PR Director, Atlona Technologies
Joshua Carlson has gone beyond the call of PR directors helping to guide a “little accessories company that could” to the top of the heap. He takes his work personally and passionately, developing relationships with the press. Josh conceptualized splitting Atlona’s products line, to help tailor marketing and PR strategies based on Atlona’s core competencies. This act effectively allowed Atlona to segregate and deliver qualified PR content to press, increasing Atlona coverage tenfold. His talent for turning what most people would not even take time to consider into exciting content is unmatched in peers across this entire industry. www.atlona.com
