Kestrel West was founded in 2012 by two partners who have decades of experience in campaigns, media and politics, and who saw need for a new approach to public affairs in Idaho. Our work is rooted in helping business and political leaders reach their goals, and our success has made us one of the most trusted firms in the Northwest.
We use research, planning and execution of strategic campaigns to influence events and create good public policy. Our approach is rooted in well-crafted messages, honed preparation, meaningful engagement, credibility with key stakeholders and a unique ability to build support within communities of interest.
Through collaboration, creative thinking, smart tactics and intensive work we help clients develop a long-term approach to position their brands for the future.
If you have an idea for better policy, a problem with a regulator, a need to get to know leadership at a state agency, or a potential conversation with a newspaper reporter or community group, we can help. We do so in an elegant way that is always mindful of protecting reputations and improving your position in the competitive marketplace.
Our company was founded because we enjoy providing value by serving others.
We are legislative and political experts who speak the language of business.
We don’t promise connections or glamour. We do promise structure and results.
We don’t judge or push radical change. We help our clients be their best.
Our expertise comes from years of helping people and organizations achieve goals.
We pride ourselves on doing what clients need rather than what makes us look good.
It’s not about us. It’s about our clients and the values important for their success.
