The voice of the American Bus Association left the organization this month and has his own media consultancy. He previously wrote a few articles for LCT Magazine.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Eron Shosteck, senior vice president of communications, marketing and media relations for the AMERICAN BUS ASSOCIATION, left the trade association this month.
The ABA declined to comment. LCT contacted Shosteck via e-mail for comment, and will update this article if needed.
Shosteck joined ABA in March 2007, bringing two decades of experience as a Congressional aide, journalist, and transportation media strategist to serve ABA and its members. At ABA, he focused on earning positive media coverage positioning the motorcoach as a key component of any transportation solution; provided tools to ABA members to help them increase media exposure for their businesses; and produced marketing materials that busy members could easily customize to convey key messages to targeted audiences, including elected officials and the traveling public.
Before ABA, Shosteck worked at a PR agency representing the Diesel Technology Forum, served six years as director of communications for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, as an editor and columnist for National Journal's Hotline, and as a press secretary on Capitol Hill.
He is also the author of the 2005 novel, "POTOMAC BEACH," a political satire that was praised by The New Republic, Roll Call and National Journal.
According to his PUBLIC PROFILE on LinkedIn, Shosteck left the ABA in January 2011 and is now president and CEO of THE MEDIA CONSULTANT GROUP.
Shosteck will still appear on the Bus Panel session at the 2011 INTERNATIONAL LCT SHOW as scheduled. He also has written a few guest columns and articles for LCT Magazine in the past year.
