At GillespieHall, our PR, Marketing and Social Media firm in Delaware and Philly, we know every successful brand is propelled by compelling storytelling. And that’s what we do. Tell your story effectively.


Creating awareness and developing loyal brand advocates starts with understanding the target audiences. The GH team produces inspiring work that consistently delivers measurable results. Successfully integrating all involved communication channels, we increase awareness and change behaviors.


Our business is to grow yours.


Our holding company, BGP Publicity, was founded in 1996 and GillespieHall opened for business in 2002 as a PR and marketing firm with a focus on healthcare. Dynamic agency Partner Bridget Paverd, a savvy global PR practitioner and strategist, hand-crafted the beginnings of GillespieHall and in 2006 (the year Facebook started) our agency formed a digital marketing department.


Teamwork at GillespieHall


We’ve earned success and international awards because our diverse team brings varied talents and experience to the table. We represent three generations, eight business disciplines and five continents—we even speak seven languages—and we work together on every account:

  • Our Public Relations Team provides PR counsel 24/7. We’re  metrics-driven crisis counselors, media strategists and campaign technicians who love working “in the trenches” with our clients.  


  • The Digital Marketing Team are social media marketing innovators skilled at website development, digital messaging, business and economics research, and social media applications.  


  • Adding a spark of inspiration, the Creative Team features proven visual specialists and designers, skilled writers and content creators, photographers, video and audio artists.


  • The Operations Team keeps our PR firm running on all cylinders with top-of-the-line project management and a talent for building and developing client relationships.  



Clients Around the World


Our clients span the globe from Philadelphia to London, an impressive cadre of  successful corporations, family-owned businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals in finance, healthcare, biotech, education, consumer service, IT, agriculture and social services. By the way, we work with famous authors and politicians as well—life is never boring at GillespieHall!  


No matter what industry they’re in, our clients are passionate about what they do and they care deeply about one thing—building their brands. They like to stay connected with their clients, consumers and online audience, and they recognize that teaming with GillespieHall gives them an edge on the competition. 


Keeping It Confidential


At GH, client confidentiality is vitally important. We want our clients to be in the spotlight, not our firm. As we like to put it, “We prefer to have your back instead of being out front.” As your undetectable “secret weapon,” we keep our client relationships absolutely confidential—only with our clients’ permission do we provide referrals for prospective GH clients.

  • Websites

  • Media Relations

  • Crisis Management

“GillespieHall approaches their publicity work in a way that turns it on its head, but only when necessary, and the team instinctively knows when it needs this. Smart thinking. Smart execution.”

Heather Bowen, Creative Executive Director, Baker Street Agency

“GillespieHall helped develop my reputation as a strong community and industry leader. A more robust LinkedIn profile, media training and speechwriting services helped bring me to that next level.”

Matthew S., Business Owner, Service Industry, Wilmington, Delaware

“We hired GillespieHall to assist us to transition an existing D.C. school into an entirely new D.C. Charter School. GH created our visual brand which included everything from creating a vision and mission statement, new logo and tag line, to designing and expediting signage, school collaterals, and school uniforms. GH was involved in every detail of launching and sustaining the new school; they designed a new website; designed and implemented a social media strategy around recruiting students and keeping parents informed. CTA exceeded enrollment goals by almost 30% the first year we opened. We attribute this largely to the social media strategy designed and managed by GH.”

Dr. L. Henderson, Executive Director, Cedar Tree Academy Public Charter School

“We hired GillespieHall to completely rebrand our firm. Their attention to detail is unprecedented. Under Bridget Paverd’s leadership, the GH team misses nothing. GH understood our need for unified and compatible image and messaging. They have taught us that a brand is both a discipline and an asset. We always thought we were a remarkable company – now, after GH’s branding campaign, everyone knows we are a remarkable company!"

John Hartnett, CEO, Capital and Worth

“Working with the GillespieHall team is a pleasure. They delivered a web product that surpassed our expectations: well designed, uncluttered, elegant, powerful, on time and on budget. Their digital team leaves nothing to chance. We could not be more pleased.”

Robert Wilk, VP, ICT

“GillespieHall measures every outcome from every communication platform and provides us with data in an easily digestible console—data I share with my board and funders on a monthly basis."

Dr. Lynn Fahey, CEO, Brandywine Counseling and Community Services
