I have worked with Jack for over 10 years. He is committed, professional, and the best in the business. Jack has represented projects for a number of developers I’ve worked with and he does a phenomenal job! I can count on him to present the right opportunities for the maximum exposure. He is well-connected to the media, stays current in the industry, and his writing skills are right on target.

Jack and his team consistently delivered the best editorial stories in key trade and consumer publications for my projects. I have worked with many public relations firms during my 20-year marketing career, but none ever delivered the quantity or quality of feature stories that Jack’s team delivered. He was fantastic at big-picture strategy. He was great at grass-roots efforts. But most importantly, he was great and at reacting quickly to new opportunities that presented themselves. I’d jump at the chance to hire Jack Skelley again!

For many years, Jack Skelley has been my colleague on the Board of Advisors, ULI’s Los Angeles District Council, where he chairs the Communications Committee. He is a real PR and marketing pro. Through his strong and deep industry and media connections he has brought significant attention to the work of ULI. His media placements have included numerous articles in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal and real estate industry publications, influential blogs and other electronic media. At the strategic and marketing levels, Jack also creates branding and positioning language for ULI-LA programs.

Working with Jack Skelley was a turning point in my career as a writer. As Executive Editor of the Los Angeles Downtown News, his skill, expertise and sheer talent inspired me to push my writing to an entirely new level. He helped me find my voice in a way that was both encouraging yet intentionally challenging. Every piece of writing Jack produced carried with it a ‘ring’ and served as a benchmark for the writers around him. Most of us have to hammer at a craft Jack makes look easy. Jack is a lifelong learner whose writing is informed by a very full life mirroring his insatiable passion for literature, culture, business and people. As a manager and leader, Jack is an asset to any team. As a writer and editor, he’s a one-of-a-kind catch.
