Eric O’Brien

Eric began with our firm in 1999 and has been on a steady career climb ever since; in fact, he was named partner in 2012. He currently leads the Delta Air Lines account, helping the airline effectively communicate with employees, the media and its millions of SkyMiles members. As a native Atlantan with a well-stamped passport, Eric is also proud to serve on the board of the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. He’s also a member of the Leadership Atlanta Class of 2018.

Over the years he has produced a wide portfolio of work, covering marketing communications, strategic planning, crisis counseling, advertising and event management. His counsel and media relations skills have landed clients in hundreds of outlets, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times.

A cum laude graduate of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Eric holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Sociology. As a volunteer alumni interviewer, he assists the Georgetown Admissions program in selecting incoming students. When he was a student there he was a five-time All American in cross-country, indoor and outdoor track, and was named to the prestigious GTE Academic All-American team. He competed in the 1996 U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials in the 1,500 meters and currently serves as the board chairman of the DeKalb County Express Youth Track Club. Eric claims to be one of the few people to have ever run the equivalent of a sub four-minute mile, made a hole-in-one and bowled a score over 200. We’ll leave the verification up to Guinness, but we do appreciate his competitive, hard-working spirit. Eric lives in Morningside with his wife, Emily, and their three young children. In his spare time, he enjoys golf, running, movies, and history, which is easily discernible if you get a peek at his bookshelf.
