Fineman PR has promoted Travis Taylor to executive vice president.
Since joining Fineman PR in 2012, Taylor has employed his extensive experience in corporate communications, media relations and training, crisis communications, community relations and public affairs to strengthen the agency’s operations and strategy, manage personnel and attract new clients. He has led a number of high-profile accounts, including several higher education institutions, government agencies, statewide and national nonprofits, and a myriad of corporate clients. In his new position, Taylor will be taking on a larger role in strategic planning and operations, staff development and client acquisition.
“With the growth of our agency, it is critical to plan ahead and strengthen our senior leadership team to help keep the firm moving forward,” said Michael Fineman, agency president. “Travis is a public relations dynamo who has proven to be a natural leader. He embodies all the qualities this agency represents. He has the vision, instincts and energy – hardly surprising in an enthusiastic rugby player – that are required to build on our success. I look forward to seeing the influence of his leadership in years to come.”
Before joining Fineman PR, Taylor served as vice president of Communications Pacific, Hawaii’s premier public relations firm and, like Fineman PR, a partner in IPREX, a global network of leading, independently owned communications agencies. That followed three years as senior communications advisor to Hawaii’s lieutenant governor.
Taylor serves on the marketing committee of Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco and the public policy committee of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce. In 2015, he received a Certificate of Honor for his involvement with Leadership San Francisco.
