about us

The Athena Group was founded in 1990 by Mary G. Gotschall, whose goal was to deliver exceptional marketing communications and public relations services to clients in a cost-effective manner.

A native of the Washington, DC area, Gotschall holds a BA from Harvard and an MBA from Columbia, and won a Rotary Scholarship to study economics and political science at the Universite Libre de Bruxelles in Brussels, Belgium. She also served as an intern at the European Union (EU) Press Office in London and worked as a financial journalist on Wall Street, prior to obtaining her MBA. Gotschall’s articles about business and investing have appeared in such top venues as Bloomberg News, The Washington Post, Money Magazine’s award-winning website, and Working Woman. In addition, Gotschall has co-authored two books on business and investing. For six years, she served on the Board of Directors of the World Affairs Council of Washington, DC.

The Athena Group frequently engages in collaborations with other companies on client engagements, bringing together senior talent from different quarters. MC Strategy, Inc. (www.mcstrategy.com) is one such partner. Founded by Mary-Claire Burick, a seasoned communications executive, MC Strategy is a communications and management consulting firm that provides organizations with a strategy-based, creative blend of external and internal communications, marketing and management services.
