The DeFeo Groupe is the home of content for a new era of communication. Content is a buzzword today, but quality content has stood the test of time.
Todd DeFeo launched The DeFeo Groupe in 2014 based on his experiences gleaned from a dozen years in the public relations and publishing industries. DeFeo is an award-winning journalist, an avid traveler, amateur historian, a Civil War buff, a ferroequinologist and a part-time folk singer.
He focuses on corporate communications, media relations and issues management for a variety of clients.
His client work includes content strategies for reaching disparate audiences online, managing community outreach campaigns and media relations, which has enabled Todd to develop close relationships with reporters and editors throughout the Southeast. He has developed and managed messaging for clients on a range of issues and has served as issues management lead for several clients, both public and private.
“As a former reporter, Todd has always brought a journalist’s skepticism and probing manner to each assignment. His understanding of how and why reporters act as they do has proven invaluable in securing coverage for our clients. And his innate curiosity drives him to challenge assumptions making his clients and his colleagues smarter in the process.”

“We never made it easy on Todd. Some of the stories he covered, in some of the areas he covered them, would make even veteran reporters uncomfortable. No matter, however, he always got his story. Working closely with his editors and building solid relationships on his beat, Todd matured into an impressive reporter who followed a story with real passion. He worked a beat hard, and served as a constant advocate for his true bosses – the readers.”
