A Pittsburgh, PA native, Jeff’s career has included stops at well-known advertising agencies such as Mullen and Brunner, leading public relations efforts for brands like Zippo, 84 Lumber, Pennsylvania Tourism and Economic Development among others. His 20-year career also includes client-side experience with Boston Children’s Hospital and Orient-Express Hotels (now Belmond).
Today, Jeff is a Vice President at Charleston, SC-based Rawle Murdy, leading the agency’s public relations and social media group for clients ranging from hospitality and tourism to public entities, real estate and more. While remaining true to his traditional public relations background, Jeff was an early advocate for the role of social media and content marketing within the marketing mix and continues to provide clients with strategic, innovative thinking within this ever-changing universe.
Beyond the office, Jeff enjoys traveling with his wife and two daughters, cheering on his hometown sports teams and carving out time to chase trout in the mountain towns of western North Carolina.
