Dan Williamson

Senior Vice President

Dan’s professional life as a journalist and public relations spokesperson makes for an interesting combination of experiences. As a reporter, he doggedly pursued stories by asking probing questions of public figures in search of answers. As Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications for Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman, he served as a key policy advisor and chief communicator, or as his former self might say – the gatekeeper.

His ability to grasp the complexities surrounding an entity’s message and the media is what makes Dan an extraordinary asset to Werth’s team and the clients he counsels. He is a savvy communicator who understandably gets media relations, and revels in working through strategic public relations and public policy matters. He is no stranger to crisis communication and is at his professional best when scripting messages and coaching leaders.

Dan gives back and advocates for his city in many ways, one of which is serving on the Children’s Hunger Alliance Menu of Hope Steering Committee.
