Padberg Consulting offers a diverse team of communication professionals with expertise in community relations, consensus building, media relations, information materials development, public process participation, government relations and coalition development.
Client expertise spanning 35 years includes work with corporations, organizations, associations, city and state government, not-for-profit organizations and labor.

- On behalf of the distilled spirits industry, Eileen implemented a national, grassroots effort to bring third party credibility to the industry’s effort to stop drunk driving and illegal underage alcohol use. She led a national field team, whose responsibilities included developing and implementing active community coalitions responsible for implementing local anti-drunk driving programs in 28 cities across the U.S.
- As part of a corporate community relations team, Eileen provided strategic planning for a major waste management corporation. She provided in-depth research in cities throughout California in an effort to win additional contracts.
- On behalf of the Army Corps of Engineers, a multi-state community relations program was developed and implemented over a four-year period. The program included PSA’s, newsletters to target audiences, and strategic community meetings.
