2013 PR People to Watch: Michael Gonda


Michael Gonda, Director, Corporate Issues & Crisis Management, Weber Shandwick

Michael Gonda has just over three years of experience in public relations and yet has risen from account executive to director of Weber Shandwick’s Corporate Issues and Crisis Management Practice. Needless to say, it’s been a big three years. A former reporter, Gonda’s preternatural calm is a rare and invaluable asset that has greatly contributed to his meteoric rise and has earned him universal accolades within the agency and at major industry awards. His drive, leadership and innovative thinking make him a key member of the agency’s crisis team, creating consistency on an international scope and leading key initiatives for the company, steering the way it positions crisis offerings in the digital age.

A senior member of the firm’s Corporate Issues Practice adds, “Michael has the talent and ability to think ‘three moves ahead’ with regard to media cycles, and as a result is able to provide his clients with messaging and strategies that protect their reputations when they are most vulnerable.”
