Brian Akre

I have an extensive background in corporate communications and journalism, including 12 years with two of the world’s largest, most global corporations. That was proceeded by 16 years with the world’s largest news-gathering organization, I have provided strategic counsel to four CEOs and dozens of other senior executives on four continents. I understand how intelligent communications can support and help achieve business objectives. Beyond executive communications and media relations, I have experience in virtually all other aspects of communications, including change management, employee, financial, legal, human resources/labor, manufacturing, social media, philanthropy, sustainability and public policy. My strongest skills are writing and explaining, which are at the heart of all good communications. My most important roles are dad, husband, brother and son. I have three great children, who are a constant source of joy, love, entertainment, frustration and education.
