Bob Gunnell

Rainmaker

Bob is our Rainmaker; a term defined by Webster’s Dictionary as “A person who attempts to cause rain to fall; or A person who is highly successful in business.” While Bob’s attempts at making the clouds spit rain fail, thankfully his work for our clients succeeds. Bob’s resume boasts decades of marketing, public relations and crisis communications for Fortune 500 companies. In addition, Bob was a campaign manager and the go-to political consultant for high profile races throughout the Commonwealth and the United States, handling swing-state advertising in a presidential race.

Bob began his career at WHAS radio before co-founding a political consulting firm Media Plus. He then co-founded Peritus, a public relations and public affairs company, which at the time of his departure had offices in five states. Bob left Peritus in 2011 to launch BoxcarPR.

Today, Bob oversees Boxcar’s operations in three different markets (Louisville, Lexington, Cincinnati). For years he has served as the Official Spokesperson for the Muhammad Ali Family.

When away from the office, Bob enjoys battling his son Nicholas on the tennis courts.
