Experience You Can Trust

Mancuso Communications Strategies was formed in 2012 and is a sole-practitioner consulting firm that designs and delivers professional advocacy, public affairs and public relations services to businesses and non-profit organizations. I work with a close network of professional partners that I’ve developed over the last 25 years to deliver cross-discipline communications, advocacy and lobbying services tailored to the specific needs of my clients.

I formed Mancuso Communications Strategies after serving for three years as Regional Vice President of External Affairs for AT&T, where I managed all aspects of state and municipal legislative and regulatory affairs initiatives in Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Rhode Island for AT&T.

I previously spent a couple of years as Senior Vice President of VOX Global Mandate, a Washington, DC-based, bipartisan public affairs firm serving clients worldwide. At VOX I managed state, local government and community affairs initiatives in New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Rhode Island for VOX client AT&T.

Before that I spent a few years as Director of Public Affairs for AT&T managing state and local community affairs in New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.

I was Director of Corporate Marketing for WaterCove Networks, where I was responsible for worldwide corporate and product marketing, public relations and community affairs for a venture capital-backed wireless telecommunications infrastructure company enabling the profitable, mass-market deployment of personalized mobile data services in the United States and Europe. WaterCove was successfully acquired by Alcatel in 2004.

As a Director with Cunningham Communications, I managed the IBM account and developed and implemented strategic public relations programs for other hardware and software companies.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Communications from the State University of New York College at Buffalo.
