Asheville native Hunter Frederick contributes to new nonprofit crisis communication book

Asheville native Hunter Frederick, founder and CEO of Frederick & Associates LLC has been named as an expert contributor for a new book on non-profit crisis communication. The how-to manual is being written specifically for the non-profit community to address the unique challenges communicators and executives face when planning for, responding to, and recovering from real threats and existing crises.

Frederick was born at Mission Hospital and resided in Canton until his parents moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1993. Frederick’s grandparents, Hazel and C.E. Frederick still reside in Canton. Frederick is a firm believer that his upbringing in Canton has played a critical part in his career by the way of his morals and values.

Frederick moved to Los Angeles, California where he worked for one of Hollywood’s most prestigious public relation firms before starting his own firm, Frederick & Associates. Known by some of Hollywood’s elite as The Zookeeper of Hollywood, Frederick has relentlessly pursued some of the most notorious celebrities in Hollywood in order to help them in restoring their public image by the way of PR support, addiction/treatment support. Frederick is an ordained minister and also works with churches and pastors who find themselves in a crisis by providing media relations support, spokesperson support, etc.

The author of the book, David Rudduck is the former American Red Cross Communication & Government Relations Director and Press Secretary for the Governor of Illinois. Rudduck is launching a crowdfunding campaign for his new crisis communication book, The Nonprofit Guide to Crisis Communications.

Rudduck will be running his campaign with Pubslush, a global crowdfunding platform only for books. The Pubslush campaign will last for 45 days beginning on January 6, 2014 with the goal of $29,675 to cover the myriad expenses associated with self-publishing. Proceeds from the sale of the book will help prevent the spread of illiteracy in third world countries.
