Frank Strong is the founder and president of Sword and the Script Media, LLC, a veteran-owned business focused on PR, content marketing and social media for the B2B market space. His agency grew out of a humble marketing blog Strong started some seven years ago. Blogging provided both the opportunity to grow and experiment with emerging marketing techniques while also fostering a powerful online community and network. The trust and credibility he gained in the process naturally evolved into a platform on which to build a business.
Strong has held multiple PR, communications and marketing communications roles in-house with corporations, ranging from startups to the mid-market to global organizations. He has also endured the rigors of billable hours, having completed gigs with PR firms including the top 10 global firm Hill & Knowlton. He has primarily served B2B clients or employers in segments including enterprise software, SaaS, telecom, manufacturing, law and legal tech and venture capital.
A veteran of two year-long deployments, Strong has concurrently served in uniform in reserve components of the military for more than 20 years, initially as an enlisted Marine and later as an infantry officer in the Army National Guard. He retired from the service after having last served as the chief of operations (CHOPS) for an Army National Guard Infantry Division.
Strong holds a BA in Film and TV production from Worcester State University, an M.A. in Public Communication from American University, and an M.B.A. from Marymount University. He is a PADI-certified Master Scuba Diver and holds a USPA "B" skydiving license.
