Results matter

Cocker Fennessy is a Pacific Northwest public affairs firm that helps clients achieve their public policy and research objectives. We focus on getting results. We are creative problem-solvers. We know how to analyze challenging situations. And we are relentless in the search for pathways around obstacles.

Clients retain us because we are smart, accessible, honest, trustworthy, efficient and we deliver on our commitments.

We have in-house public opinion data collection and analysis capabilities, and we use the results to strategically frame issues and inform communications.

Every project is as important to us as it is to our client.   


Above are some of our current and past clients. For more details about our work, contact us!

Rick Cocker and Anne Fennessy created the firm so they could offer their talent and insight to private and public sector clients with a stake in the outcome of major issues being decided in the public arena.

We’ve had an opportunity to advise clients on communications about many issues shaping policies in the Pacific Northwest including energy, health care, land-use, transportation, economic development, housing and education.

Kris Faucett helped expand our capabilities to provide local government relations, community analysis, stakeholder and public engagement, and facilitation. Vanessa Lund, with a wealth of technical experience in public opinion research, gave us the ability to conduct a full range of research in-house which we believe produces better data to inform strategic communications.
