On May 8, 2023, the Public Relations Global Network (PRGN) elected Brad Kostka, president of Roopco, to serve as its treasurer for a two-year term. The appointment was announced last week at PRGN’s bi-annual member conference in Budapest, Hungary.
With 50+ member agencies globally, PRGN is one of the world’s largest networks of independent PR and communications agencies. As leaders in their respective regions, PRGN member agencies offer the “boots-on-the-ground” savvy of a local PR agency on an international scale.
“It’s been an honor to be part of such a powerful and engaged global PR network with talented colleagues and deep local connections all over the world—from Argentina and South Africa, to Japan and New Zealand,” says Kostka. “Through my involvement with PRGN, our agency has been able to make connections with PR leaders around the world, exchange the latest best practices, and offer our clients greater access to a wealth of international resources.”
Roopco became a member of PRGN in May 2021, after acquiring founding agency member and local PR agency Stevens Strategic Communications. Since then, Kostka has been actively involved with the organization in a variety of capacities. In his role as treasurer, he will provide general financial planning and reporting for the global organization.
