Branding to Your Benefit

Steve Kaufman designed his first brochure for a major U.S. Senate campaign at age 14. He graduated from Northwestern University’s school of journalism and served on active-duty five years as a Navy surface warfare and public affairs officer, winning five Navy-wide awards for his public relations achievements.

After a background in TV and newspaper reporting, political campaign staff work, and telemarketing, Steve started his public relations practice April Fools’ Day 1992—go figure! Within a few years, SJK•PR was ranked in Jacksonville’s Top 20 PR and marketing firms by the Jacksonville Business Journal. Clients now span the spectrum of the manufacturing, non-profit and service industries.

He was selected the 1999 South Council Small Business Leader of the Year and the 2011 Arlington Council Small Business Leader of the Year.

Steve also recently completed 27 years in the U.S. Navy Reserve. In 2009, he was recalled to 15 month’s active-duty, during which he led U.S. negotiations with the governments of Kazakhstan and Tajikistan to grow the northern supply routes into Afghanistan.

He’s married to Ms. Polly App and they have one daughter, Lindsay… who’s kept him wrapped around her pinky since she was born.

Steve will be discussing Branding to Your Benefit.

Featured Speaker

As a young patrol officer he rode “a beat” in downtown Jacksonville, where he developed relationships with citizens and business leaders, believing early in his professional life that connecting with citizens was very important to the success of what Agency is trying to accomplish: reducing and solving crime together with citizens who are engaged with their officers.

He quickly developed a reputation as a police officer who cares about people and likes to work with them to solve their public safety issues.

Sheriff Williams earned his way up the ranks to the appointed position of Director of Investigations and Homeland Security. Through his leadership, strengthening partnerships with federal law enforcement agencies, JSO deploys some of the most advanced technology available in the battle against domestic terrorism, the drug trade, and organized crime.
