(W)right On Communications and Excelerate join forces to speed clients’ post-pandemic recoveries

by | Jun 4, 2020

San Diego-based (W)right On Communications and Excelerate have created a joint venture, (X), to help organizations navigate the new normal emerging from the worldwide pandemic faster and more successfully. Created by one of California’s premier communication agencies in partnership with one of the West Coast’s best management consulting firms, (X) provides seamless integration of business strategy implementation with supporting complex communications.

“Business and communication strategies are two sides of the same coin. When one is overlooked or shortchanged, the other can’t succeed,” says Grant Wright, CEO of (W)right On Communications. “Many CEOs are making abrupt pivots, evaluating new business strategies and struggling to keep stakeholders and customers engaged and informed. (X) provides a streamlined resource to achieve faster planning and successful implementation for better outcomes.”

“With (X), we are filling a market need for speed that is informed by data-driven insights, which has always been a key part of Excelerate’s mission and client value,” says Jana De Anda, President of Excelerate. “Together with (W)right On, we can help organizations rethink their business models, operational plans and communication strategies to protect and grow their business or market share.”

Wright and De Anda will co-lead (X) supported by their respective teams, combined resources and offices in San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland and Vancouver, B.C.

The two firms both have client partners coast to coast and share deep expertise working with retail, conservation, financial services, energy and water utilities, cleantech innovators, tourism and hospitality leaders, higher education institutions, not-for-profits, land developers, healthcare centers, manufacturers, regional and city governments and numerous other industries.
