Palladian Public Affairs

Palladian Public Affairs

EXPERIENCE MATTERS, and ours was forged on the ground floor of the politics and government — from local fire districts to countywide and statewide initiatives, to projects on the national and global stage. Palladian Public Affairs is a full-service government affairs agency based in Spartanburg, S.C., with a deep understanding of the importance of relationship-building and forming a partnership with our clients.

We know first-hand what it means to put long hours and hard work into what you love, so we treat client projects as if they were our own — from government relations to strategic communications, campaign and PAC management, and association development. We take a strategic approach to assessing the environment, structuring dynamic communications and marketing plans and recruiting talented teams to pursue our clients’ goals and objectives.


Our team will lead you on a deep-dive analysis into the needs you are trying to meet, defining realistic, achievable goals.


Next, we will develop a strategy, establishing a timeline and a budget. We will work with you to refine this into a plan of action.


Finally, Palladian Public Affairs will work with you through every step of implementation and execution.

The Palladian Group’s drive, reach and resources have been a tremendous asset in developing our strategic plan and implementing portions of it to move Cherokee County forward.
– Steve Bratton, Cherokee County Administrator
