Burns Patterson runs his own Tarrytown-based public relations firm, HudsonPR. Previously, he was director of public relations and new media for the non-profit educational organization Historic Hudson Valley, where he worked for nine years, including leading the PR roll-out for the opening of Kykuit, the Rockefeller Estate. He has also had roles with Cablevision in the Hudson Valley region and as director of public relations, sports properties, for Madison Square Garden. For ten years, he worked at Middleton & Gendron Brand Communications in New York City, a leading travel and hospitality focused PR agency where he became chief operating officer and directed account teams for global hospitality clients.
