James F. O’Gara
Founder and Strategic Advisor

OnMessage has been helping CEOs, the C-suite and communications executives grow their businesses for more than 17 years. In fact, we pioneered the “strategic messaging” consulting space back in 2001.

Our team has deep and wide experience engaging at the highest level of the organization and breaking down highly complex business challenges. We specialize in translating strategies into meaningful stories that create positive, material connections with customers, employees and brands.

Our founder, James F. O’Gara, is a recognized thought leader in this space. He has unsurpassed expertise helping executive teams convert strategic communications into capital (customer relationship, employee engagement and brand loyalty) that fuels sustained business growth. Having worked with executive teams across hundreds of high-growth and Fortune 1000 companies, he has witnessed firsthand — what works, what doesn’t and how to maximize the return on every communications investment you make.
