Ditto Public Relations, an agency that prioritizes happiness and results, announced the hire of three new senior leaders tasked with expanding Ditto’s services portfolio to include digital, content, and financial services. Stan Press joins as Chief Strategist of Digital & Content; Stephen Bronner is Vice President of Content and Strategy; and Doug Hesney is Senior Vice President leading institutional and financial services and strategy.
Stan Press, Chief Strategist of Digital & Content
Press leads Ditto’s Digital and Content team, which offers content creation and social media strategies to increase companies’ online awareness.
Press is a full-stack strategic marketer and startup advisor with 14 years of expertise across the video game industry, esports space, and tech brands. He’s been a panel moderator and speaker at high-profile industry conferences such as SXSW, GDC, CES, Cynopsis Esports Business Summit, and LA Games Conference. His combined expertise in digital marketing and strategic consulting translates to a deeper understanding of clients’ online awareness needs and how to creatively connect them with relevant audiences online.
“Ditto’s keen focus on truly understanding how to put clients in front of their target audiences means we can provide impactful digital and content services to deliver exceptional results online,” said Press. “This is critical for companies who recognize their audiences are consuming more information online and are looking to combine traditional public relations with a digital strategy.”
Stephen J. Bronner, Vice President of Content and Strategy
Bronner is a long-time journalist with more than 12 years experience as a reporter and editor, focusing on business, technology, local and national news. Most recently, he was news director at Entrepreneur.com, where he built the website’s contributor network and led its news team.
As a former reporter and editor, Bronner provides Ditto clients newsworthy and attention-grabbing content to generate awareness, build credibility, and educate key audiences.
“At Ditto, I can continue my passion for writing and work with dynamic and forward-thinking companies and thought leaders to craft stories and narratives,” Bronner said. “Rather than working for one media outlet, I get to interact with several outlets and even recommend other channels and approaches to developing and publishing content.”
Doug Hesney, Senior Vice President
An attorney by training, Hesney brings decades of experience advising asset and wealth managers, public/private companies, and professional services firms on their proactive communications strategies, capital markets transactions, and crisis communications. During his career, he has worked across a variety of industries, advising such companies as GlaxoSmithKline, Eaton Vance, Mazars USA, ARK Investments, and Russell Reynolds Associates, among others.
As a Senior Vice President at Ditto, Hesney’s expertise will help inform and grow the agency’s offerings within traditional financial and professional services — to include high-profile M&A transactions, IPOs, leveraged buyouts and other major capital markets events, as well as situations involving litigation or complex regulations.
“I am truly excited to join Ditto PR, because this is the right type of agency to meet the current moment,” said Hesney. “Trey has built an amazing team of expert communicators, through a culture that encourages achievement and excellence. With so many evolving issues confronting modern business, corporate reputation has never been more important. In this landscape, Ditto’s agility, expertise and innovative approach will prove essential.”
