My name is Steve Radick and I’m the VP, Director of Public Relations at Brunner in Pittsburgh. I recently moved back home to Pittsburgh to join Brunner after a little more than two years at Cramer-Krasselt in Chicago where I served in a similar role.
I spent the first nine years of my career with government consulting firm, Booz Allen Hamilton, where I founded their Digital Strategy and Social Media practice.
Thanks to my government consulting, organizational communications, and change management background, I can bring a totally different perspective to public relations, one that’s focused on business goals and on relationships instead of on buzz and hype. Accordingly, one of my favorite sayings is that “it’s not about the technology, but what the technology enables.”
I was named one of PRNews’ 15 to Watch for in 2009 and was a contributing author to the Gov 2.0 book, “State of the eUnion, Government 2.0 and Onwards.“ I serve on the Advisory Boards for the SmartBrief on Social Media, Governingpeople.com, and SMCEDU, and am also an “Expert Blogger” for AIIM’s Enterprise 2.0 Community. Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, I grew up a die-hard Steelers and Penguins fan (you should see my black and gold basement!). After graduating from Bethany College in West Virginia in 2003, I joined Booz Allen Hamilton in Northern Virginia where I worked for nine years before moving to Chicago in 2012. After spending two-and-a-half years leading Cramer-Krasselt’s PR team, I have recently moved back home to Pittsburgh where I now lead the PR team at Brunner.
I’ve got three beautiful daughters under the age of five so if you see me napping in a corner or drinking by myself, you’ll know why!
