RR Public Relations Susie Riskind
Susie Riskind is a Chicago native. She earned a degree in communications from the University of Arizona before getting her feet wet in the media industry during a stint at The Steamboat Pilot, a local newspaper in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Riskind parlayed her time in the ad sales trenches into a gig at the Pioneer Press in Glenview, IL. It was there that she determined that PR was her calling, transitioning to an account executive position at Shureberger, Inc., a Chicago public relations firm representing cutting-edge restaurants and nightclubs. Next, Riskind assumed the role of executive director of the Chicago office at Wagstaff Worldwide, Inc., where she wooed new accounts and managed day-to-day activities. In July 2003, Riskind branched out on her own and spearheaded RRPR Inc. Over the last seven years it has thrived under her command, satisfying dozens of clients and counting.
