Meet Brad Kostka

An avid hockey fan, Brad enjoys coaching his son’s travel hockey team in his spare time.

Brad Kostka leads agency management and business development at Roopco. For nearly three decades, he has provided strategic communication counsel to organizations ranging from global, publicly traded corporations to local startups. His expertise includes brand strategy, integrated communications, PR, investor relations, digital marketing and corporate event planning.

Brad has served on the board for ACG Cleveland, where he led its branding function, and is past president of the Cleveland chapters of the Public Relations Society of America and International Association of Business Communicators. In addition, he serves on the boards for local non-profits Beech Brook and America SCORES Cleveland.

Before joining Roopco in 1996, Brad held public relations and event management positions with the U.S. Senior Open Golf Championship, Cleveland Metroparks and the Office of Alumni Relations at Ohio University. He earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism and an MBA from Baldwin Wallace University.

“As a huge hockey fan, I often consider the advice hall-of-famer Wayne Gretzky received from his father: ‘Go to where the puck is going, not where it has been.’ In our business, it’s a reminder to not only deliver on our clients’ immediate needs, but to also help them identify opportunities that lie ahead.”
