Drew Wilson

Account Director, PR
A self-proclaimed sports fanatic, Drew puts his competitive nature to work for his clients. Each account becomes his new team, and each day is a new game. He is always up for a challenging media pitch, a complicated press release topic and a crisis situation. To him, there's nothing sweeter than the win of a great media placement.

Texas isn't Drew's native state, but he enjoys the weather and lack of state taxes. In his free time, Drew is either watching sports or trying to come up with the next Snuggie.

#1 on your bucket list?
I’ve navigated class four rapids, driven a NASCAR and jumped out of a perfectly good airplane…twice. Luckily for me, running with the bulls has finally crossed the Atlantic! My next adrenaline fix – avoid being gored in The Great Bull Run. 

Would you rather be a fly on the wall for Titanic or the first man on the moon? 
Let’s break this down. I have the option to be a national hero and the first of a very select group of people to step foot on the only astronomical object humans have ever been able to visit or…a fly on a sinking ship. Wow, that’s a tough one. 

Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? 
Define “eaten.” I’ve swallowed a goldfish. Does that count? 

Biggest accomplishment?
My master’s thesis was published in the Public Relations Society of America’s academic journal. Although I’m sure you stopped reading at “thesis,” I was also selected to present my research findings at the 2013 annual Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication conference. 

Would you rather be stuck in the Twilight Zone or Bermuda Triangle?
Although folklore does not provide definitive boundaries, the Bahamas are believed to be within the Bermuda Triangle. So, I’ll take relaxing on the beach, but being on a television show would be pretty exciting too.

- March 03, 2015

To me, March means one thing – MADNESS. For those of you who opt out of the friendly office pool and are too busy to be bothered by a shot at $1 billion, March Madness is the remarkably appropriate and enduring nickname for the annual men’s NCAA college basketball tournament.
