Serving Fortune 500 companies and savvy entrepreneurs, HensleyFontana principals have built an impressive and diverse client portfolio over the decades.

You’ll find familiar names such as Charlotte Motor Speedway, Palm Restaurant, Autobell® Car Wash, Thomas Built Buses, and Continental General Tire on our client roster.

Just as important are the entrepreneurs whose business models present unique challenges and specialized opportunities. Typically operating with leaner staffs, these companies have welcomed us to work as integral members of their internal management teams.

We are particularly proud of the specialty we have developed and nurtured over the years in the hospitality and tourism industry, working in partnership with dozens of restaurants, food, beverage, travel, and entertainment entities to achieve their public relations and marketing goals.
