JO ELLEN SNELL
MANAGER OF COMMUNITY & PUBLIC RELATIONS
E-470 PUBLIC HIGHWAY AUTHORITY
“E-470 has worked with Christopherson & Company for over 20 years. Before the first shovel broke ground in the late 1980s, Dan and his team helped shape public opinion in the Denver metro area about user-fee highways and the critical need for a beltway around the eastern half of the Denver area. Throughout the years, Christopherson & Company has assisted with grand openings of new segments of the toll highway, new bridges and interchanges, and new ways to collect tolls. Dan's expertise with media relations has been a great asset in pitching newsworthy stories in addition to handling emergency media alerts due to critical accidents. He and his team are accessible 24/7 which adds a great level of comfort for a round-the-clock highway operation. Christopherson & Company is a professional and highly-skilled public relations and marketing firm.”

"We have been delighted with Christopherson & Co's performance as our marketing department for the past 2 and a half years. They quickly learned what our needs were and helped us translate them into effective plans. Their aggressive and disciplined management, their ability to adapt to new information and circumstances, and their expertise in all aspects of marketing have produced tangible and positive results. They have been a pleasure to work with."
the past ten years, six hotels, and five cities, Christopherson
& Co. and I have worked together. We have had some great success!
What makes this long-term and long distance relationship work is
simple; your company reflects the characteristics of Dan Christopherson.
Creative, professional, responsive, and pleasant. From a business
point-of-view, you bring the project in on time and at a reasonable
cost. As my responsibilities have changed and the hotel business
changes, I can always count on one thing being consistent, that
is, Christopherson & Co."
essentially have been our marketing department for over 14 years.
They came in and did research that helped us understand where we
stood with our customers and prospects, then based on what they
found out helped us build a strong, unified advertising program.
They really understand our business and our niche, and they are
easy to work with."
REGIONAL DIRECTOR - PUBLIC AFFAIRS
& Co.'s public relations professionals were super to work with.
They listen well, and they kept things moving. They developed a
creative approach to public affairs research that helped Coca-Cola
get a handle on how its community affairs programs in metro Denver
are perceived. They combined in-depth interviews with community
leaders, public opinion polling and focus groups to give us a comprehensive
look at where we stand in the public's mind, what the public expects
from our community affairs involvement, and what effect our community
affairs efforts have had on brand decisions."
the day Dan Christopherson opened his business back in 1983, we
were one his first three clients. We have been so loyal because
he understands our business and he and his MKTG group have really
helped us build our bank, guiding us through a name change, establishing
our positioning, and developing and implementing our annual marketing
plan. We don't have an internal marketing department and, thanks to them,
we don't need one. "
DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC INFORMATION
JEFFERSON COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY
& Co. has helped Jefferson County Public Library significantly improve
its services to users through practical, reasonably priced research.
We particularly appreciate the Christopherson staff's willingness
to listen and work with us cooperatively."
DENVER FILM SOCIETY
served as our pro bono advertising agency for three years, helping
us promote our Denver International Film Festival (DIFF), several other
smaller festivals, and our annual Party with Oscar fundraiser. They
are creative, responsive and fun to work with. They did everything
from television and radio public service announcements to newspaper
and magazine ads. Their entertaining Opening Night festival sponsor
acknowledgment video was incredibly complex to pull off, but they
did a super job and it drew enthusiastic applause. Working with
them, we set new records for attendance at DIFF as well as at our
Denver Jewish Film Festival."
the years, Dan Christopherson and his MKTG group have been very
responsive and provided excellent value for our marketing dollars.
They take time to listen and understand my challenges, then help
me develop and execute my plans. I don't just think of them as my
PR or advertising agency, they are my marketing department."
