About Us

Blaes Communications Consulting, LLC was founded in 2011 by Valarie Blaes to help architects, engineers, construction companies, facilities management, other marketing agencies and professional services industry clients  not only achieve but exceed their marketing goals.

Having worked in A/E/C companies’ marketing departments for over 25 years, Ms. Blaes  gained a keen understanding of the in’s and out’s of these professional services industries. This experience and background has enabled Blaes Communications Consulting, LLC to continue to provide A/E/C firms with a multitude of marketing services including RFP management, coordination and writing for state, local and federal government submissions, among others.
