Our History

McCarthy Messaging was established in 2008 to help large complex organizations uncover and share their distinctive stories. Entrepreneur Margie McCarthy began as a one-woman shop and quickly recruited a team of writers, designers, and account managers as word spread and demand grew for her proprietary messaging formula.

Margie cultivated a national client base that included healthcare technology companies, health insurers, hospital systems, clinical research entities and wellness companies. From the outset, she developed a boutique messaging firm that serves a niche market of highly matrixed organizations. Today, McCarthy Messaging’s senior-level team drives projects from concept to completion, navigates complex environments with ease, and boosts clients’ strategic capacity.

We dive deep to uncover our clients’ distinctive stories, and then deliver powerful messaging that
creates momentum to propel our clients past their competition.
