Reporting to president Steven Rubenstein, Policano will handle clients in the healthcare, nonprofit and real estate categories.

Most recently, Policano was chief public information officer for Queens district attorney Melinda Katz.

His labor background comes from top PR jobs at the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Workers in DC, its largest local District Council 37 in New York and the United Federation of Teachers.

Policano also served as senior VP-communications at Phoenix House, director of communications at NYC’s City Council and reporter at the Daily News and New York Post.

Steven Rubenstein said his firm has been a big fan of Policano over the years and he’s glad that he has rejoined the team.

“His talent, experience, and deep roots working in New York’s public, civic and nonprofit spaces, as well as in journalism, will provide tremendous value to our firm and our clients as we help them navigate challenges and opportunities for their businesses,” he said.
