Today, Joice creates and leads programs for clients spanning the arts, education, hospitality, tourism, retail, business-to-business, restaurant, consumer product, non-profit, wellness, health care and entertainment industries. A graduate of San Diego State University (SDSU), her creativity, energy and public relations savvy helped grow c3 from a one-person shop into one of San Diego’s most successful long-standing boutique PR agencies.

 

Before founding c3, Joice worked at Berkman Communications on their executive team and also served as media relations director and national spokesperson for Children’s Hospital and Health Center San Diego (now Rady Children’s Hospital). In addition, rounding out her over near 30 years of experience, she worked as a press secretary for the California State Legislature.

 

Joice is active in the industry and community. She is a two-time past president of the San Diego chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), past chair of the national PRSA Honors and Awards Committee, and has served on many non-profit executive boards. In addition, Joice volunteers for the Red Cross and Salvation Army locally in San Diego. Under her leadership, c3 is a big contributor supporting many local non-profits with pro-bono PR services.

Sean Curry

Partner & COO

 

As COO, Sean runs strategic point on c3’s clients and manages the collective c3 PR team. He oversees many of the national tours, shows and engagements c3 promotes each year as well as the franchise and multi-unit based consumer product clients for the agency because of his vast experience in franchising.

 

In addition, his forte is in Social Media. He leads robust and impactful social media campaigns for many of c3’s clients. Under his leadership and strategic social media execution, the c3 team has captured amazing social media results for its clients. A great example of this speaks to the social media work he did on the Miami International Boat Show® (largest boat show in the USA) Sean single-handedly got the show certified on Twitter. It is still the only boat show to date on Twitter to obtain this distinction.

 

A business veteran, prior to c3, Sean was COO for Certified Software Solutions, where he also managed the company’s operations, marketing and public relations efforts. Under his leadership, Certified Software Solutions grew from a $1 million company into a multi-million-dollar operation from three to 20 employees.

 

He taught extensively at National University, where he earned his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Software Engineering. In addition, he also served as faculty at University California San Diego (UCSD) Extension.

 

Sean is a multi-winner of both regional and national PR awards and also volunteers time in the San Diego community where c3 is headquartered.

 

When not a busy PR executive, he is an avid runner and travels as much as he can. He is the most avid Washington football fan you will ever meet.
