We were so moved by the thoughtful words and attendance by the Mayor of Burbank, City representatives, and the leaders of the Burbank Chamber of Commerce at the ribbon-cutting celebration of our new headquarters in the heart of the Burbank Media District. Thank you to all who took the time to welcome Consensus to our new home, including Mayor Emily Gabel-Luddy; Tom Flavin, CEO, Burbank Chamber of Commerce; Marissa Minor, Burbank Community Development Dept.; Arda Tchakian, Jason Maruca, Supervisor Kathryn Barger; Blake Dellinger, Assemblymember Laura Friedman; Pamela Marcello, Congressman Adam Schiff; Arda Tchakian, Senator Portantino; and the business community leaders representing the Burbank Chamber Board of Directors and the Chamber Ambassadors. During the ceremony, Consensus Senior Vice President, Nazan Armenian, was also welcomed as a new member of the Burbank Chamber Board of Directors.

After more than a decade in downtown Los Angeles, we made a significant decision to locate our business in Burbank, which marks a new era for our firm and also is a symbol of the changing communications landscape. As public relations is increasingly content- focused, we felt it imperative to relocate our business to the entertainment capital of the world and draw on the dynamic environment and the wealth of creative talent in Burbank.

Ranked by the San Fernando Valley Business Journal as the No. 1 public relations firm in the Valley, we are proud to return to our roots where our business was originally founded by Julie Gertler in 1986.

For over 30 years, Consensus has pioneered innovative communications approaches in community engagement to change the conversation, broaden the dialogue and make it easy for a greater number of community voices to participate in meaningful discourse around quality-of-life issues.

We are proud to be part of the Burbank community and we look forward to engaging with the diverse range of stakeholders who make this city a remarkable place to be every day.

Consensus from the Inside Out: A Culture of Communicating to Empower

At that time, I had been interning at Consensus for only a little shy of two weeks, and didn’t fully understand what I was doing, much less understand what the company did. I definitely did not know how our work tied into our name. But during that engaging conversation in our office space one afternoon, it somewhat started to make more sense.
