Engaging people + communities

LRG was founded in 1996 with a single contract and a staff of three. Twenty years later, LRG has grown into a full-service professional services company with 50 people and more than 100 clients focused on our core mission: engaging people and communities.

As a SBA-certified HUBZone small business and federal GSA-schedule contractor, we support a wide range of organizations in the government, nonprofit and private sectors with communication, outreach, event services and organizational development. LRG is among the top 10 public relations firms in the Washington, D.C., area according to the Washington Business Journal.

LRG’s diverse team of passionate, skilled and results-driven professionals consists of writers, editors, events experts, graphic designers, certified meeting planners, subject matter experts, outreach specialists, community advocates, and highly experienced nonprofit managers.

  • “LRG staff have been major players in the economic development of the City of Wilmington. LRG’s timely advice, counseling and governmental networking strongly influenced the State of Delaware’s successful bid for a new $20 million federal facility. We look forward to a continued relationship with LRG as we look at other economic development needs for the City of Wilmington.”

  • “As one of the country’s largest employers, we marvel at how the LRG team can speak our language, get to the heart of what we need to support our employee-base and provide the kind of customer service we live and die by.”

It’s true what they say: LRG delivers results.”

    Ron Newlan HUBZone Contractors National Council
