Rakia Reynolds is the founder of Skai Blue Media, a multimedia public relations agency with an all-star roster of lifestyle, technology and fashion clients. Reynolds was recently named one of the 25 tastemakers on Dell’s “Inspire 100” list, a list of the most socially influential people in the country.
As a leader in the public relations industry, Skai Blue Media provides business development, marketing, and message strategy to nonprofits, tech start-ups, and fashion designers, among other businesses. Reynolds’ path to entrepreneurship was led by many creative ventures including a role producing shows for MTV, TLC and Discovery Health networks, but ultimately she wanted to create a company that represented the future of public relations in the digital age.
A self-described “octopus woman, wearing many hats,” Reynolds currently serves as the co- president of the Philadelphia chapter of Women in Film & Television, serves as a board advisor for Fashion Group International, and the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications. Reynolds has also been recognized as an implementer of great strategy by the Young Entrepreneur Council, and was presented the Power to the Community award by PECO for being a community trailblazer.
