Steve Janack to Join Behan Communications and Lead Firm’s New Innovation Practice Group

Albany, NY | Posted on December 7th, 2013

Janack most recently served as Vice President for Marketing and Communications at the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) in Albany and was instrumental in the development and execution of the communications strategy that helped position New York State as the global epicenter for nanotechnology. He oversaw communications and branding campaigns to drive CNSE's explosive growth in the Capital Region and in Utica, Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo, and built domestic and international partnerships with entities in Silicon Valley, Japan, Germany, Israel and other nations.

As a Vice President and leader of the Innovation Practice Group, Janack will develop and launch a division uniquely positioned to serve the communications, community relations and public affairs needs of emerging technology companies ranging from nanotechnology, life sciences and clean energy to higher education, transportation, and information technology, among others.

"Steve Janack is a leading architect of the Capital Region's historic transformation to Tech Valley," said Mark Behan, president and CEO of Behan Communications. "We are delighted to have him join our leadership team and put his insights and experience to work for our clients."

Prior to his work for CNSE, Janack served as Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer for the Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber of Commerce. At the Chamber of Commerce, he directed marketing and communications for New York's "Tech Valley Initiative," successfully marketing a 17-county region of upstate New York as a hub for high-tech jobs, companies, and investment. He produced and hosted two long-running television programs — "NanoNow" on Fox23 and "Tech Valley Report" on Time Warner Cable — that featured interviews with leading executives in the education, technology, business and government sectors.

Janack began his career as a television and radio journalist, serving as a news writer, producer, reporter, and anchor, and in management positions as assignment manager, news director and program director. He holds a B.A. from St. John Fisher College. He and his wife, Margo, make their home in Glenville with their son Josh.

As a Vice President at Behan, Janack will join the firm's senior leadership team: President and CEO Mark Behan, Chief Operating Officer Jon Cohen, Chief Financial Officer Kathy Messina, and Vice Presidents John Brodt, Joan Gerhardt, Bill Callen and Troy Burns.
