Happy Bob Goff Day!
Saint Paul Mayor Chris Coleman has proclaimed Wednesday, November 9, as Bob Goff Day in recognition and appreciation of Bob’s advances in the communications profession and his commitment to the city of Saint Paul.
Forty-five years ago today Bob cofounded Coleman and Goff Advertising, now known as Goff Public, with business partner Nick Coleman, who later became a legendary state Senate Majority Leader. Mayor Chris Coleman, who issued the proclamation, is Nick Coleman’s son and a Goff Public alumnus.
Bob has been at the forefront of public relations and public affairs throughout his professional life. He became one of the state’s early public relations practitioners when he began pitching stories to newspapers about clients who could not afford expensive ad campaigns. During the past five decades, Bob has counseled countless public officials, civic leaders, and corporate executives in Saint Paul and throughout the state.
Bob now serves as chairman emeritus of Goff Public and continues to be involved in actively shaping the company’s long-term goals and providing strategic direction to clients.
In addition to his professional career, Bob has been an important civic activist in the Saint Paul community, serving on several state and local boards and in many other capacities.
Bob’s legacy and the business principles which he established 45 years ago still influence the work we and others in the profession do today. All of us at Goff Public are proud to be a part of Bob’s legacy and to work with such an inspiring leader in our community.
