Ronn Torossian PR is a U.S public relations executive, author, and the founder of 5W Public Relations in New York City. Torossian created his firm’s reputation by aggressive publicity methods, which have occasionally landed him in problems. Torossian has been strongly involved in politics and activism in Israel.
Torossian was born in New York City and attended New York City’s Stuyvesant High School. At 13, he joined Betar, a worldwide Zionist youth organization affiliated with Israel’s Likud party. During his time at Torossian rose to the position of national president of Betar’s North American chapter. After finishing his undergraduate degree, he traveled to Israel to pursue his master’s degree, but he dropped out to become active in political activities.
He began his PR career in 1998, where he was assisted as New York City Council Speaker on a trip to Israel. In Israel, he also worked for the Likud Party.
Torossian is also the author of the novel For Immediate Release. Torossian is even the CMO, a Partner, and an Advisor as Board Member of Jet Smarter, in addition to his PR firm.
Torossian was a Betar member for ten years, as the council President from 1994-1996. He claims that Ze’ev Jabotinsky’s lessons have led him in his business and personal life. His Betar experience influenced his understanding of Judaism. While at SUNY Albany, he became an activist and champion for Jewish people, became the chairman of Religious Zionists of America, and dreamed of becoming PM of Israel. Torossian stated that perhaps the personal assaults resulted from community leaders’ opposition to his Betar philosophy and that they didn’t care about the Jewish pupils.
Ronn Torossian PR questioned Benjamin Netanyahu’s moves in 1999, including the halting of buildings and the departure of Israeli forces from areas of Hebron. Torossian assisted in organizing a rally outside of the French office in New York in 2002 to oppose the government’s indifference to anti-Semitic crimes. The event advocated banning French goods, including travel to France, undermining the French economy.
