Jonathan Bloom is founding partner and CEO of McGrath/Power Public Relations, an integrated communications agency with a profoundly diverse history of crafting communications with conviction for brands. Jon develops and directs over-arching strategy for clients and is regularly recognized for his strategies that drive outcomes in the form of increased sales, corporate acquisitions, competitive de-positioning and creating new market segments.
Three years ago, McGrath/Power was approached by an integrated medicinal cannabis company and took on the challenge to develop and implement all phases of external communications on their behalf. Since then, M/P has become a driving force behind cannabis communications. Jon has been featured in communications and cannabis trade pubs on the topic of cannabis PR and conceived the first study involving ex-NFL players to illustrate the pain relieving qualities of cannabis versus opioids.
Prior to joining M/P, Jon worked as a reporter for the San Jose Mercury News and the Associated Press.
