Who we areIn 2007 both Ali Paul and Michael Williams had a similar idea that eventually became the driving force behind the formation of Paul + Williams. The concept was to maintain connections to the product, the creators, the ideas and the market. No titles, no office politics. Spend time learning about what drives our clients and what will fuel their future success. We aim to be helpful, smart, connected and strategic above all things. We are honest, straightforward and nice to deal with. We pride ourselves on efficiency. We work and play well with others. We place honesty and integrity at the heart of everything we do. We show up on time and we stay late. We love when people say: “You don’t strike me as a PR person.” We have fun, but not too much fun. Both Michael and Ali held posts at agencies of various size and stripe. That other agency experience —and maybe the fact that they’re both natives of Ohio— led to the desire to create something different. Our goal is to have as little turnover as possible, both with employees and clients. To us, everything is a long-term relationship. We take on clients that are unique, have a story, and are the best at what they do. And we make sure people know it.
