About Winning Mark

The list of things to look for in political consulting isn’t a mystery.

Our Principals

mark_headshotMark Wiener brings nearly 30 years of successful campaign experience and leadership and an extraordinary winning record to his role as Principal and Founder of Winning Mark.

jeff_280_210For over 15 years, Jeff Lennan has been at the forefront of technology and the Web in political campaigns.

Battle-tested experience. Creativity matched with state of the art technology. A devotion to detail. A commitment to your cause, not just to your bankroll. A burning desire to win – and a record of doing just that. The attention of the principals, instead of being passed to the Intern of the Month Club.

Many firms can deliver some of these things. At Winning Mark, you get them all.

We win campaigns, causes and awards across the country – not by being the biggest, but by being the best. We don’t work with everyone – we are proudly progressive and limit the number of clients in any given political cycle. What does that mean for our clients? A passionate involvement in your campaign. Extraordinary service from the best in the business. Victory.

And we’re kind of fun to be around, too.

Take a look at our stuff. Then get in touch with us so we can show you how we can help you win.

Many thought it couldn’t be done… [The] election showed that Democrats could win in Boise… This was a real kick in the teeth to the Republican Party.

Trust for Public Land works to protect open spaces, natural areas and the environment in communities of a few thousand voters and in states covering millions. Winning Mark’s ability to help every level of campaign win really sets them apart. Not only do they deliver what most other firms just talk about, they do so with an incredible commitment to customer service.

Governor John Kitzhaber

Governor of the State of Oregon

The Libraries Yes! campaign is one of the most innovative approaches I’ve encountered in place-based advocacy.

Community Organizer 2.0

Debra Askanase, Engagement Strategist

Kitzhaber grabbed the Ticket’s attention…for an innovative Facebook campaign…It may, in the Ticket’s opinion, have a better chance of raising his electoral hopes than stumping with Obama.
