Steve Schuster is chairman and founder of Rainier Communications, a leading U.S. technology-marketing agency. He has more than 25 years of industry experience marketing and designing high-technology products, and while at Rainier has been the creative force behind hundreds of PR and advertising campaigns for a wide variety of high-tech innovations for Fortune 500 to Start-up companies. With BSEE and MBA degrees, Schuster began his career designing speech recognition systems for renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil, and later served in various management-level roles throughout the high-tech industry. Throughout his career, he discovered that existing PR and ad agencies were simply not capable of digesting and intelligently communicating technologies to technical audiences. In response, Schuster launched Rainier in early 1993 with a vision of providing technology companies with a credible resource for communicating “complex” technologies to the marketplace. Rainier Communications is headquartered outside of Boston and has a business development office in Kadima, Israel.
