With more than 40 years in the business, Steve Turnbo’s name is synonymous with public relations.
Name a project, a company, a good cause, or most any PR scenario and Steve has personal experience at handling it, and with success. From economic development activities and intelligence gathering for investors, to coaching clients on addressing a roomful of reporters and pitching story angles to media outlets, Steve’s done it all.
Steve was a partner in the firm for more than 25 years before being named chairman emeritus. Fortunately – for the firm and its clients – he’s still engaged, devoting his time to client work, business development and community endeavors.
