About Us - Marjorie Wilner
Marjorie's work combines business acumen, visual and linguistic acuity, and proven tactics for establishing a distinctive market positioning, building awareness and promoting demand.
Marjorie’s approach has evolved over her 25 year career, drawing on her studies in psychology and business administration, and experience as a financier and public relations executive. She spent the first decade of her career as a banker with Drexel Burnham, First Boston and Chase, honing the skills needed to understand complex businesses and help engineer their success. Marjorie then leveraged that background as the foundation for her work as a public relations consultant with Hill and Knowlton, representing such clients as Bankers Trust, Aetna and GE Capital. Marjorie then served as a senior corporate communications executive at PaineWebber and UBS, managing visibility and brand building initiatives aimed at clients, shareholders, employees and the media. Now, as the principal of MWC Marketing + Public Relations, she works with clients ranging from banking, insurance and real estate to health care, telecommunications and technology.
Diversity has become a regular theme for corporate boardrooms, the media, and the legal system. Everyone has heard about changing workforce demographics, the war for talent, the dangers of “group think”, and, of course, discrimination lawsuits involving name brand companies. Yet, despite their diversity efforts, many firms see little in the way of results, other than cynicism, resistance and ongoing attrition.
Our diversity communications engagements take on some of the toughest challenges in employee relations — overcoming entrenched attitudes and advancing cultural change. The process begins with background on the firm's diversity program, research into communications practices of the firm and its industry peers, and an attitudinal and awareness survey of employees. Leveraging this data, we develop communications that are credible, powerful and motivating to your internal audiences.
Marjorie has served on the board of directors of the Center for Book Arts and as an adjunct professor of marketing at Baruch College. Other professional affiliations have included the Financial Women's Association, the Public Relations Society of America and the International Association of Business Communicators.
Marjorie Wilner is a marketing strategist and a communications expert, helping organizations align themselves more closely with the needs and interests of their markets.
