Gabriel deGrood Bendt bolsters its public relations staff

In its continuing effort to provide its diverse client roster with a range of marketing services, Gabriel deGrood Bendt (GdB) has hired Dan Hauser as its new public relations director.

“We’re excited to have Dan on board to help existing clients and to help grow our public relations and social media business,” said Tom Gabriel, agency CEO. “He brings more than 20 years of corporate, agency and publishing experience.”

Most recently, Hauser served as senior communications consultant with Xcel Energy, the Minneapolis-based Fortune 500 utility. Prior to that, he created the public relations division for a suburban Minneapolis-based marketing agency and edited several international magazines.

“Though marketing tools continue to evolve, we’ve always been about providing our clients a broad range of disciplines within a streamlined team,” Gabriel said. “Dan’s unique experience and track record are a great fit.”
