Meet Hatcher

We do it all, so that our clients can, too. Call us a full-service strategic communications and marketing firm, call us energetic and creative, call us focused and fun — no matter what, call us if you want strategies that spur actions that lead to real change. We can’t wait to help you make a difference.

Purpose powers all our work, strengthened by deep understanding of our clients’ needs. Our partnerships start with an exchange of ideas, then together, we set goals. These trusting, effective relationships fuel the innovative strategies and imaginative campaigns that reach, inspire, and motivate.

One Team

Hatcher is home to hard-working, visionary strategists with big hearts who delight in the power of communications and good ideas. Our award-winning team includes persuasive storytellers, smart digital media strategists, savvy public relations professionals, accomplished multimedia designers, inventive visual artists, inspired event planners, and compassionate policy advocates. Our proud commitment to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace drives our organizational culture and allows us to deliver exceptional work. We are a women-owned small business headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, with work that spans our state and the country.


Hatcher embraces evolution and inspiration. We always have. Our visionary founder, Ed Hatcher and partner Angie Cannon, created a communications firm to inspire social change for good. In 2019, they passed the torch to Amy Buckley and Amy Fahnestock. With more than 50 combined years of experience in strategic communications and marketing, “the Amys” (as they’re affectionately called by their colleagues) built on Hatcher’s legacy and reputation for excellence, while also making their own unique mark on the firm.

With new ideas, fresh faces, and ever-evolving client needs, Hatcher launched an exciting rebrand on our 20th anniversary. We continue to look forward, but our hearts are still in the same place—with purpose-driven organizations seeking to improve lives and communities—as we hold tight to the values at the core of our work.
