TrailRunner International is a strategy and communications advisory firm serving top enterprises, institutions, and individuals around the world.
TrailRunner helps clients win in today’s complex global landscape, with matters ranging from financial communications and crisis communications to international strategy and special situations. The firm takes a team approach across diverse disciplines including media, law, finance, and regulatory affairs to address opportunities and challenges that no longer fit neatly into traditional categories.
TrailRunner is based in Dallas/Fort Worth with offices in New York; San Francisco; Washington, D.C.; Shanghai; and Truckee, California.
Our priority is to help our clients win. To achieve this, we commit ourselves to providing not only best in class strategic guidance and execution, but unparalleled client service at all times. This is how we operate:
1. We are proactive, not reactive. We don’t simply wait for assignments and respond to your outreach; we consider our clients’ problems our problems and are constantly thinking through strategic issues and opportunities in real-time tempo. As discussed on our call, we intend to work alongside you as full partners; ideally, we would feel more like employees than outside advisors.
2. The team we introduce to you is the same team that will be serving you. There will never be an unpleasant surprise where you find yourselves relegated to more junior people than the team to whom you were introduced.
3. We thrive on complexity and unique situations. We regularly invest in a deep and nuanced understanding of our clients and the issues that affect them, so we can fully engage and provide the most value. Our work often interacts with GR, legal, financial, and international partners. We collaborate smoothly with partners like branding and investor relations advisors.
4. We highly value our clients’ confidentiality. You can see that we do not advertise our clients publicly. We only share information about our clients who are comfortable with our doing so. This allows us to operate at the highest levels of trust with our clients.
