About Us

The Galvanizing Group is a brand strategy consulting and marketing company in Portland, Oregon. We have been helping brands and businesses connect with customers and prospects to increase loyalty, referrals and sales since 2002.

Our Team

Small, smart and flexible, we combine strategic thinking with creative implementation to deliver results. We don’t assign projects to account executives or junior staff members because we don’t employ any. Instead, our clients work directly with two highly experienced MBAs. We also partner with a roster of qualified specialists to help meet the needs of our clients as required.

John Timm

President, Timmco Insurance

We engaged The Galvanizing Group’s services to work with our association’s charitable foundation on reworking the foundation’s brand and developing a new brand message. Ellen Galvin was extremely professional and easy to work with. She walked us through each step of the process to help us clarify and distill our key messages and foundation goals from many divergent ones, ultimately creating a brand document that we are using as our roadmap going forward. Ellen’s knowledge, experience and passion for her work made what can be a challenging process for an organization a much more pleasant and gratifying experience for us.
