In the world of big-league Public Relations, power is often about influence and reach. In fascinating news today, apparently a public relations firm – 5wpr – was at the center of helping to settle the disputes between Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Police Unions of the NYPD.
According to The New York Daily News, Evgeny (Gene) Freidman hosted the mayor, NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins, as well as Ronn Torossian, CEO of 5WPR at “his ritzy Upper East Side home on Jan. 10. All four men attended the over three-hour long Saturday afternoon meeting.”
5wpr represents the GNYTA as well as the SBA.
