Far Post Media is a global integrated communications firm that specializes in effectively leveraging traditional, digital and emerging media platforms for a variety of international clients.
Far Post Media founder and president, David Almacy, brings over 20 years of experience at the intersection of public relations, digital and media. The name of the company was chosen primarily due to the nature of our business. “Far” represents the international aspect of reaching target audiences and engaging influencers abroad. “Post” refers to the act of creating and publishing content through various media platforms consistent with defined client communications objectives. In addition, as a longtime soccer coach, David was inspired by the aggressive approach of shooting the ball across the goal on offense towards the “far post” which increases the chances of scoring.
David spent over six years as a Senior Vice President in Edelman’s Washington, DC office where he consulted and advised clients such as Hilton Worldwide, Adobe, Wounded Warrior Project, ICANN, Microsoft, BSA | The Software Alliance, Walmart, Starbucks, National Mining Association, BAE Systems, Inc. and American Petroleum Institute.
From 2005-07, he served as the White House Internet and E-Communications director for President George W. Bush where he managed online communications strategy, and served as a press spokesperson and lead contact for digital influentials. In addition, he was the primary owner of the White House website and spearheaded the site’s comprehensive redesign in March 2007.
Additional professional background includes stints with Waggener Edstrom Worldwide, Republican National Committee, Phi Delta Theta Fraternity, Washington Business Journal, C-SPAN, GovTech Solutions and the U.S. Department of Education.
Also, as a lecturer in Georgetown University’s Public Relations and Corporate Communications program, he has taught graduate level digital communications strategy classes on the emerging influence of the Internet and social media in government, public relations, politics, issue advocacy and corporate brand reputation.
