Bio

Steven Blinn is president and CEO of BlinnPR, a highly successful boutique public relations agency he opened in 1996. The agency was founded on the principal that great public relations occurs when senior level executives interact in a smaller, more creative environment. Since then, Steven and his agency have served such clients as the WWF, Mellon Financial, Dow Jones, the National Park Service, software vendor Protegrity, and the PCI Security Vendor Alliance, among others with everything from public relations to crisis communications to investor relations and social media. Prior to starting BlinnPR, Steven served as Director, Media Relations for Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI). At BMI, Mr. Blinn oversaw the public relations activities for BMI's two revenue producing departments -- Media and General Licensing, and spearheaded the organization's entrance into new media. Prior to his arrival at BMI, Steven worked at a number of local NYC PR firms, but got his start in the sports industry, having worked for the New York Islanders and the New Jersey Nets. A noted lecturer on public relations, Mr. Blinn appears regularly before industry and educational forums. Consistently graded by program directors as among the best speakers in the country, he has addressed The Public Relations Society of America, the New York Software Industry Association, the RSA Security conference, and audiences in New York and Boston and Fordham University. Mr. Blinn is regularly called upon for commentary by magazines and newspapers, and has been quoted in Inc. magazine, PRWeek, the Los Angeles Times and PR News, and his by-line has appeared in PRWeek and O'Dwyer's.
