Meet the Team
Larry Fink | President
1on1 Public Relations President Larry Fink is among the most beloved PR people in America. Larry made his initial bones over a seven-year period as a field producer and segment producer at “Access Hollywood.” Working closely with longtime “Access Hollywood” Executive Producer Rob Silverstein, Larry developed strong relationships with celebrities, their many handlers, interviewing virtually every celebrity and reality star in Hollywood, and also secured exclusive interviews at major sporting events.
In 2006, Larry moved to Las Vegas to become the Executive Director of the Palms Casino Resort. Over the next six years, Larry led a public relations effort for expansion projects totaling $750 million. While serving as communications advisor to Palms owner and president George Maloof, Larry played a major part in turning the Palms into the hottest celebrity destination on the Strip.
Larry has worked with and helped famous celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga while directing long-term campaigns for multimillion projects and openings that included Fantasy Tower, Playboy Club, Pearl Concert Theater, Palms Place, Studio at the Palms, and Palms Pool.
Since working at the Palm Larry has lead the PR for Planet Hollywood International. Doing what many industry observers heretofore thought impossible, Larry secured a cooking segment on the “Today Show” for the head chef of Buca di Beppo, a Planet Hollywood-owned chain restaurant. Larry executed openings of another Planet Hollywood restaurant, Earl of Sandwich, in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and Anaheim. While at Planet Hollywood, Larry doubled its social media following and improved data acquisition on Facebook and Twitter. Larry also oversaw PR for Planet Dailies LA and Mixology 101 LA in Los Angeles.
In 2014, Larry became Vice President of Kravetz PR, a boutique agency with offices in Los Angeles and New York. When Kravetz ceased operations in September, Larry and his uncle, Mitchell Fink, formed 1on1 Public Relations, and are currently representing Steve Madden and a host of other clients on both coasts.
