Atomic New York’s newest account director, Chad Giron, likes games. As a native Pittsburgher, he can’t help but build his autumn Sundays around Steelers games…and then there are the Penguins, too. (He doesn’t like to talk about the Pirates - we can’t blame him.) Chad has brought his considerable consumer tech, digital entertainment and public affairs game to Atomic New York - adding even more depth to Atomic’s already deep bench of tech PR pros.
Chad comes to Atomic with more than a decade of diverse communications experience. He started off at Edelman in Washington, DC (and was a White House intern before that) then moved on to the firm’s LA office. At Edelman Chad worked on a selection of blue chip clients including Toshiba, Warner Home Video and the Motion Picture Association of America. He then moved in-house as Director, Global Media for publicly-traded Syntax-Brillian corporation - better known for making Olevia-brand HDTVs and Vivitar digital cameras - and a marketing sponsorship with ESPN that Chad helped to manage.
Chad has a BA in History from Penn State and also studied in a Masters of Professional Writing program at the University of Southern California. He also claims to play a mean game of Trivial Pursuit. With his diversity of experience with major clients and across sectors - and his new media and digital content development skills - Chad’s a great addition to the growing team at Atomic New York.
