Joe Finnigan - 2018

Joe’s work carried him to an executive vice-president’s position at Fleishman-Hillard where he oversaw blue ribbon clients Anheuser-Busch and Ralston Purina, work for which he received Silver Anvil Awards from the Public Relations Society of America. In the book he wrote following his retirement, Finnigan provided explicit details of the early stages of the nation’s beer wars and his part in them. During his 28 years at F-H, Joe also worked with Ameren/UE, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Granite City Steel, McDonnell Douglas/Boeing and the U.S. Space Foundation.
