Tom: As a former journalist, it's gratifying to create media opportunities for deserving organizations, individuals and issues. It's fun to pick up the newspaper in the morning and see "my" stories, even though I don't have a byline anymore. Working for an agency has also diversified and broadened my professional contacts, and I'm surprised how many times helping one client has led to another.

Tom: I've met industry peers who have become good friends and I've watched members land new jobs because of connections they've made through IABC. The new perspectives and insights shared by the monthly speakers are a great way to recharge the PR batteries.

Tom Droege, Account Supervisor A former award-winning journalist, Tom Droege brings top-notch writing skills and intimate knowledge of Tulsa media relations needs and behavior, as well as strong relationships with reporters, editorial boards and producers in the Tulsa market. At Rex PR, he leads some of the firms highest profile clients, including The University of Tulsa and PLANiTULSA, which is the City of Tulsas update to its comprehensive plan. On a daily-basis, he works closely with our Tulsa graphic designer, Tulsa Web developers, strategists and other staff members to execute communication solutions for a variety of Oklahoma clients.
Tom previously worked for a Fortune 500 energy company where his communication responsibilities for the construction of multi-state pipeline projects included community outreach, public hearings, open houses and Oklahoma media relations. Working in collaboration with investor relations professionals, landmen, engineers and other specialists, he developed media kits, news releases, key messages, presentations and other external and internal communication materials to support these large-scale and often controversial infrastructure projects.
As a former media professional with subsequent years of experience working in Tulsa public relations, Tom is adept at managing the story during circumstances when opponents to a project create confusion or misinformation. He has excellent rapport with the local press and has, on numerous occasions, provided expert third party sources to bring balance to reports. In addition to his Oklahoma media relations capabilities, Tom has spent significant time in previous projects garnering the support of local elected officials, community leaders, editorial boards and other potential advocates.
As a staff writer for the Tulsa World in 2006, Tom won the Division A/Sweepstakes award from the Associated Press for in-depth reporting on a decades-long migration of undocumented workers from Zacatecas, Mexico to Tulsa. He covered a variety of beats as a reporter, including business and breaking news. His enterprise pieces frequently appeared on A-1 and were regularly picked up by wire services. In addition, Tom was a stringer for Dow Jones News and a freelance writer for the Oklahoma Gazette as well as for various industry publications and Web sites.
