Josh Weiss
Josh Weiss served as the national Director of Public Relations for Rural/Metro Corporation, a leading national provider of private ambulance and fire protection services, and as Director of Communications and Public Affairs for American Traffic Solutions, a national leader in traffic safety cameras. For nearly 20 years he has worked with hundreds of external and internal clients including public and private companies in the healthcare and technology industries, government municipalities, police and fire Departments, and community organizations to build positive brands and manage reputations. In 2012 he launched his own firm, 10 to 1 Public Relations, based on the philosophy that it takes 10 good things to be said about a company to equal one bad. Because it’s only a matter of time before a negative story occurs (legitimate or false), it’s essential to build up a good will bank to protect and inoculate a company.
