Nicole Rodrigues

HEADSHOT_Cole_closeNicole Rodrigues: CEO and Founder

Nicole is a seasoned public relations and social media marketing pro with 17+ years of experience under her belt. She’s developed and executed strategic campaigns for some of the biggest names in business such as Yahoo!, Dolby, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Sony PlayStation, Hulu, M-GO, Toon Hero, Demand Media, Heal, MobiTV, and the Oakland Raiders.

Nicole is a member of the Forbes Agency Council, an invitation-only community for executives in successful public relations, media strategy, creative and advertising agencies. She is one of eight hand-selected board members for The Organization of American Women in Public Relations (Women in PR USA), and is also a board member for Fremont College and Dock.

Nicole has been recognized as a leader in her industry, recently being named one of PR News’ Top 50 Game Changers in Public Relations, as well as Bulldog Reporter’s 2017 Gold Public Relations Professional of the Year, two honors that solidify her place as one of the leading PR professionals of her time. Additionally, she’s been recognized by the Stevie Awards as a top female executive in the public relations industry.

She’s taken her passion for public relations to new heights, creating PRfect Pitch and PRfect Pitch LIVE, a PR-focused show geared towards helping PR, marketing and media professionals step up their game by incorporating best practices and developing better relationships. She’s a contributor to Forbes, Working Mother Magazine, Adweek, PR News, and The HYPE Magazine, among others. She’s also been a guest on Women Entrepreneurs Radio, Today in Marketing, and Business Rockstars Radio as an expert in publicity and social media marketing.

In 2017, Nicole launched NRPR Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program: Make It Happen, which eventually spun off into her second company, Young Dreamers. Young Dreamers is an ongoing program that started with a speaking tour for Nicole, where she visited various Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area schools to talk with students about setting goals, building their personal brands, and persevering through life’s ups and downs.

Nicole takes great pride in being a former NFL cheerleader, spending many years cheering for the famed Oakland Raiders. She continues to cheer on her “new team” at NRPR and is a graduate from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations.
