Research. Optics. Pre-Crisis Communications.
Silver Street Strategies is a boutique research and communications firm founded in 2017 by Alex Platkin and Kristen Bartoloni, former Director and Deputy Director of the Research Department in the Obama White House. We provide political research, optics consulting, and pre-crisis communications strategy to political, nonprofit, and private sector clients.
Plenty of people can clean up a mess. But what if you didn’t have to? At Silver Street Strategies, we believe that true communication successes require planning that prevents crises from happening and negative stories from being written in the first place.
Silver Street brings to the table decades of political and communications experience - for campaigns, interest groups, university and executive leadership, nonprofits, corporations, and prior to 2017, the White House and NASA. In all of those roles, they averted countless communications crises doing the unglamorous but critical work of due diligence: fact-checking, risk assessment, vetting, and research and rapid response in a non-stop, high-stakes media environment.
We’ll apply the same gold standard to your “pre-crisis” communications and research needs, taming an unpredictable and often uncontrollable 24/7-news cycle into one that’s a little more manageable – one where your good stories can shine.
