Director, Earned Media

With 14 years of public relations experience, John has worked across a wide variety of industries, but his career is bookended by healthcare communications. He cut his teeth as a hospital communications intern and today represents clients such as RevSpring and Illinois Biotechnology Innovation Organization (iBIO) as part of The Harbinger Group. Here, he develops and executes strategic communications plans that consistently drive meaningful earned media coverage.

Beyond healthcare, he has represented and counseled Fortune 500 and other high-profile consumer and corporate clients. Most of his work has focused on executing integrated campaigns, launching communications initiatives and driving earned media results. John’s proudest career achievement was winning PRSA Chicago’s “Best Earned Media Relations” award in 2020.

Prior to joining The Harbinger Group, John served as senior account supervisor at Zeno Group, a Daniel J. Edelman company.
