Founded in 2009 by Matt and Mercedes Schlapp, Cove Strategies is a boutique government and public relations firm headquartered in historic Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The decision to build a boutique firm stems from our belief in and dedication to building long-term and trusted relationships with our clients. The principals at Cove Strategies are accessible and fully engaged in our clients’ issues and priorities.
Each member of the Cove team brings a broad range of political and communications experience to the firm. We have worked on local, state and presidential campaigns, on Capitol Hill and at The White House, as well as in the non-profit and private sectors.
