Stephen J. Alford

EDhear, Inc. has developed a reputation for delivering unparalleled strategic communications services to schools, school districts and school leaders. The company offers a host of services including crisis communications, marketing, media relations management, media training, branding, video production, graphic design and social media management for schools. 

EDhear is led by Stephen J. Alford, former communications leader at Atlanta Public Schools (APS). Alford spent nearly twenty years at APS before moving to the private sector. During Alford's tenure leading communications at APS, the school  district was home of the state and national Superintendent of the Year, Board of Education of the Year, and Board Member of the Year. In addition, Alford successfully managed the communications process requirement that allowed APS to regain full accreditation. He also successfully developed and managed a crisis communications strategy for countless school district issues, including the aftermath of the infamous CRCT standardized test cheating scandal, abrupt leadership change, school shootings, school closures, a gas leak at an elementary school and a host of other school crises. 

My commitment to helping schools, school leaders and school districts continues at EDhear. Our company is uniquely qualified to help schools meet their communications and branding needs.
