About the Episode

You could say David Wachsman was in the right place at the right time: 2014 in New York with some of the early, influential founders. They needed a PR man and David delivered.

Going into the interview, I was curious how David was able to scale his PR expertise into a global team. How do they handle emergency situations like an exchange hack?

What about their relationships with press contacts?

How do they manage clients who may be directly or indirectly competing with each other?
