MICHAEL PANAGAKO

Managing Partner / Growth & Strategy

STANDING / TRUE

A lively conversation is happening in a large conference room. A governor and a Fortune 500 CEO are among those sitting around the table. At the center of it all—calmly steering the conversation, making the case, standing true as always—is our very own Mike.

Twenty years ago, Mike was one of our clients. But he liked the KHJ experience so much, he decided to join the team. Nobody knows more about destination branding than he does, or has as much expertise in categories such as professional services, finance, engineering, construction and energy. With an abundance of knowledge, charm and true soulfulness, Mike can stand shoulder to shoulder with anyone.

In addition to his role crafting results-driven brand strategies for clients, Mike also oversees the agency’s growth and development into new markets and industries.
