Meet The Team
Oliver Picher helps businesses tell their story. Oliver’s varied career has given him a journalist’s instinct for a good news story, a PR person’s drive to engage the right audience, and a business person’s focus on driving the business.
As Editor-in-Chief, Oliver works with clients to create targeted and compelling original content that reaches and engages potential customers and partners. A senior executive with more than 20 years’ experience in public relations in the high tech, professional services, and human resource consulting fields, Oliver understands how enhancing an organization’s visibility, image, and influence can drive the achievement of its strategic goals.
Prior to joining Gregory FCA, Oliver worked as an independent content strategist and communications consultant, helping companies make themselves more visible and attract more business. Oliver also worked closely with Basecamp Business and the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technology (PACT) to create a ground-breaking business events calendar “network” targeted at entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and professionals.
