CHICAGO, Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Strategy execution firm Gagen MacDonald announced today that John Onoda, former corporate and consulting executive, has joined the firm as a senior corporate counselor.  Based in San Francisco, Onoda will help counsel the firm's clients on corporate character, culture and business transformation, drawing on his three decades of experience, including Chief Communications roles at Charles Schwab, Visa USA, General Motors and Levi Strauss & Co.

"John is one of our industry's top counselors, and I'm delighted to welcome him to our team.

For the past 15 years, he has served as a Senior Consultant at FleishmanHillard, where in addition to advising and coaching clients on how to operationalize their company strategies, he served on the agency's International Advisory Board. Onoda began his career in public relations with roles at McDonald's, Holiday Inn, and Mitchell Energy & Development, and has been a highly influential member of top industry organizations, including serving on the boards of the Arthur W. Page Society, Business for Social Responsibility, and Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).

Onoda comes to Gagen MacDonald highly decorated for his achievements and contributions to communications, including receiving the Milestones in Mentoring award from the Betsy Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations, the Distinguished Service Award from the Arthur W.
