The story of Polished Nichols

Polished (adj.)

Nichols (n.)

You know it’s a sign when multiple clients call you “polished.”  They tell you that you are skillful and buttoned up with all your work details.  

You run with it.  And that’s what we did!  

With the maiden name Nichols, we put the two together and Polished Nichols, LLC was formed.

Boasting more than 40 years of experience in strategic branding, marketing, public relations, and event management, we share our talents and expertise with our clients to achieve their goals.
