Public Relations Director

CHRIS TRAHAN


What do you like most about what you do?

"As a senior PR practitioner with more than 20 years of experience, I have the experience and unique insight needed to ensure successful outcomes for our clients. I enjoy working with them to better understand strategic public relations; it’s importance and how it can be integrated within their brand to enhance existing marketing efforts. I’ve been on the client side myself at one time, so I have a rare insight into the processes needed to deliver a final product that best fits their personality."

"Having served as Director of Communications for a large urban school system, I have the knowledge and experience to work effectively with local and national media outlets by anticipating the needs of reporters, providing relevant information and follow-up to ensure successful outcomes. First-hand experience in crisis management and communications gives me the tools to help clients navigate and successfully communicate during these demanding times."  

 
So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
 and we never even know we have the key.
