Connie Ramos-Williams, president of CONRIC PR & Marketing, announced the promotion of Josh Milton to vice president of media relations. For the past three years, Milton has managed editorial and advertising media relations for CONRIC’s diverse portfolio of clientele in his role as marketing and media coordinator. He has more than 15 years of experience in the media industry.
“I have enjoyed a long career in the media industry, working in various roles throughout the years, but nothing has felt more gratifying than the work I do every day for our clients at CONRIC PR & Marketing,” Milton says. “For clients it’s business as usual, but internally I’ll be stepping up to take on more of a leadership role as our company continues to expand its staff and clientele.”
As vice president, Milton will continue to work directly with clients and the CONRIC team to develop, implement and manage award-winning editorial and advertising projects. He’ll keep building relationships with media throughout Southwest Florida, including online, print, radio and television outlets. Milton will connect with reporters and editors to share news and compelling stories and with advertising representatives to negotiate pricing and placement of media buys.
Milton has vast media experience in Southwest Florida and up and down the East Coast of the United States, previously serving as a production assistant at WINK-TV and producer at ABC-7, respectively. He also worked as a production assistant at WFTS-TV in Tampa, and as a producer at both WRIC-TV in Richmond, Virginia, and Capital News 9 in Albany, New York.
Milton serves on the leadership team of the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) and previously served on the media relations team for that organization. He’s the current FRPA education chairman and works with the FPRA student chapter at Florida Gulf Coast University.
“As CONRIC PR & Marketing continues to expand its staff and services in 2018, it will recognize and promote key staff to its executive team who will lead our company and clients to continued success in our second decade of service to the community,” says Ramos-Williams, CONRIC’s founder. “Josh Milton is being recognized for his dedication to excellence, service above self, positive attitude and leadership skills.”
