Tadd A. Schwartz
President, Schwartz Media Strategies, Miami
Schwartz started his public relations firm in 2005. It now employs 15. “When I was younger, I spent a lot of time focused on sales: pitching our services, stories, ideas ... myself,” says Schwartz. “Over time, I’ve come to realize that the art of sales begins and ends with being a good listener.” The agency does pro bono work for the Lotus House, a shelter for women and children.
