+ What Our Clients Say +

Hiring Gavilan & Associates was one of the best structural decisions I've made. Gavilan & Associates managed our PR and marketing efforts for nearly five years, and their guidance and expertise truly enabled us to grow our brand and our organization in numerous ways.
Debra BenAvram
Former CEO, American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition
The Eye Bank Association of America worked with Gavilan & Associates to build a new integrated marketing and communications campaign to rebrand and revamp our annual commemoration, Eye Donation Month. Their team developed a comprehensive strategy that improved member usage of materials and resources, increased social media engagement, and gave more visibility to cornea donation and transplantation in the media. Their team was extremely insightful and made strong recommendations that contributed to the campaign’s success. Overall, the campaign had tremendous reach and was well-received by our leadership, members, and other stakeholders. I would highly recommend Gavilan & Associates for any organization’s marketing and communications needs.

Since 2017, the Gavilan team has played a key role in first launching, then growing Healthcare Simulation Week. They worked closely with SSH’s staff and committee to design and promote a week that engaged members and non-members throughout the world, and were instrumental in building recognition for the healthcare simulation profession.
