Engage. Influence. Achieve.

Bartell & Associates conducts methodical research to analyze clients’ needs and values, then translates these insights into promotional campaigns that achieve key objectives through open and engaging communication. Our in-depth understanding of the San Diego and broader Southern California political and community landscapes helps us build and maintain local and national support for our clients while creating lasting connections between our clients and their political communities. We assist our clients in government and public affairs by guiding them through an unfamiliar landscape and creating effective programs to accomplish their goals.

We also believe that complex problems require broad expertise. Founded in 2006 by Jim Bartell, we have a proven track record of success backed by years of experience developing innovative techniques to achieve results. Our decades of experience in government, media, community relations, and marketing enables us to offer a full range of services.
