The ICN is a network of highly skilled professionals experienced in all areas of business communications and strategic planning.
It’s not the story,
but how you tell it.
Few public relations, marketing, or editorial teams in Michigan will have as much talent and experience as you’ll find within the ICN.
With a solid background in the automotive industry, promotion of big box and boutique retailers, law firms, mortgage and venture capital executive suites, regional shopping centers, downtown development authorities, large-scale annual events, non-profit programs, sponsorship evaluations, and charter schools, Angie welcomes past, present and future clients into her network.
In addition, she has managed media for international sailboat races, governmental affairs, community relations, specific and strategic communications with the ultimate goal of greater visibility, prominence in the marketplace and “expert witness” connections between clients and journalists.
“Nothing compares to the creativity expressed through words or images.”
Bob Tripolsky plies his wide range of expertise in public/media relations, editorial, marketing, social media, consulting, and photography to a diverse range of clients throughout the country. He’s someone with a solid ‘been there, done that’ appreciation for all phases of the communication process.
A lifelong automotive and motorsports enthusiast, he served as Detroit Editor of Mechanix Illustrated magazine. Later, as a creative executive at a Detroit-area agency, he developed sales training programs for Chevrolet and several non-auto clients.
The bulk of his career was spent in a variety of corporate and media communications managerial positions at General Motors.
Now as an independent practitioner, the opportunity to expand his reach is wide open. Most recently, his talents were recognized with a 2017 Spark! Award by the American Marketing Association for ‘Best Copyrighting.'
With over 12 years of professional audio and video experience, creative director Elijah is at the intersection of left and right-brained proficiency. He is adept at combining a thorough understanding of the science behind media production with his unique brand of creativity for a product that few can duplicate.
David has worked with a variety of clients in several industries, including public institutions, nonprofit organizations, and privately and publicly held businesses, from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. He has also served as pro bono PR counselor to several church and charitable organizations.
David is a PR generalist who has worked in most areas of the practice, including programming, opinion research, corporate identity, employee communications, investor relations and special events. His forte is media relations, including publicity and crisis communications. He has excellent personal communications skills.
Before becoming a PR counselor, David was a newspaper reporter and editor for more than a dozen years, serving as a reporter for two weekly newspapers; a copy editor, wire editor and assistant city editor for a daily newspaper; and an associate editor and managing editor for an international weekly trade newspaper.
Following journalism studies that brashly led to a reporter internship at a major daily newspaper, she branched into business and finance, features, magazines (winning some writing honors), and eventually a radio commentator stint while enduring the lengthy Detroit newspaper strike.
Known for a signature conversational writing style, she often inserts some quirky detail to bring humor, warmth or depth to her news, magazine, or even technical stories. Those often are based on some novel experiences (like learning to assemble a Corvette engine - which she didn't break). During strike days, she shared those tales with journalism students while lecturing at some local colleges, including her alma mater, Wayne State University in Detroit. She recently added a 2018 Automotive Heritage Award for car culture coverage.
A central focus beyond news writing and the key to her soul is classical/liturgical music that, with extensive formal training, still commands her time performing (including local musicals) and writing.
