    Valek & Co. team enters fourth year with noteworthy health care, science and technology experience
    Valek logo

    As Valek and Company, Inc., completes its third and most successful year, President Ray Valek looks with pride toward both the past and future.

    "What we've done in less than three years is amazing," he said. "But the potential for the future is even greater because of the team we've assembled."

    The Valek & Co. team consists entirely of senior-level professionals who provide a full range of marketing and communication services including branding, communication strategy, marketing communication and advertising, public relations, writing, research and more.

    Participate in our Great Communicators blog

    Valek & Co.'s revamped Web site enables blogging. The theme of the blog will be "Great Communicators." We will take a look at past and current, as well as famous and not-so-famous, communicators and talk about how we can apply their talents and methods to practical situations.

    In our e-newsletter, after receiving ideas from our readers, we wrote about Abraham Lincoln, Hubert Humphrey and Your Favorite Teacher.

    Ray Valek continues to write

    While managing his team on integrated communications projects and campaigns, Ray continues to be a working writer, spending a healthy percentage of his time crafting words. "Writing about my clients and their work - whether it's a speech, news release or strategy document - keeps me fully engaged in the details of what they do," Valek said. "I won't ever delegate that responsibility - it's too important."

    Our clients to date
