The promotion of Greiwe follows Rogers & Cowan/PMK’s continuing evolution over the last several years, from a PR and media relations firm, into a fully integrated marketing and communications agency. “In his three years at Rogers & Cowan, Craig has developed comprehensive and award-winning solutions in digital, content, creative and consumer product, and service marketing,” said Mark Owens, CEO, Rogers & Cowan/PMK. “He has done so with innovative strategies that help our clients to transform their business.

This isn’t about marketing, PR, content, or operations as standalone practices, it is about all of those efforts working together. The days of siloed consultancies and niche agencies are limited, and Rogers & Cowan/PMK is leading that revolution with our clients and expanded capabilities.” As CSTO, Rogers & Cowan/PMK, Greiwe will be responsible for overarching strategy for some of the agency’s latest and largest brand clients. Greiwe will lead a team that not only develops disruptive business-focused solutions, but also implements and executes those plans in marketing, PR, experiential events, partnerships, and more. Greiwe’s senior staff will include Michael Fein, Senior Vice President of Strategic Insights and Analytics, Courtney Allen, Vice President of Strategy and Transformation, and Tara Schroetter, Sr. Director, Greenhouse. Recent examples of work by Greiwe and his team include Verizon’s groundbreaking immersive projection mapping of the United Nations during the Climate Action Summit and General Assembly opening, facilitating Kobe Bryant‘s transformation from superstar athlete to Oscar-winning content creator and story teller for Dear Basketball, and Verizon Media’s increasing focus on the intersection of empathetic content and storytelling with technology, such as the short film Earth and the documentary 5B.
