Senior Vice President
With more than 25 years in the publicity business, Senior Vice President Nick Harkin has worked with some of the biggest names in show business, from the Radio City Music Spectacular to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Named one of Chicago’s “most notable public relations practitioners” by Crain’s Chicago Business, Nick brings unparalleled passion, creativity and dedication to every project he touches.
During his time with CF&A, Nick is proud to have launched Blue Man Group’s newest shows in New York, Chicago and Boston; 14 editions of the Chicago International Film Festival, the 125th anniversary of the Auditorium Theatre; the Chicago Riverwalk; Millennium Park’s 10th Anniversary Celebration; and high profile fundraising events, including the Carl Sandburg Literary Awards and the Gene Siskel Film Center Renaissance Awards.
When he isn’t publicizing Chicago’s top entertainment and lifestyle institutions, you can find Nick enjoying the city’s lakefront, tending to his community garden or singing in the DePaul Community Chorus.
