Headquartered in Boston with a sister agency in New York City, we are true partners with our clients, working together to obtain results that matter.

Jennifer Gear and Connie Swaebe

Jen lives her life “off script” in a constant creative process. Connie draws inside the lines, bringing thoughtful structure to each project. Their perfect pairing brings a systematic originality that is both imaginative and effective. After becoming best friends at Hill and Knowlton in 1985, Connie and Jen joked about starting a business together. Nine years into Gear Communications, they are still each other’s complement and still laughing. Oh, and their clients are really happy too.

Our super-charged energy and creativity is brought to you by a dedicated team of talented people supported by a network of exceptional partners.
