Hello, I’m Steve Kerekes. As a seasoned professional who hasn’t shied from controversial issues over a 30-year communications career in Washington, D.C., I have the experience, the skill sets and the fortitude to help achieve your organizational goals.
Strategic communications. Media relations outreach. Writing. Asking good questions and developing key messages. Prepping subject-matter experts for interviews. Third-party and social media engagement. Managing emerging issues. Most importantly, achieving positive results. I’m proud to say I excel at all of these.
Allow me to share just one example from the period I worked at a public affairs agency bearing the name of President Carter’s former press secretary, Jody Powell. The CEO of the company had sent Jody a note stating, “I want you to know that Steve Kerekes has done an outstanding job … He has generated an enormous amount of favorable press and has gotten our message into the press over and over again. He is relentless, smart and scrappy, and I certainly value him very highly.” In response to which Jody sent me a note stating, “Steve, I’ve never seen one of these before. What did you do? Whatever it was, do it again!”
If you have a communications need large or small, short term or on a continuing basis, I’d welcome the opportunity to speak with you to discuss how I can help. Give me a call or send me an e-mail. Let’s make success happen.
