Xenophon Strategies is a Washington D.C. based PR company.

In a listing on its website of PR companies with a crisis management capability, the American Meat Institute described Xenophon Strategies as operating "a Food, Marketing and Hospitality Practice providing strategic communications services in the areas of crisis communications and public affairs. Xenophon's experienced team provides communications services related to food product recalls, food-borne illness, food security, workplace policy issues, allegations by activist organizations and public affairs campaigns designed to influence the federal government". [1]

In September 2004, O'Dwyer's PR Daily revealed that Xenophon Strategies had been appointed to handle PR for Rear Admiral William L. Schachte Jr., who - along with the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth - has attacked John Kerry over his war record. O'Dwyers PR Daily reported that Xenophon "shepherded Schachte through an interview with conservative columnist Bob Novak - whose own ties to the Swift Boat group have been questioned - and has issued a statement on behalf of the retired rear admiral which said he has never met either of the BR officials connected to Bush, had nothing to do with the contract and hasn't worked for BR in a couple of years".[2]

Personnel

Former staff include Chris Krese who, until late 2003, was senior vice-president at Xenophon and headed their Food, Marketing and Hospitality Practice.
