Together, founders Chandra and Chris Hosek have more than 40 years of experience in communications
Chandra Hosek, Principal and Co-founder
Chandra has 20+ years of experience delivering high-impact communications and writing programs for a variety of clients. Her background is in technology public relations, which is a plus when nearly every organization is a technology company these days. She helps companies connect with their target audiences in authentic, meaningful ways.
Chandra combines big-picture thinking with a fervent emphasis on building awareness via substance, not hype. She enjoys delving into what makes leaders and their companies unique and telling their stories backed up by facts and anecdotes that will resonate with an organization’s key influencers, customers, and prospects.
Most recently, Chandra served as director of corporate communications for ScienceLogic, where she positioned the company as one to watch in IT operations and cloud computing management. Prior to ScienceLogic, she managed corporate communications for LifeSize, the third largest provider of high-definition video conferencing equipment and services for businesses.
Previously, Chandra managed national and international public relations for software provider NetQoS. She helped raise its visibility from a start-up to an established, important player in the network performance management space. NetQoS became one of the fastest growing technology companies in the U.S., with more than half of the Fortune 100 as customers and 31 sequential quarters of double digit revenue growth. This success led CA Technologies to acquire the company in 2009.
On the public relations agency side, Chandra managed technology clients for The Alliant Group and Edelman, the world’s largest PR firm.
Chandra has a bachelor’s degree in public relations from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, and a master’s degree in speech communication from Texas State University in San Marcos.
She and her husband Chris support several not-for-profit organizations in Austin, including Ballet Austin, Mack, Jack & McConaughey (MJ&M), and St. David’s Foundation. Chandra serves on the St. David’s Foundation Toast of the Town Committee, which in 2019 raised $1.5 million in scholarships for students pursuing careers in healthcare.
