Mike Casey is the President and founder of Tigercomm, a leading U.S. cleantech PR firm with offices in Arlington, VA and San Francisco, CA. He uses his 28 years of experience in communications to counsel cleantech executives and investors. Tigercomm has helped companies develop and execute community relations plans for clean energy projects; launch products; and generate attention from investors, customers and policy leaders. Mike has trained over 1,700 people on message development, media interviewing and public relations management. He writes frequently at National Geographic’s Great Energy Challenge, Greentech Media, Renewable Energy World, and Scaling Green about removing the barriers to clean energy adoption. Before founding Tigercomm, Mike served on two presidential campaigns, and as a spokesman for both a U.S. Senator and a U.S. Congressman. He also built and ran the communications operations of two national environmental groups: the National Environmental Trust, which won 22 straight issue campaigns during his tenure; and the Environmental Working Group, which earned the reputation as "dollar for dollar, demonstrably one of the most effective groups in Washington,” according to National Journal magazine.
