Burson-Marsteller’s Vic Beck Honored by the Public Relations Society of America
The Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) Boston chapter recently awarded Vic Beck, managing director at NEC member Burson-Marsteller, with the 2013 Diane Davis Beacon Award for his extraordinary work in the public relations industry. The organization recognized Beck for his work as a U.S. Navy Reserve Rear Admiral and as the Vice Chief of Information for the Department of the Navy, specifically citing his achievements managing the international news and public affairs team at the military’s headquarters during the surges in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. During his time in the Navy, Beck also served as the primary advisor and principal reserve liaison for the chief of information at the Pentagon and was charged with providing strategic communication counsel to the Navy leadership.
Currently, Beck leads Burson-Marsteller’s Defense and National Security Team and directs international public affairs, communication, and crisis management efforts. Beck draws on his 28 years of experience in the Navy to the benefit of his clients, including corporations, associations, and defense ministries, that hire Burson-Marsteller to manage public relations.
“It’s always nice to be recognized for your hard work, but I never expected recognition of this magnitude,” said Beck. “To be even mentioned alongside the previous distinguished recipients of the Diane Davis Beacon Award is an honor.”
Burson-Marsteller, a leading public relations and communications firm with a proven ability to communicate effectively with their most critical audiences and stakeholders, is proud to have retired U.S. Navy Reserve Rear Admiral Vic Beck leading their Defense and National Security Team. The New England Council congratulates Beck on this prestigious honor.
