Matthew Hiltzik, Hiltzik Strategies
President and CEO
Hiltzik is best known as a go-to crisis communicator for athletes in some form of distress or legal trouble, working with the likes of swimmer Ryan Lochte, football players Ray Rice and Manti Te’o, and baseball player Ryan Braun. But Hiltzik, an attorney by trade, holds a much broader background that also includes working on Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate campaign and with Hollywood titans such as Harvey Weinstein. Hiltzik continues to be in demand by a wide array of sports and entertainment organizations, and two years ago represented the owners of Triple Crown horse racing winner American Pharoah.
