OUR TEAM

DAVE WILSON

President & Executive Director

For nearly 30 years, Dave Wilson has been centered in the world of media and public policy.  As a former journalist and award-winning multimedia producer, Dave knows and understands the wide-ranging and ever-expanding world of advocacy, communications, media outreach, and coalition building to accomplish objectives.

Paired with his experience as a television commentator and a former Communications Director, Dave has unique insights into the development of strategies that impact public policy at the local, state and federal levels. Dave’s understanding of the psychology of messaging — in both coalition development and political strategy — allow him to bring a unique, competitive advantage in promoting ideas and viewpoints in today’s interactive, media-driven world of public relations, politics and public policy.

He and his wife, Rochelle, are parents of ten children, a daughter-in-law, and son-in-law — all of whom Dave often references to explain that no two audiences are alike and that understanding your mission, your messaging and your strategy are vital.
