About Us

About Us

Devaney & Associates was created in 1991 to help brands generate change-making results.

We call Baltimore, Maryland our home, but we market products and services that matter to people around the world.

Our Difference

We bring you 3 things that most agencies tend to overlook.
And that can make all the difference in your marketing results.


84% of our team members have more than 10 years of experience—so we know what gets results and what doesn’t. Even your smallest details will be handled by seasoned pros.


Our marketing processes work because they are exhaustive. Our work ethic enables us to uncover ideas that get your audiences (even your staff) to rethink the way things have always been done.


The average agency-client relationship lasts just 3 years. Many of our clients have been with us for 5, 10, even 20+ years. We fight for our clients’ brands, because we believe in what they are building.

our people

It is estimated that the average agency-client relationship lasts just 3 years. At Devaney & Associates, many of our clients have been with us for 5, 10, even 20 years. That’s because Diane leads our agency with a simple guiding philosophy: if you start with good strategy, you’ll get good results. She’d love to meet you for coffee and share some of our success stories.

Media planning is an artform. Susan Casey is its master. She creates beautifully balanced strategies that reach your audience where they are—often in creative and emerging spaces that your competition hasn’t thought of. She trims the fat that you don’t need. And she negotiates deals that make ad reps cry uncle.
