About Paul

Paul Conley decided to enter journalism at the age of six. Too young to be hired as a paperboy, he convinced a neighborhood teenager to subcontract his route. Since then, Conley has continued to rewrite the rules of the communications world as a reporter, editor, bureau chief, producer and executive at companies such as CNN, Primedia Business, Bloomberg, CFO Publishing and Knight-Ridder Financial.

Today he works as a writer and consultant — practicing both journalism and crisis communications. He specializes in the food industry, Wall Street, and the transportation business. His clients have included New York Times Digital, IndustryDive, Penton, IDG, SmartBrief, Central Desktop, Vance Publishing, Reed Business Information, and others.
