Nick Lanyi

Nick Lanyi, communication expert and an affiliate consultant at Ragan Consulting Group, has spent his career telling stories—and helping clients tell theirs. He started as a beat reporter on a suburban newspaper, then moved to financial journalism, including several years as executive editor of Louis Rukeyser’s Wall Street, one of the highest-circulation investment newsletters in history.

A native of Washington, D.C., Lanyi combined his political savvy and journalism chops as managing director at the boutique public affairs firm LMG and as head of public affairs in the D.C. office of global PR agency Porter Novelli, where his clients included Fortune 500 organizations, trade associations and leading nonprofits.
