About us

Founded by Debbie Hagen in 1992, the Hagen and Partners team – all senior practitioners – has extensive experience in the following sectors:

  • Energy
  • Banking/Finance
  • Fulfillment/Logistics
  • Commercial Real Estate

The firm's talented marketing and communications pros take a personalized approach to every client's assignment. Instead of offering a one-size-fits-all campaign, we explore your specific goals and objectives; then develop a detailed plan to help you achieve your desired results. With a special expertise in investor relations, we work with both emerging public companies and well-established multi-billion dollar corporations.

Depending on your company's particular need, you'll find our Hagen and Partners team working side-by-side with some of the country's most experienced public relations, communications and investor relations professionals. The result? A boutique agency that helps you achieve your desired objectives without the "big agency" hierarchy or overhead.

Since we've worked with so many of our clients month-in and month-out for more than 10 years, that tells us our approach is working!
