Mark Braykovich

Executive Vice President

Mark combines knowledge gained from 20+ years in the media business with another 15 years in public relations to help clients craft communications plans. He works closely with a handful of clients, oversees media training and leads the firm’s Crisis Response Team. Crisis work is an area in which Mark particularly shines. “The stakes are high, as are emotions, and decisions must be made quickly and smartly,” he says. “The adrenaline rush is similar to what I experienced in the newspaper business as an editor and reporter.”

Before arriving at The Wilbert Group, Mark directed the PR efforts of Atlanta-based law firm Troutman Sanders, helping the firm gain extensive coverage of its expansion across the United States and in China. 

During his journalism career, Mark covered the rise and fall of companies as a business reporter and led teams of reporters and editors as a senior editor at newspapers in Ohio and Georgia. His last newspaper role was business editor of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution – where he worked alongside Caroline Wilbert.

A graduate of The Ohio State University, Mark likes cheering on the Buckeyes. He also enjoys golf, tennis, raising and breeding Koi, and playing with his grandchildren.
