Steve Cody
Founder and CEO

I’m a climber, comedian and dog lover. But not necessarily in that order. I also happen to be the founder and CEO of Peppercomm, a fully integrated strategic communications firm headquartered in NYC, and with offices in San Francisco and London.

I’m most proud of:

  • Watching Pop-Pop, my recently-deceased, 97-year-old dad bond with Adrian, my one-year-old grandson at the latter’s christening.
  • Watching Chris and Catharine, my two children, being born and grow up to become successful professionals. Who knew?
  • Raising more than $100,000 for countless charities over the years courtesy of Peppercomm-hosted stand-up comedy shows.
  • Continuing my reckless love affair with ice, rock and alpine climbing.
  • Being named one of Northeastern University’s 100 most successful alumni (which doesn’t speak very well of the other 99).

I’m vice chairman of the Institute for Public Relations, a longtime member of the Arthur W. Page Society and a member of the advisory councils of the College of Charleston and the University of Florida, respectively. I’m also the co-author of “What’s keeping your customers up at night? which was published by McGraw-Hill in 2003 and has put thousands of readers to sleep.

One final thing: I derive immense satisfaction from mentoring students, guest lecturing at the universities who are brave enough to invite me to speak and helping fellow mid-life marketing communications professionals who have lost their way in life. My biggest turn on is helping others.

  1. Hello – Are you open to guest submissions? If so, I’d love to write an article for your site.

    The article I have in mind is how to start a business TODAY (yes, today!). I’ll provide the tools and tips needed to start a business within the framework of an 8 hour day. Each hour will have key tasks and outcomes assigned, and will be assigned in increments as small as 15 minutes. If followed, your business will be up and running by the end of the day!

    What do you say? May I write this for you to review and consider adding to your website?

    Many thanks for your time today,
