Meet Blair Ciecko. Our Public Relations and Social Media Director as well as our in-house go-to for killer costume ideas. From hashtags to corporate mission statements, Blair juggles it all without missing a beat in the world of pop culture. In her 10 years with Celtic, she’s helped carefully craft countless message points that help our clients communicate through branding initiatives, PR announcements, social media and crisis responses. And when she’s not looking at client messaging from 10,000 feet, our resident outdoor enthusiast can be found enjoying the view while camping under the stars. Read on to learn more about Blair, including how raising three sons has perfectly prepared her for her role at Celtic.
Can you explain what you do at Celtic? And you only get 6 words.
Help companies creatively tell their stories.
What’s something your fellow Celts probably don’t know about you?
Probably that I recently visited my 26th U.S. National Park. Nothing beats sleeping in our pop-up camper under the stars.
Besides seeing our smiling faces, what’s your favorite part of your day-to-day workload? Before we start any client project, we figure out who the organization is as a brand and what makes it unique. Every subsequent project has to convey that. I love seeing the pie in the sky idea become a tangible piece of work. The creative process is the most satisfying part of these strategy exercises. Check out our branding at work.
If you could choose one amenity to add to the workplace, what would it be?
The kitchen in our new space is amazing, but it could still use a built-in sushi bar. Delicious sushi whenever I want? Yes, please!
What was your all-time, best-ever Halloween costume?
My husband and I got especially creative last year. He went as painter Bob Ross and I went as one of his happy little trees. We won the originality award in a landslide.
What have you learned from being a mom of three boys?
Messy is the norm, drama is kept to a minimum. Pretty much my philosophy on crisis communication as well! (Also, mom is the princess of the house.)
Time to learn a little bit more about Blair with our “Lightning Round.”
Foo Fighters. Those guys know how to put on a show.
Fave social media platform?
If you could be fluent in any language, what would it be?
I would love to know sign language.
Word association, GO!
