The Philipson Group is a strategic communications firm focused on delivering innovative marketing, smart design, and creative collaboration for consumer and enterprise marketers, nonprofits and community ventures.

Michael Philipson and Lewis Stess formed the Rochester–based company in 2008. They had first worked together in Miami where Lewis was Chief Development Officer for the American Red Cross and Michael led a thriving design firm.

From the very beginning, the company has placed a premium on innovation and experimentation. Michael and Lewis have always believed it was crucial that they offer their clients the freshest thinking to give them a competitive advantage.

Today, innovation remains a vital part of the firm’s DNA. That’s partly out of necessity, says Michael. “We were—and are—relatively small and lean, so we can approach things from a different perspective.
