Director of Public Relations, Marketing & Tourism

Rob has worked at QEDC since 2011. His responsibilities include writing press releases and brochures, placing stories in media outlets, providing information to the public and news agencies, organizing and promoting events such as Queens Taste and Restaurant Week, and spearheading the Queens Tourism Council–because “It’s in Queens!”
