Consociate Media, a Gloucester based public relations firm, is proud to welcome Matt Sabo to the team as Lead Writer and Communications Associate.
With more than 20 years of professional writing experience, Sabo is excited to tell stories of entrepreneurs and businesses through writing, editing, blogging and across various social media platforms.
Consociate Media, headquartered on Main Street in Gloucester, Va., was founded in 2011 by Stephanie Heinatz, a former newspaper reporter who worked alongside Sabo at the Daily Press. Consociate Media provides public relations, communications and marketing support to businesses of varying sizes and multiple industries. Clients stretch from New York to Gloucester, Williamsburg to Virginia Beach, and beyond.
“I write because it’s my passion and I’m fueled by the stories I have the opportunity to tell,” Sabo said. “Being a writer has taken me places I’ve never imagined, given me amazing experiences I didn’t foresee and allows me to meet extraordinary people. It never grows old.”
Sabo was born and raised in Bend, Ore., and went on to graduate from the University of Portland after receiving a track scholarship. After working as a reporter for various newspapers in Oregon, Sabo and his family relocated to Virginia in 2004 when Sabo landed a job at the Daily Press of Newport News.
Sabo took a sabbatical from the world of reporting in 2014 to work for the Transformational Education Network (TEN3), a Christian non-profit missions organization. With TEN3, Sabo traveled to Africa and Haiti helping church leaders and educators in those countries start Bible-based computer training schools. Today, Sabo pastors a non-denominational church in Gloucester.
“I view writing with Consociate and the expertise we offer as a team as an opportunity to elevate lives and see entrepreneurs and business owners succeed in the work they’re so passionate about,” Sabo said.
In his free time, Sabo enjoys raising his children, missions work, Wiffle ball, gardening and road trips.
