Hear what our partners have to say about us

“Compass was first introduced to ECA strategies about 2 years ago and we were impressed by the white glove service and commitment to assisting us with approaching public opportunities. As much as anything, Eric has provided compelling strategic advice and has always been available when we had particular items where we needed focus. I think I’ve been most impressed though by the breadth of relationships that Eric has cultivated across the political spectrum in states and federal offices. Regardless of the state or district where we wanted to focus, there has never once been a time when Eric was unable to get us a meeting that we needed. To me, that’s the real mark of someone who can provide government affairs consulting! We’ve really enjoyed being an ECA client and look forward to continuing the relationship in the many years ahead.”
“Eric and his team at ECA Strategies have systemically expanded the strategic reach of our business. Like most small-to-mid size businesses, we struggled to successfully integrate government affairs into our operational calendar. The daily demands of running our business leave little time to pursue a comprehensive plan for government affairs. As the regulatory pressure continued to mount in our industry, the need to engage politically became too compelling to ignore. After careful vetting, we were proud to enlist ECA as our primary government affairs consultant. Not only is ECA a competent, trusted ally, but the firm’s boutique feel and approach is an ideal match for us. Furthermore, we are consistently impressed with ECA’s ability to deliver results and stand toe to toe with any of the DC firms working on the issues.  We’re proud to be ECA clients, and I consider Eric and his contributions vital to our sustainability and long-term success.”

“We greatly enjoy working on the Bipartisan Business Forum Series with ECA Strategies. Eric understands our issues and has helped facilitate relationships that have proven crucial in advancing our government relations efforts. AdvoCare is grateful to have a partner like ECA Strategies!”

“As Texas public educators, we are more skilled at teaching children how to read than advocating in the state political arena. ECA Strategies is an incredible teacher to help us learn how to communicate effectively — our lessons learned — that can be applied to education policy across the state. Beyond helping us, ECA Strategies is equally effective with our board members, growing their involvement in our schools and the issues that impact us.”
Case Study

“ECA Strategies has been an ideal partner for the Republican Jewish Coalition. As a Washington based entity, we always strive to be able to communicate the major issues of importance to the Jewish community to key Republican decision-makers and focus on important states like Texas. Eric’s political background and his relationships with both the Jewish community around Texas and elected officials across the country continue to help us build long lasting bonds to propel the RJC’s goals forward. As one of ECA’s first clients, we are not only pleased with the results the firm has produced for us but are also gratified to watch the impressive array of clients that have also come on board.”
