As an industry recognized expert in public engagement, with a specialty in crisis and issues management, Behm helps guide global companies' reputations through turbulent times. His team has managed client crisis and issues across a spectrum of readiness and response work, including preparedness planning, litigation communication, corporate reputation management, public affairs, and immediate response.
 
For example, he recently assumed all aspects of corporate communications for a Fortune 500 company after a major industrial disaster, during which time its stock stabilized and grew counter-cyclical to the economic recession in 2008 and 2009, the facility itself was fully rebuilt and operational 20 months after the incident, and the company quickly reestablished its position as a market leader, all with 100% employee retention.
 
Prior to joining Edelman, Behm worked in government and on political campaigns for more a decade. He then took his skills to a specialized public affairs firm, which helped clients manage tough legislative and regulatory challenges. Behm has been a contributor to CNN, The Washington Journal, Business Week, Crisis Manager, and numerous industry panels on crisis and issues management.
