Our very own Veronica Skelton, co-founder and managing director of Concept Communications, was recognized as a top 100 San Francisco Public Relations Professional by Sparkah.com! Congrats, Veronica!
Sparkah.com selected its top 100 pros as folks who not only understand the value of traditional media relations but also have great relationships with key bloggers and influencers across the Web. Veronica’s extensive background in technology and years of experience developing relationships with all types of media, made her an obvious choice for Sparkah.com.
A little more about Veronica’s background and why she’s made such a name for herself in San Francisco:
Veronica has a unique mixture of journalism, in-house, agency, consulting, and global business experience. She has managed the PR needs of organizations throughout the world, from Fortune 100 companies to the smallest of start-ups. Based in San Francisco and a native of ‘The City,’ Veronica has been in the PR industry for nearly two decades. Her roots as an award-winning college journalist led her into the PR world, and she is known for bringing high enthusiasm, integrity, good instincts and resourcefulness to her work ever since. Her experience backpacking around the world – twice – has also given her a unique perspective on people, the media, and the global economy. Both a former Canadian and a former collegiate water polo goalie, Veronica combines a socialistic, team-oriented attitude with a tinge of toughness (she’s had her nose broken after all!)
A co-founder of Concept, Veronica heads up the Gracenote account. Past Concept client works includes DivX, TripIt, TravelPost, Transpera, HomePages, AllBusiness, UpTake, MetroLyrics, Praized Media and FrameFree. She has held agency positions with Porter Novelli in Los Angeles, and Wilson McHenry Company in the Bay Area, and held an in-house corporate communications position at Intuit. Veronica is formerly the Vice President of the Public Relations Society of America – San Francisco Chapter, and was recently the Publicity Chair for INFORUM in San Francisco, the division of The Commonwealth Club for people in their 20’s and 30’s.
