In this position, he writes extensively in order to craft compelling content to promote and facilitate the needs of his clients, produces visually appealing and engaging video content, and pitches his clients for valuable media coverage through various outlets that would offer significant exposure for their respective brands. He was previously active as a freelance publicist with RDG Communications Group between 2012 and 2019 and both a program liaison and tribal communications manager for the Health Services of the Cherokee Nation between 2005 and 2019.

He concluded his studies at The University of Oklahoma in 1991, graduating with a Master of Arts in journalism and media management. A citizen of the Cherokee Nation who was raised in a Native American culture, Mr. Gibson faced a number of unique challenges in the field of public relations, including an understood requirement to be in the public eye, but believes his clear advancement as a publicist will inspire other Native Americans to follow in his footsteps.

Beyond his primary responsibilities, Mr. Gibson has participated in numerous endeavors outside of his immediate circles. With an unwavering commitment to his community, he has contributed as the director of communications and meetings for the Ground Water Protection Council from 1991 to 1996, the incorporator and founding director for the Safe American Family Education Foundation from 2001 to 2005, the executive director for the Tahlequah Chamber of Commerce from 2002 to 2005, and a board member for the CDC Media Campaign Resource Center from 2013 to 2019.

Most recently, RDG Communications Group, LLC was recognized as The Best Independent Public Relations Agency in the Western United States at The American Business Awards in 2023.

Mr. Gibson has attributed his success to the invaluable and deeply appreciated support of his family, who stood behind his decision to depart from his full-time job and establish RDG Communications Group, LLC. Renowned for his confidence and his ambition, he has notably emphasized the importance of identifying and respecting cultural differences in the workplace as the cornerstone of his work in public relations. Among his proudest achievements, he fondly recalls representing The Libera Boys Choir from London throughout their U.S. tour since 2019, including their high-profile performances in Washington, D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles, California. Looking toward the future, Mr. Gibson hopes to establish a company and legacy that can endure beyond his retirement while continuing to benefit his family and the next generations of public relations professionals.
