MEET PAUL BERAN
CORPORATE AND COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP WITH CONVICTION, CREATIVITY AND CONSCIENCE.
Paul Beran, born and raised in Pittsburgh and permanently settled in Franconia District, Fairfax County. Married to Lynn, his beautiful and supportive Asian wife for nearly 20-years. Together, they raised her son, David (29), and nurtured his sons Matthew (40) and Andrew (38).
President/CEO of Advertel, Inc., the marketing firm Paul founded in 1983. Got an early start in 1969 as on-air radio disc jockey for a Pittsburgh radio station. Assisted in numerous political campaigns, winning most. Politically active throughout most of his adult life, focusing on the qualities of the individual candidate, and not on party affiliation. Assisted candidates on both sides of the aisle.
Spokesperson for the Democrat Party of Allegheny County, PA (1973-1983), and asked to join the White House Business Council (2013.)
Paul learned how to listen, be patient with others who have differing viewpoints, and negotiate peaceful resolutions.
Fifteen (15) years as a single dad taught Paul how difficult life can be. Juggling the needs and desires of two growing boys, caring for his late parents and grandmother -- who cherished life until she was 102, Paul also managed a creative staff of more than twenty (20) where he managed the digital marketing needs of over 300 clients -- a few were Fortune 500.
Yet, Paul still volunteered extensively for the Catholic Church, the local zoning board, and neighborhood to combat terrifying mine subsidence. Paul also defeated objectionable zoning rulings that would have virtually destroyed neighborhood home values.
Jesus Christ provides Paul with every tool, grace, strength and health to tackle it all...successfully.
