About Us

SpencerConnect Communications:

SpencerConnect Communications was started in 2002 to provide pragmatic, realistic, and cost effective solutions to small corporations in the Midwest. A chance meeting with Brian Pellitier, who had created Green Cardinal Communications. This led to numerous introductions to other freelancers who were looking to collaborate on projects. Over time the depth and breadth of services expanded.

Even though our focus was originally in Chicago and the Midwest, clients have hailed from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, London and New Delhi. We have worked closely with “C” level executives, marketing directors, well-know entertainers and government officials.
