A few words about us.

SMAK Strategies is a full service Marketing and Public Relations agency. Clients range from top consumer brands to grassroots events to early-stage companies at the “tipping point” of major expansion. Inventive ideas and strategic planning are fully integrated into all initiatives to deliver exceptional, lasting results.

As the founder of SMAK Strategies, a small-by-design PR & Marketing company based in Boulder, Colorado, Maria Hennessey has spent the last decade creating and executing standout communication strategies and PR campaigns for a wide variety of outdoor & active lifestyle companies. At SMAK, we help build strong brands and great reputations by maximizing brand exposure across print, digital, social, and broadcast media platforms.

We understand that today’s brands are much more than the products and services they sell — they are a personal choice as well as a vital and fun component of a larger community. On any given day you can find us discussing strategy with our clients, brainstorming story ideas, creating compelling copy and tailor-made pitches, and communicating with a vast network of journalists, editors, content producers, and influencers.

We are motivated by seeing our clients reach greater levels of success. We are always looking for and presenting opportunities to better serve our clients — even if these fall outside of our scope of services.
