Former NASCAR Exec Ramsey Poston To Open His Own Crisis Communications Firm
Former NASCAR Managing Dir of Communications RAMSEY POSTON is opening his own crisis communications firm. Tuckahoe Strategies, which will be based in Maryland, will offer strategic counseling, crisis management and legal communications services. Poston has formed strategic alliances with Levick Strategic Communications and Dominion Strategies, two DC-based communication agencies. He will continue to work with NASCAR and plans to work with four other clients, which will leave room to take on crisis management and emergency consulting opportunities as they emerge. Poston said, “The overall vision is to be the go-to agency for clients, especially those in sports, that have one of three needs. One is to work with companies to improve overall communications. Two, on the crisis management side, is to help companies be prepared for crises before they happen. Three is I can come in and work with clients and assist clients with crises on the ground.” Poston, a graduate of Roger Williams University, was a Senior VP at the communications firm Powell Tate before joining NASCAR in '04. He left the sanctioning body earlier this year after eight years of work.
