Potomac Strategic Development (PSD) was founded in 2007 by Steve Carey. Steve and his colleagues wanted to create a new kind of firm - one that is a client-centered firm. "What is client centered"? The beltway is fee-based, while Potomac 1) first assess the client's needs and then determines the goal feasibility. We then work with each client to a fee structure that suits both parties, 2) Because we work to become a part of our clients' operations - and not merely a "contractor" - we become our clients' "DC office staff."
PSD is comprised of successful corporate, institutional, and non-profit executives that understand the importance of an effective Washington presence. They know that nearly every day, new laws and regulations are implemented in Washington that impact their bottom line. Without an effective response to these challenges, their organizations are at a competitive disadvantage.
PSD provides bipartisan solutions to challenges involving Federal and state government marketing, advocacy, appropriations, regulatory affairs, communications and business development. We identify multiple approaches and opportunities for clients to interact with Federal entities based on a meticulous analysis of their goals and priorities.
PSD has a team of highly seasoned and successful government and industry professionals. Our cumulative experience in the Federal, Local, and State advocacy field, as well as domestic and international business development, is a key factor in achieving consistent successes for our clients. PSD doesn't just provide advice and services; we become a member of your team.
