Westmeath is a boutique communications consultancy committed to driving our clients’ business performance.

Nothing replaces experience when you need a trusted advisor. We’ve walked the walk, and will guide you every step of the way.

In today’s competitive marketplace, performance is bolstered by the right skills, an effective operating model and properly aligned resources.

Building relationships in our digital world isn’t easy. It takes a keen understanding of what drives constituents, along with rock solid content and good strategy.


Why Westmeath?

Because we’ve been there.

In the trenches and in the ivory tower. Sweating it out like you, on the front lines at Fortune 500 companies, ad agencies and public relations firms. We’ve managed everything, from product recalls to labor disputes, from acquisitions to restructuring initiatives, from CEO transitions to branding campaigns.

You’re beyond pixie dust messaging. You’re too deft for yes-man consultants. You need a partner that supplants the suits, storyboards and the pony tails. You need a partner who cuts to the chase, adeptly navigates your culture and delivers practical alternatives.

Enter Westmeath™. Our virtual model is battle tested. We deliver solutions without the bureaucracy that’s typically associated with the traditional agency model. Think consistency. Beginning, middle and end processes. Milestones against timelines. Repeatable methodologies. These are our ways.

Whether you need a sparring partner or a sounding board, we help you punch above your weight.

Our counselors are all seasoned professionals who have held the reins of high stakes marketing and communications programs. This Netsortium™ of professionals draws upon the intellectual capital and C-Suite experience of our founder, Anne M. McCarthy. Serving as a communications executive for global corporations including Sara Lee Corporation, IBM, Polaroid, DuPont, SAP, Western Union and CH2M , Anne developed a passion for international business, a holistic approach to problem-solving and a world-wide network of top talent. She knows what hard work accomplishes and she isn’t afraid of breaking a sweat.

“I have known Anne for more than 15 years both as a global communications leader and now at the helm of her consultancy. I have always found her intellect and critical thinking skills to be in the top echelon of global communications professionals.  Her intuitive ability to read a room, discern the pulse of the executives in the conversation, and then offer targeted advice, is superb. In addition, Anne is a realistic professional who combines her sensibilities with her creative perspective to produce outcomes for her clients that area aligned with their values, business objectives, and intent – she is a voice that every company and executive should have as they seek problem solving partners – she is a true “partner” to her clients, which many profess to be and Anne embodies in every conversation.”

Anne McCarthy is an incredible strategist, communications executive and coach.  Anne and her team helped me discover, polish and narrate my personal brand and communicate it consistently and effectively through social media and online channels.  As the result, my followership has increased by 30% and I am constantly been sought after as an authority on the subject by corporations, agencies and individuals.  Lastly, I never knew the power of networking and the strategies for effective networking until becoming a client of Westmeath.  Through Anne’s coaching, I have established an expanding and powerful personal network which has been an invaluable source for further connections, influence and personal development.  It has been a true privilege working with Westmeath and their world class team.  I know I will work with Westmeath again in my future endeavors and I honestly can’t wait!
