Columbia College Dinner - PR and Marketing

Picture this: You and a few of your peers having an intimate conversation over dinner with a highly-accomplished alumnus from an industry of interest to you. A chance to have all of your burning questions answered without the pressure of a formal networking event.

This event, we welcome Elliot Sloane, CC '83.

Elliot is founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sloane & Company, a New York- based communications firm offering public relations, investor relations, corporate communications, public affairs and crisis counseling. The firm was recently awarded "Crisis Firm of the Year" by respected industry publication The Holmes Report.  Among his many account responsibilities, Elliot manages integrated financial communications programs for AT&T, Gaylord Entertainment, TiVo, American Express, the Bermuda International Business Association, New York Life, Cablevision and Boone Pickens, among others.

Before forming Sloane & Company, Elliot was Executive Vice President and General Manager of Edelman Financial Worldwide, the global financial relations practice of Edelman Public Relations Worldwide. In that capacity, he managed financial media relations, investor relations and merger & acquisitions practices serving a diverse group of clients.

Prior to joining Edelman, he was Vice President, Director of Financial Media Relations at Ruder Finn, where he managed the media and financial unit.

He has also worked at Morgen-Walke Associates, managing integrated investor and public relations programs for a number of emerging companies, and at Firemanís Fund Insurance Companies, where he was Manager of Public Relations and Corporate Events. He began his career at Burson-Marsteller, where he served in the Financial Relations group.

A graduate of Columbia College with a B.A. in English, Elliot is the recipient of two Silver Anvil Awards in investor relations for work performed on behalf of BellSouth Corporation and the Flight International Group. Elliot is a member of the Public Relations Society of America.
