SACRAMENTO – Randle Communications (Randle), Sacramento’s top-ranked public relations and public affairs firm, announced today that Tovey Giezentanner has joined the team as senior counselor. A U.S. Army veteran, Giezentanner comes to Randle with more than 20 years of strategic communications experience, including working in the administration of Governor Pete Wilson, United States Congress and as president and CEO of the Conaway Preservation Group, LLC for six years.
“We are thrilled to share the great news that Tovey is joining our talented team who continue to show the market what it takes to succeed in an evolving PR and PA landscape,” Jeff Randle, President and CEO of Randle Communications said. “Tovey is an exceptional strategist and focused on bringing the full potential of Randle’s storytelling expertise, public affairs know-how and creative spirit to our clients. The expansion of our leadership team will allow the firm to scale innovation and pursue opportunities critical to our clients and our firm’s future.”
As senior counselor, Giezentanner will provide strategic counsel and advocacy support to a wide range of Randle clients across the health care, real estate, water and infrastructure industries. Most recently, he led the 2018 launch of the Behavioral Health Action coalition, Randle’s signature health care initiative on behalf of the California Hospital Association. The coalition leveraged traditional and emerging communication tools in an initiative that culminated when behavioral health advocates met with then candidate for governor Gavin Newsom in October 2018. The campaign is designed to elevate behavioral health as a key policy issue for California’s elected leaders.
From 2001-2018, Giezentanner also ran his own public relations firm where he managed various long-term projects. His clients included Calpine Corporation, PacifiCare of California and the California Motor Car Dealers Association. He also led in the development and construction of two major multifamily apartment developments in San Francisco and his home town of Chico.
“Randle Communications is a real power player in the strategic public affairs arena in California and I’m excited to bring my experience to help support an already exceptional team,” Giezentanner said. “I’m proud to be part of the Randle Communications family and look forward to being part of a great team to elevate Randle’s client service.”
