“I have known John Buckman for many years, both through the information industry and his international marketing work for us in the UK. John is a very talented marketing and communications professional with great insight into what motivates people. His writing and overall communications skills are excellent -- always on the mark and accessible. He has a great mind, and is a joy to have on the team.

“John Buckman did great work for the Pittsburgh Regional Indicators, an initiative to produce better information for public decision making that I co-founded with former Secretary of the Treasury Paul O’Neill and others. John was able to engage thought leaders in our area through excellent communications programming. He helped us develop an e-mail communications and networking service that has been a powerful catalyst for expanding awareness. He also helped with our Web site, handled media relations and generated editorial coverage in print, the broadcast media and the blogosphere. John also organized speaking opportunities, including inviting a local professional association to sponsor a very successful briefing Paul and I did for hundreds of attendees. I’ve spent most of my working life as a newspaperman and have had dealings with any number of communications and PR people over the years. John Buckman is among the very best and I can recommend him highly.”

“John is a superb marketer, writer and strategic thinker with vast experience in the electronic publishing and financial services arenas. I've always been impressed with the way he digs for a story, pulls out the gems, and articulates the core message with such passion and clarity. John is a quick study on a breadth of topics and issues and takes a 'no fear' approach to working the press and getting his client's story out -- front and center. He has been responsible for the increased visibility and success of so many companies, I wouldn't know where to begin. John would be a valuable asset to any enterprise that needs a nuanced thinker and creative spark who understands the vagaries of markets, audiences, positions, and perceptions. He is a veritable buzz-creating machine!”

I appreciate especially John's integrity, he's a person who delivers what he promises and doesn't over-promise even as he reaches for high goals.”
