About Us

Positive opinion drives everything we do.

Global-5 is a full-service public relations and marketing firm with more than 25 years of experience exceeding client expectations in transportation, construction, automotive, government and emerging technologies such as connected and autonomous vehicles.

We build lasting relationships with our local, national and international clients by listening intently to understand their needs so that we can design, build, launch and maintain successful public relations and marketing programs that engage target audiences, solve business problems and achieve our clients’ goals and objectives.

From our office in Central Florida, we provide public relations, marketing, creative, digital and research & strategic services all under one roof, which saves time and money for our clients.

From our experience working with city, county, state, regional, federal and international transportation agencies, Global-5 is skilled at transferring organizational knowledge, processes and best practices from the top of the pyramid to the base, and then back up again.

Our Culture & Core Values

Global-5 employees seek challenging assignments and the opportunity to bring first- and best-in-the-nation results to their clients.  Our innovative solutions are based on research and in-depth transportation industry knowledge.  We are always looking for better ways to do things and continuous process improvement is part of our daily adventure.

Innovation based on research

Creating innovative solutions is our daily mission and we start that process from a baseline of knowledge and understanding.

Teamwork and brainstorming

The energy and great ideas that come from teamwork and brainstorming allow us to move projects to a whole new level of excellence.

Always learning and growing

Because many of us started our careers as journalists, we are innately curious and feel the mark of a great day is one in which we’ve learned something new. Then we find ways to apply our new discovery in ways that help our clients.

Diversity and mutual respect

The many diverse outlooks reflected in our company, our community and our clients allows us all to grow in our understanding of the most important issues of the day.

Excellent projects and customer care

We value excellence and know our clients do, too. And that’s our commitment from beginning to end on everything we do.

Integrity and the Golden Rule

We treat people the way we like to be treated, with honesty, fairness and mutual respect.

Leadership

What really sets Global-5 apart is our diverse team of experienced professionals who work collaboratively to provide subject-matter and technical expertise in the industries where we work. This reduces the learning curve on new projects and allows us to respond quickly by combining the best traditional communications and marketing processes with innovative digital technologies for delivering effective multiplatform solutions.

We also can scale our project teams to meet the sizeable demands of megaprojects such as multi-year construction of roads, bridges and the infrastructure.
