Marc Rylander serves as Senior Vice President of Communications for Texas for Strategies 360. In this role, Marc guides clients with government relations, communications strategies, press relations, and messaging to deliver winning results. Prior to joining our team, he served as Director of Communications and Senior Advisor to the Texas Attorney General.
Having spent a lifetime in various communications roles, Marc most recently led all messaging efforts for the Texas Attorney General’s 4,200-employee state agency. He oversaw a staff engaged in earned traditional media, PR management and social media strategy. Marc’s relationships in the press secured favorable media appearances for the Attorney General in Texas and across the country. In this role, Marc wielded a diverse set of communications skills to guide his state through policy conversations, offer messages of support during natural disasters and manage PR for the legal arm of the Lone Star State.
Communications is literally in Marc’s blood. His grandfather (and personal hero) was an early broadcasting giant in Dallas who helped pioneer WFAA TV, after serving as a radio operator in World War II and then as a disc jokey at WFAA radio, before there was television in Texas.
Marc holds a bachelor’s degree in telecommunications (broadcast journalism) from Baylor University, and has three master’s degrees. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees of Houston Baptist University, where he was Chairman of the Board in 2018-2019.
Marc’s passion is his family and all things outdoors, especially hunting, fishing, grilling, camping, landscaping and golfing. He also has a goal of watching a baseball game in every Major League Baseball stadium with his sons before they graduate high school; they have seven stadiums remaining.
