BoardroomPR COO Don Silver has been elected to the board of directors of Florida Bulldog, a 501(c) (3) non-profit producing non-partisan investigative and public service reporting focused on the state of Florida.
“BoardroomPR has supported Florida Bulldog since its inception,” said Silver, co-leader of the public relations agency’s busy Crisis Management Practice Group. “Reporting staff cutbacks at major newspapers have made it challenging to cover local governments and the courts; that’s where Florida Bulldog shines,” Silver added.
Launched in 2009, Florida Bulldog (www.floridabulldog.org) -- formerly Broward Bulldog, is one of a burgeoning network of independent news outlets across the United States that produce non-partisan investigative and public service reporting. Unlike traditional media, which are funded by subscriptions and advertising, non-profit media must rely on contributions and donations for the bulk of their income.
Florida Bulldog’s stories are routinely carried by major media across the state and U.S.
Don Silver brings 30-plus years of successful public relations and marketing management experience working with the state’s top entrepreneurs, corporations, law firms, schools and non-profits on crisis planning, reputation management, public relations, marketing, community outreach, and online and search engine marketing. Prior to joining Boardroom in 1995, he held management positions with companies such as Duracell USA, Forster Manufacturing and Park & Sun Sports.
He is a frequent speaker, moderator and author on topics including how to handle a crisis in your business, designing a crisis plan and dealing with traditional and social media under fire. He is also active in the community where he has been chairman of the board and/or marketing-communications committee in organizations such as NAIOP, Legal Marketing Association, Legal Aid Service/Coast to Coast Legal Aid, Broward Partnership for the Homeless and Gold Coast Venture Capital Association. He is a native Floridian and received his BBA in Marketing from Florida Atlantic University.
