Image Management Associates is an independent public relations and communications consulting firm. We build strategies that serve the needs of smaller to mid-size clients in the Midwest and beyond.

From our base in suburban Chicago we partner with businesses, organizations, and individuals nationwide, to design and deliver customized and targeted communications and public relations solutions for both narrow and broad-based constituencies.

Our wide-ranging platform of services and our accessible client service structure make us well-suited to meet the needs of:
  • Small to medium-sized businesses
  • Professional practitioners (solo and group)
  • Groups and organizations
  • Individuals

Sure, we have what it takes to work with the larger players.

However, our best clients:

  • Are smaller but growing businesses and organizations
  • Can be public or private companies
  • Have one employee, a few dozen, or a few hundred. Maybe even a few thousand.
  • Are successful enough to need our services, and competitive enough to want to take that success to the next level.

Maybe you sell or manufacture a product. Perhaps you offer a professional service. You might also have a special talent, or maybe your group represents a specialized skill, mission, or interest.

You know the benefits that come with building greater visibility, credibility, and awareness of you, your brand, and your image. You want results. We do too.

Contact Us, and we’ll take it from there, because

In our world, Image is Everything.
