Peter Smolowitz, APR, OMCP
Peter Smolowitz works at Eric Mower + Associates, helping B2B and B2C companies highlight their key messages to the right audiences – whether it’s by writing speeches, pitching earned media coverage for top attractions or building social media buzz for overlooked products. He’s developed content strategies that have generated news coverage, improved SEO rankings and boosted web traffic.
Pete is also part of EMA’s reputation management team, working with clients – ranging from Fortune 500 companies to private citizens thrust into the media spotlight – as they prepare for news interviews and navigate crises.
Before joining EMA in 2008, Smolowitz spent more than a dozen years as a newspaper reporter at The Charlotte Observer, The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Associated Press. He served as a business general assignment reporter, covered local governments, state capitols and presidential campaigns, and he went overseas to report on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
He’s a graduate of Syracuse University.
