Rumor has it that John Boyanoski never sleeps because of the way he always seems to be involved in every project no matter what time of day (or night) it is. The truth is he sleeps, but he won’t tell anyone how or when.
John is the “media” guy at Complete Public Relations having spent the bulk of his career as a reporter and editor for newspapers and magazines nationwide before going into public relations. That lets him know the inner workings of how the media thinks and acts. And as a published author, he knows the demands the media can make. That is part of what sets Complete apart from the other firms…we know both sides of the fence so that allows us to offer more to our clients.
When not running Complete, John believes in service to the Upstate, South Carolina community. He was the 2013 chair for the Greenville Chamber’s PULSE Advisory Council, which represents more than 1,000 young professionals in the Upstate. He also sits on the Chamber’s LEAD Executive Committee with an interest in the sponsorship group; the Chamber's Board of Advisors; The Chamber's Small Business Council; is chairman of the Friends of the Greenville Zoo board; formerly sat on the Leadership Council for Meals on Wheels of Greenville; serves on the county's Laurens Road trail committee and is an active member of Greenville Forward and the Greenville Track Club. He was named one of Greenville's Best and Brightest in 2012 and is a graduate of Leadership Greenville Class 40. He was named the Greenville Chamber's 2014 Young Professional of the Year.
