Pendered Consulting was formed in 2008 to advocate for specific points of view in policy discussions in Metro Atlanta and Georgia.

The initial service portfolio – strategic counsel and facilitation of meetings with decision makers and media – was quickly expanded to include writing services for internal and external audiences; campaign messaging; lobbying services as the state of Georgia; and independent data-based research.

David Pendered formed the firm after a career as a print journalist with a major newspaper in Atlanta, Ga. Expertise includes state and local government; economic development; public branding; and intimate knowledge of regional relationships.

Pendered continues to work as an independent journalist who specializes in urban affairs. Pendered writes regularly for an Atlanta-based website oriented to business and civic affairs. His works have appeared in national publications and one book on Atlanta’s planning history.
