Bevacqua Joins Pecchia Communications as Senior Consultant

CANFIELD, Ohio – Pecchia Communications announced Thursday that Vince Bevacqua, a former television news anchor with 13 years of public relations experience, has joined the company as senior consultant.

Bevacqua serves Pecchia Communications clients across a variety of PR and marketing activities.

“Vince’s arrival greatly expands the capabilities we offer our clients and gives us an excellent opportunity to accelerate our growth,” says Dan Pecchia, president of Pecchia Communications. “As Ohio continues to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we look forward to helping more companies understand and capitalize on the value of communications.”

Bevacqua was most recently corporate communications director for Compco Industries in Columbiana. Previously, he was a vice president with Prodigal and operated his own boutique PR firm.

Before his work in PR, Bevacqua spent 14 years in the television news business, including eight as anchor at WYTV Channel 33 in Youngstown. There he won three Ohio Associated Press awards for excellence in reporting.

“I’m enjoying this new setting that emphasizes genuine, affordable expertise over the trappings of the agency world,” Bevacqua says. “We’re confident this is the right approach to connect with companies looking to capitalize on improving business conditions as the pandemic winds down.”
