Baker Public Relations Announces Launch of Public Affairs Practice

by | Feb 1, 2023

Baker Public Relations, a full-service communications firm and New York State-Certified Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE), announces the promotion of Geoff Redick to public affairs manager as the firm launches its new public affairs practice for 2023.

“Our experience and success on behalf of clients in the public affairs sector is well respected. Together, we have helped those clients win bond votes, mount successful election campaigns, earn public support for legislative priorities, garner attention from key policymakers and recruit volunteers,” said Baker Public Relations founder and CEO Megan Baker. “By formalizing a public affairs practice, we will bring all of those important public relations campaigns under one roof and offer expanded strategy capabilities to other clients who have similar priorities for the future.”

Redick, a Western New York native and former Capital Region media personality, brings more than a decade of on-air reporting experience to Baker Public Relations. Before joining the firm, Geoff worked as a political correspondent for ABC 6 News in Columbus, Ohio, and spent several years as a general assignment and part-time political reporter at the New York State Capitol and across the Capital Region.

Redick has a wealth of knowledge relating to securing the attention of local, regional and greater New York policymakers and news organizations, and brings this experience to bear for Baker Public Relations and its clients.

“I’m honored and energized to work on behalf of our clients who need to communicate with their elected officials, their voters and the larger community,” said Redick. “Our team has achieved some amazing accomplishments in the public affairs sector, and I know there are more to come as we approach critical legislative and election years at statehouses and nationally.”

Redick works with the growing client base in both Baker Public Relations’ headquarters in Albany, N.Y. and in its second location in Pittsburgh, Pa.
