2014 Rising PR Stars: Colin Jordan

Colin Jordan, Senior Manager Corporate Communications, Egnyte 

While Colin could be seen as a jack-of-all trades, excelling in social media, analyst relations, events and crisis communications, where he has really proven bright beyond his years is in media relations. He has an innate ability to think on both macro and micro levels enabling him to uniquely engage with C-suite and veteran journalists.

Colin tackled one of the biggest issues of the year — the fallout of faith in cyber security after the Snowden leaks — for Egnyte, an online file storage service, whom by nature of their industry could be seen as guilty by association along with the likes of Google and Dropbox. But by utilizing his media connections and skills he was able to shift the conversation and position Egnyte as a defender of public Internet security with a unique "PRISM Proof" product.
