Andrew Frank Founder & President
KARV Communications is a strategic communications firm with a focus on corporate and financial communications, crisis management and public affairs.
In today’s world, you can live and work anywhere – but it is essential to have a home base. While New York City is our base, our business relationships stem throughout the largest cities in the United States and major capitals around the world. This allows us to offer integrated solutions on a global basis – across time zones.
We have established a relationship with a growing boutique communications firm in Los Angeles, in order to serve clients seamlessly across the country. In addition, we have other professional relationships in San Francisco, Denver, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, Boston, and elsewhere that we utilize for communications and public affairs support as needed.
KARV Communications has developed a deep set of relationships in Washington, D.C., where we deliver all aspects of lobbying and public affairs services on the federal level. We work with companies with diverse capabilities, tailoring to the individual needs of each client. These include some of the top government relations firms in the country.KARV has a global footprint. In Europe we have a long established relationship with a global PR firm based in Stockholm, with offices in Brussels, London and elsewhere; a specialty firm in Vienna; and a growing public affairs firm in Berlin.
In Asia, Africa and South America we have the ability to partner with companies across each region. Additionally, because of our strong relationships in the UAE, we can serve clients throughout the Middle East.
Our firm provides political and economic advice to companies and financial institutions looking abroad at investment opportunities and works closely with a premier Business Intelligence firm to assist our clients.
We offer our clients the relationships that we have cultivated among a broad spectrum of industries. These include: legal, management consultancy, lobbying, financial advising, technology, risk management, and other in-house or outside advisors. Through these relationships, KARV brings an unbiased, comprehensive approach to issues management and high-level strategic counsel for our clients. This is what ultimately allows us to provide insightful analysis, and conclusively actionable solutions. Many firms offer talent and experience; however, few offer talent, experience and worldwide relationships. This is what sets KARV Communications apart.
KARV has teamed up with an international business intelligence firm and an internet reputation firm, enabling us to offer clients custom-tailored communication strategies to reach all critical stakeholders.

Facebook’s slow and incomplete response to the revelations surrounding Cambridge Analytica’s access to and use of Facebook consumer data has sparked a fervor in both lawmakers and the public.

Under President Donald Trump, the United States’ stance toward China has been shifting in both tone and policy. Due in part to the Trump Administration’s nationalistic “America First” views, and in part to genuine concern about an increasingly authoritarian and increasingly ambitious China led by President Xi Jinping, these shifts have real implications for companies […]
Here are some observations about how quickly social media events can impact major global brands, and how corporations must carefully determine both how to respond, and who should offer the response.
