About Us

FG was founded in 1998 by Chip Felkel, after an extensive background in state and national political campaigns which began with his work with Campbell for Governor (SC) and later the 1988 Bush-Quayle campaign. 

Since then, FG has served as a trusted advisor, navigator and connector to senior decision-makers at all levels of business and government providing a frank objective perspective on political and policy issues, on communications challenges and business development projects. Based on those years of experience FG launched RAP Index®, a revolutionary public affairs tool that uncovers an organization’s best stakeholder assets. Our expertise and insight has also been sought by law firms, associations and corporations as a speaker for staff retreats, training seminars, and annual meetings.

Chip Felkel is also a sought-after analyst of political and corporate affairs for regional, national and global media that represent major news and business media in print, cable and broadcast. 

We are proactive, creative and focused. Our extensive experience in strategic communications, in both politics and the private sector make us an invaluable partner. We serve a wide range of clients, from small business to Fortune 100 companies to state and national associations. Why not put our experience to work for you?
