll-out of our new identity, internal communications, radio and TV advertising, our annual report and newsletters, and other special projects. They have also assisted our organization in crisis management and communications. Throughout our relationship, the Pantano team worked effectively with our governing board and management team on each and every initiative. They brought PR science and discipline to our communications program. The Pantano & Associates team is knowledgeable, experienced, and accessible. They have been a valuable and highly motivated partner is helping us to not only create an effective and efficient public relations strategy, but also to execute and deliver on that strategy. The team is a easy to work with and brought both professionalism and creativity to the table. I like working directly with the individuals who do the work and I would highly recommend the Pantano team.

  • Episcopal Church Home

The Episcopal Church Home and Affiliates and Canterbury Woods have made recent monumental changes with far reaching community impact. With the sale of our property at the foot of the Peace Bridge and our impending development on historic Gates Circle, we needed more than just a public relations plan, we needed vision.

At a time in our organizational history when finely crafted public relations and media management were paramount, Phil Pantano’s advice, professional experience, as well as knowledge of the local political and media landscape provided us with all the tools necessary to navigate to success. He provided clarity in sometimes very murky waters and I look forward to continuing our partnership as we continue to grow our investment in western New York.

  • Director of Marketing, Harter Secrest & Emery LLP

Working in the highly competitive legal services field, Harter Secrest & Emery was looking for ways to better establish and showcase the expertise and experience of our firm and individual attorneys in the eyes of prospective clients and the general public. We wanted to work with a firm with the relationships, know-how and commitment to help separate us from the pack. We began working with Pantano & Associates in 2012, and the results have been outstanding.

Phil and his team immediately became an integrated and engaged partner. They have brought an understanding of how to identify and create opportunities for bringing a legal perspective to stories where one may not be readily evident. Along with strategy, they have been extremely agile in connecting our attorneys with reporters to provide in-depth information and insight when important issues rise in the public consciousness. We wanted results, and Pantano & Associates has delivered.
