OUR STORY

Seeing a need from campaigns and advocacy groups for a new generation of political operatives, MPC was formed in the midst of the 2016 campaign cycle. From humble beginnings in a dorm apartment, our organization has operated, managed, or consulted on over thirty campaigns or initiatives across the country.

Our team consists of seasoned campaign operatives, political party officers, grassroots organizers, creative designers, and public relations consultants, here to execute your strategic objectives.

Since our inception six years ago, we have strived to maintain our core values of honesty and commitment to our clients. 

Though our reach is nationwide, we are proud to call Utah home.
