Emiliano Garcia is a junior account executive at The TASC Group. Although he might appear elusive at first glance, he shines through his industrious commitment to his clients, perceptive nature and potent writing skills, albeit prolix at times. Emiliano has had the invaluable opportunity to start his PR career at The TASC Group joining the team as an intern in 2022 and working with diverse and inspiring nonprofit organizations making an impact in his communities.
Emiliano graduated from The City of College of New York with a bachelor’s in communications, specializing in PR and advertising. He was the 2022 recipient of The TASC Group’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Scholarship for the summer semester winning a $2,500 scholarship and an internship at TASC.
Outside of the office, he leads a double life as a thrill seeker, going to concerts at least once a month to mosh. He is also an avid Nikon-only photographer because he cannot yet afford a Sony a7 III mirrorless camera.
What do you love most about working in public relations?
I love explaining what I do for a living to my friends and family over and over again. And that’s a good thing. “Jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” I enjoy immersing myself in different subject matters to channel my creativity and help people along the way too.
What has been one of your favorite campaigns to work on?
It’s definitely our ongoing asbestos litigation campaign against Johnson & Johnson and other Fortune 500 companies that are using bankruptcy to con dying victims and their families. It brings me great satisfaction to dig into court dockets and use their words against them.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Play acoustic and electric guitar, go on photoshoots, go to high-octane metal concerts, collect Star Wars figures (everything but the sequel trilogy) and watch horror movies.
What is your favorite part about living in New York City?
I love that there is always something new to explore.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Tacos – real ones.
