Over the last decade, structural changes and increased regulation have dramatically impacted the way companies communicate with their key constituencies.

Over the last decade, structural changes and increased regulation have dramatically impacted the way companies communicate with their key constituencies. Senior managements today face a number of challenges: they can no longer speak freely with their sell-side analysts, they are inundated with conference invitations and meeting requests and the pressure of knowing that every word said will be scrutinized can be overwhelming. These challenges can often distract management teams and lead to disappointing results.

Recognizing the nuances of this changing environment, Westwicke Partners was founded in 2006 specifically to help companies develop comprehensive strategies to successfully communicate their stories, increase their visibility and build a quality, long-term shareholder base. Nine years later, Westwicke Partners has grown into the country’s largest healthcare-focused investor relations firm.

We are a national firm with offices strategically located in Baltimore, Boston, San Francisco and San Diego – some of the leading healthcare markets — and clients in more than 25 states. We have built an incredible team of knowledgeable, experienced and talented individuals who work with more than 90 public and private companies across all subsectors of healthcare.
