Robert Leaf is the father of PR. Having spent over 50 years in the business, Leaf has witnessed many important changes to the industry.

I started the first PR in Russia during the Cold War...[and]...I signed an agreement in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing putting the Chinese Government into PR for the first time.” He became chairman of Burson-Marsteller in 1985, and is the chairman of Robert S Leaf Consultants.
