John Guilfoil is the Founder and Owner of JGPR, founding the public relations firm in 2013 to support media relations for police and fire departments during a crisis. Since then, the company has expanded to include school districts, public health agencies, public works, state/county agencies and whole municipal governments, as well as non-profits and business clients.

He is also the Founder and Owner of JGPR Academy.

John has been honored nationally for his work on behalf of JGPR’s clients, and has overseen the company’s growth into the premier, go-to firm within the municipal and public safety sector. 

John’s interest in public safety began at a young age — his father and brother serve as firefighters on the same department in Connecticut — and journalism and the media became a passion. In 2007 John completed a double bachelor’s degree in journalism and criminal justice with a concentration in policing studies at Northeastern University, and in 2010 he received a master’s Degree from Emerson College.

John teaches journalism and public relations at Northeastern University and Lasell University and has extensive experience training police, fire, school, and municipal government personnel on a variety of topics including Public Relations, Media Relations, and Crisis Management. His courses taught through JGPR Academy include “Public Relations and Media Relations for First Responders,” “Public Relations and Crisis Management for School Administrators,” “Effective Communications Strategies for Municipal Leaders,” and more.
