Jeanne Sullivan’s passion is looking for the hidden or untold story, helping clients get heard in an increasingly noisy marketplace – through the good times and the “Oh my God how am I gonna survive this” times. Drawing on more than 20 years of experience in strategic communications and media relations, she counsels clients in public relations, marketing, crisis communications, coaching, teambuilding, and communications services. She also implements programs, from coordinating major promotions & media missions and, producing broadcast segments to, escorting media tours and building press kits that make stories sing.
Sullivan specializes in travel and hospitality, with current clients such as the California Travel & Tourism Commission, San Jose Convention& Visitors Bureau and California’s Wine Institute. She also ran the highly regarded public relations team of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau for 13 years, which helped rebrand Miami into a hip luxury brand. Over the years she’s become a trusted source for media from the U.S., Canada, Asia, Europe and South America. She’s worked with major media outlets such as Good Morning America, CBS Early Show, Canada A.M., E! Entertainment, HBO, Today Show and their counterparts overseas.
She serves on the U.S. Travel Communications Council and is an active member of the Society of American Travel Writers and Bay Area Travel Writers. She was also a contributor to the first-ever “how to” book on travel PR, Travel and Tourism Public Relations: An Introductory Guide for Hospitality Managers (Published by Butterworth-Heinemann).
Sullivan has a B.S. in Public Relations from the University of Florida, and currently resides in the San Francisco Bay area.
