Greg Surber, APR
VP, Research and Insights
Greg Surber, APR, is a public relations strategist through and through. He works on a variety of accounts, leading research projects and content strategies, but he also has extensive experience with more traditional PR efforts including national and trade media relations campaigns. Self-labeled as the “office nerd” though with a secret desire to be able to fly, he’s the rare breed of PR professional who is most at home pouring through white papers, digital analytics and trade publications to identify the big trends impacting his clients’ industries. In his spare time, Greg has taught PR writing, media relations and crisis management at Virginia Commonwealth University and served as a marketing instructor for University of Richmond’s Institute on Philanthropy. He also served on the executive board of PRSA Richmond for several years and received the chapter’s inaugural “Rising Star” award in 2010. Greg holds a master’s degree in public relations from Boston University and a bachelor’s degree in media arts and design from James Madison University. He lives in Richmond’s West End with his wife Stephanie, son Owen, dogs, Butters and Teddy and a very cool collection of vinyl albums.
