We’re Expanding Our Reach With
Larger Albany Office
Posted on: August 18, 2011
We’re pleased to announce that our firm is growing again. In September, we will move our Albany offices into larger quarters in the historic Harmanus Bleecker Library building at the corner of Dove Street and Washington Avenue, not far from the Capitol.
Glens Falls will continue to be our home base, as it has been since the firm began in 1988, but our growing roster of Capital Region clients makes this the right time to expand our presence to the south.
We are grateful to the many loyal clients who entrust us with their strategic communications, media relations, marketing and issue advocacy work. They — and the terrific team of professionals here — have made this move possible.
The news release announcing our expansion can be found below.
Thank you for your friendship and continued support.
Mark Behan, President and Founder

Behan, president of Behan Communications.
“I congratulate Behan Communications on their expansion in the City of Albany, and look forward to their continued commitment to our economic vitality,” Albany Mayor Gerald D.
