Happy Clients

  • <span class='ut-author'>Delanie Walker</span> NFL Tight End, Tennessee Titans

    “Centurion immediately helped in countless ways as my NFL career took me to a new market. From driving and supporting my philanthropic goals to expanding my social media presence, their team is always effective and far-reaching. We’re also having fun in the process – that’s important.”

    Delanie Walker NFL Tight End, Tennessee Titans
  • <span class='ut-author'>Walt Augustinowicz</span> Founder and CEO Identity Stronghold

    “We interview a lot of consultants and agencies, but chose Centurion because their approach is different. They went to work immediately, executing a custom-built strategy that we trusted in as a global brand doing business with both the federal government and private consumer. Our ‘electronic pickpocketing’ campaign has validated the emerging issue of RFID payment and identity security, educating and connecting consumers with our brand on a very technical issue. Centurion has assisted with delivering and controlling our brand message through over 75 media outlets in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia and China, while outmaneuvering our competition and standing toe-to-toe with hired guns of a billion-dollar industry working to silence us. I trust my personal and professional brand with Centurion Strategies, and would encourage any company to contract with them for effective marketing, advertising and PR services.”
