Max Weisman’s work at Ceisler Media often focuses on issue-based advocacy for government affairs and social justice. He is involved in helping clients’ causes in ending child sexual abuse, creating immigration reform and building affordable housing for low-income women.
Max also works with clients – from international corporations to local non-profits – to promote their philanthropic work.
He is skilled at coalition building, corporate communications and crisis communications. Max is an adept writer and is accomplished at incorporating earned and paid media, as well as the latest in digital media strategies. He knows how to develop and implement campaigns that gain positive attention.
For example, through the 2017 NFL season, Max worked with the Philadelphia Children’s Alliance and Eagles players Trey Burton, Nick Foles and Jordan Hicks to launch a successful fundraising campaign challenging fans to donate $5 to help end child abuse. Max created events, produced a promotional video with the players, and garnered attention on social media and Philadelphia mass media. As the Eagles’ season surprisingly moved toward a Super Bowl victory, Max several times recreated the campaign on the fly. In the end, the effort raised tens of thousands of dollars.
Max joined the Ceisler Media team in 2015 after working on several statewide and local political campaigns and in the Democratic National Committee research department.
He grew up in Plymouth Meeting and graduated from Temple University, where he studied communications and history. Max was active in the Temple College Democrats, the Hillel Center for Jewish Life and Student and Residential Life. He spent a semester abroad at Temple Rome, where he led a grassroots absentee ballot campaign to ensure that other American students and military officials could participate in the 2012 Presidential election.
Max recently bought a house in the East Falls section of Philadelphia. He is engaged to be married to Talia Gottesman.
Max is a founding coalition member of the Philadelphia Hebrew Public School, a Hebrew-language charter school currently in the planning process. He also serves on the finance committee of Camp Galil in Bucks County, which he attended as a boy.
Max’s passion is politics. He keeps a hand in that world by serving as an unofficial adviser to local candidates, helping craft their message.
He is an outdoorsman, who enjoys hiking and camping.
