Mark Penn has been covered extensively in top tier publications — from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal. He is covered on topics from his business savvy and acquisitions with The Stagwell Group to his knowledge of American politics, polling, and beyond. Penn is a frequent guest on many TV programs – including Bloomberg Business, CNN, MSBC – as well as a go-to for interviews and commentary on polling, politics, trends, and the world of marketing.
