Before founding his own firm in December 1992, Ron spent five years as senior vice president at a Boston-based financial public relations agency, where he played a key role in growing the firm into one of the dominant corporate communications resources for New England-based companies. Prior to that, Ron was director of public relations at a fast-growing Boston-based advertising agency that was turning away public relations business from its ad clients because the agency had no in-house PR expertise. Ron was recruited by the ad agency to develop strategies and PR programs as a one-person department for the ad agency's clients.
Previously, Ron was director of public relations for Perkins School for the Blind (Helen Keller’s alma mater); and a marketing services writer with one of the U.S.’s largest insurance companies, Sun Life of Canada. Early in his professional career, Ron was a newspaper reporter with the Marlborough (Mass.) Enterprise-Sun, and a high school English teacher at Westford (Mass.) Academy. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Boston University (1972); a master’s degree at Framingham State College (1977); and was an MBA candidate at Babson College (1990-91).
