Public Affairs Director

Greg Kapcar brings more than two decades of experience and measureable results in public relations, advocacy, public policy, and strategic engagement to the G2G team. Based in Cleveland, he manages business development for G2G and government affairs for clients. For twelve years, Greg worked for the statewide non-profit, OhioGuidestone, which provides behavioral health treatment services, skill building programs, and prevention opportunities for children and their families.

Greg also lived and worked in Columbus, where he served for seven years as the Legislative Director of the Public Children Services Association of Ohio, a statewide membership association of Ohio’s county Public Children Services Agencies. He led efforts to advance legislative and policy initiatives, resulting in a dozen pieces of legislation being signed into law; facilitated collaborative work across professional disciplines and state departments; and organized membership events, regional and statewide public forums, discussions, training, and planning summits. Most recently, Greg led a small non-profit in Cleveland, managing customer and public relations, advertising and marketing, employee supervision, human resources, and sales.
