Our Mission

In August of 2013, Gillen Group Principal and Founder, Cathy Hickey Gillen was featured in this U.S. Department of Transportation video series called Women in Transportation that was created to encourage more young women to join the field of transportation.

The Gillen Group is a boutique public relations firm that specializes in transportation safety communications and was founded by our principal, Cathy Hickey Gillen, who has over 24 years of experience in the field. In the past 12 years as an independent consultant, she has worked with dozens of transportation safety clients such as the Roadway Safety Foundation, Operation Lifesaver, Inc., and National Organizations for Youth Safety to create and promote lifesaving educational campaigns that help prevent crashes, injuries and fatalities on our nation’s highways.

Her talented team of employees and consultants all have experience in, as well as a strong, personal dedication to traffic safety. They work closely with non-profits, NGOs, businesses, government agencies and the media to successfully share transportation messages across the country.

The Gillen Group offers three core services in-house, including:
