Neil Alumkal is the Founder of Stuntman PR, an outspoken disruptor within food & beverage publicity — and the lead innovator of viral marketing at large within the public relations industry. Aiming to serve as a counterpoint to staid PR practices since Stuntman was founded in 2010, Alumkal has led Stuntman to be the only major U.S. agency to abandon traditional publicity in favor of bold, highly disruptive campaigns. In the past year alone, Alumkal’s nontraditional approach has netted multi-year agreements on behalf of Stuntman to serve as the agency of record for Vintage Wine Estates (NASDAQ: VWE), and lead the public relations campaign for its $700 million IPO. Alumkal also signed two of Italy’s primary “holy grail” agri-foods — Parmigiano Reggiano and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Alumkal recently won the Grand Prize as PR Daily’s Public Relations Leader of the year.
