With over a decade of experience in strategic public relations, project management and media relations, Aaron advises corporate and nonprofit clients on how to effectively communicate with diverse stakeholders, articulate their vision, and build brand awareness. He has worked with companies and organizations across industries and on a range of issues – from labor and human rights, to environmental sustainability, to diversity and inclusion – to tell compelling stories, cultivate media relationships and engage stakeholders to launch strategic public relations campaigns that change minds and drive results.

Prior to joining Cone, Aaron served as lead for corporate and investor communications at Ceres, which works with businesses and financial institutions to drive changes in capital markets to build a sustainable global economy. He also managed communications at the Fair Labor Association, where he led public relations and advocacy campaigns around high-profile assessments of labor conditions in electronics industry supply chains and in global cocoa production. In this role, he worked with companies across multiple sectors to communicate and market their sustainability efforts, assess consumer expectations for labor and human rights standards in retail products, and position company executives as thought leaders on sustainability.

He has advised other organizations on using effective communications to drive positive political, social and economic changes and the local, national and international levels. Aaron holds a Master’s Degree in Strategic Public Relations from the George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management in Washington, DC, where he now serves as Adjunct Associate Professor for Issues Management, Media Relations and Corporate Sustainability Communications.
