Joe Paluska

Global Chair, Technology Practice, Edelman

Joe Paluska is chairman of Edelman’s global technology practice, where he advises the world’s most innovative companies on how to scale communications globally, navigate board expectations and management squabbles, and develop strategic communications programs that deliver business momentum. He brings more than 20 years of hands-on international experience to this role.

Before joining Edelman, Joe was vice president of global communications and policy at Better Place, a high-flying Silicon Valley startup that also crashed and burned, which taught Joe as many lessons in what to do to be successful as it did in what not to do. Prior to Better Place, Joe led Hill & Knowlton Strategies’ global technology practice, where he helped to rebuild a global market leader into a force to be reckoned with.

Joe serves on the Board of Advisors for the Billion People Project, a non-profit organization that seeks to connect one billion people who support climate change solutions. He holds an MBA from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and currently resides in Paris with his wife and two children.
