A. McKinley (Mack) Reynolds, III is the partner-in-charge of Sikich’s public relations services. Prior to joining Sikich, Reynolds served as CEO and founder of The Reynolds Communications Group, a general interest public relations firm guiding clients in a variety of industries, including professional services, public pensions, health care, technology and consumer products. Sikich acquired his company in 2013.
Mack is expert in most aspects of strategic marketing and communications for consumer products companies, professional service organizations and industrial products companies. He’s experienced in nearly every aspect of media — from self-published or sponsored digital media, to earned coverage in traditional media. His expertise includes corporate reputation management, investor relations, crisis communications, media relations (social and traditional), media training, trade show support and product launches. His work — and that of his colleagues — has been honored by many professional industry groups including Public Relations Society of America, Publicity Club of Chicago, Business Marketing Association and the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI). Before starting his company, he worked for more than 10 years at two international PR agencies, Burson-Marsteller and Porter Novelli.
In case you were wondering: Mack is an avid weekend athlete who enjoys helicopter skiing, high-level tennis, platform tennis and golf (OK, maybe not high-level golf). He founded and played keyboard for The T-Byrdz, one of the busiest dance and bar bands on Chicago’s North Shore. And he wrote and performed original songs at the weddings of his two daughters (Spencer: Meg is getting married on 4/4/20, but the song is done.)
