Bob ZajacExecutive Vice President

Executive Vice President Bob Zajac is a runner and triathlete who has completed races from Pittsburgh to San Diego, including a half ironman in Florida. But he’s a full iron man in our book. The former president and founder of Highland PR, Bob grew the company from a gritty start-up into the largest public relations firm in Akron prior to the WhiteSpace acquisition. He has extensive experience in all facets of business, marketing and crisis communications and is fluent in a wide range of client environments, from rubber and aerospace to hospitals and libraries. Currently, his role at WhiteSpace involves guiding the PR team and developing new business, yet Bob still makes time for longstanding client relationships. He thrives on identifying the most interesting ways to accomplish his clients’ business goals. Bob currently serves on the boards for The Humane Society of Summit County and the Greater Akron Musical Association (GAMA). He spends his free time restoring vintage cars and motorcycles and hanging with his family, which includes two 19 pound cats. We’re secretly hoping Bob combines these passions with his early video production experience to create the most epic cat video ever.
