Reputation Management


Weiji, the Chinese character for crisis, comes from combining “risk” and “opportunity” because a wisely handled risk can have positive results and at Xenophon, we know this to be true.

A crisis can be debilitating for an organization, especially if accompanied by intensive press coverage. Xenophon started as a crisis communications firm and over the past 16 years, we’ve handled everything imaginable: 9/11 for the airline industry; Katrina for The Salvation Army; the players in the Duke Lacrosse scandal, high profile litigation; cyber hacks; recalls and everything in between.

Xenophon offers a full range of crisis services: 24/7 incident response, plan assessments, training & drills, issues management, managing investigation journalists, forensic research and social media. Most PR agencies say they do crisis communications, but few, if any, have the proven track record of Xenophon Strategies.
