With over 20 years of experience, ranging from the newspaper industry and politics to high-pressure PR campaigns and crisis management, Sias has an extensive background he can leverage for clients. He has advised publicly traded companies on strategic media and marketing campaigns, helped launch numerous startups, managed statewide and national media tours, directed the communications programs of multiple industry conferences, established countless industry officials as leading national experts and guided companies through serious crises. Prior to entering the PR field, Sias served as a political and communications analyst in a state legislature, a campaign aide for state legislative races and a crime and government reporter for a daily newspaper.
The key to publicity is knowing the media inside and out, and having the right connections to call on. We work closely with our contacts in print, broadcast and radio to build national platforms for our clients that will outmaneuver their competitors and survive a changing news cycle. These are just a few of the news outlets our clients appear in.
