PORTLAND, OR — Everything is on the Record (@EIOTR), one of North America’s premier media and social media training and crisis communications firms, announced today that John Lashway has joined the firm. A sports and entertainment executive with more than 30 years of communications and management experience, Lashway will support EIOTR’s client services in the areas of media and social media coaching, strategic communications planning, reputation management, and crisis communications resolution.
“John Lashway has a breadth of experience in both the boardrooms and locker rooms at the professional and college sports levels that has earned him a reputation for being among the most highly-regarded executives in the sports communications field,” said Brian Berger, co-founder and Partner of Everything is on the Record. “He has the business acumen to work effectively with owners and senior administrators. He understands the mentality of coaches and athletes, and the intense demands upon them. One would be challenged to come across a scenario that John hasn’t dealt with before in small or large media markets.”
Following 22 years in senior management positions in the NBA and NHL, and five years in major college sports, Lashway launched Lashway Communications Group (LCG) in 2008. His consulting firm has delivered communications and organizational development strategy, image enhancement, reputation management, media coaching, and promotional planning to organizations and individuals in sports, the performing arts, not-for-profit, and corporate realms.

Their collective track record of success on behalf of clients in many areas is unsurpassed by any firm of its type in the country. It’s an honor to be joining their team.”
