Andrew King Joins Bastion Elevate as Director of Public Relations

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bastion Elevate, a full-service public relations and social media agency, has recently hired Andrew King as Director of Public Relations at the Orange County-based firm.

King brings over a decade of public relations success to his role at Bastion Elevate and has plans to provide strategy, media direction and account management to his role. A former journalist, King has an added level of media know-how and experience and a sharp eye for editorial nuances that will appeal to editors and producers in all industries.

In addition to his “First Act” as a newspaper journalist in New York and his home state of New Jersey, King has lead teams of varying sizes and specialties in a variety of industries, with a focus in real estate and financial services, and deep experience in healthcare. The team at Bastion Elevate is excited to be working with him.

“Andrew was selected for his leadership skills, ability to identify trending news stories for clients and the ability to provide very forward-thinking strategic approaches for all of our clients,” said Shana Starr, CEO of Bastion Elevate. “We need a strong team player in today’s environment and feel that Andrew is the perfect pick to help fuel our growth and strengthen our strategic approach to securing media coverage.”

King started his position mid-April.

“It was a baptism by fire to step into the middle of the well-oiled public relations machine that is Bastion Elevate, not to mention its dynamic parent company Bastion Collective,” said King, who quickly onboarded remotely amid a state-mandated stay-at-home order. “Though our communications have been conducted virtually so far, it has been exciting to meet and begin working with such wonderful co-workers and clients, alike. I could not be more optimistic about what the future will hold for all of us under the Bastion umbrella.”

Bastion Elevate is part of the Bastion Collective, a collection of service marketing agencies working together to establish the best global agency model. Bastion Collective puts clients and employees first, delivering only world-class work and has received numerous awards on work delivered.
