David Thalberg

David Thalberg is the president of Stryker-Munley Group, Los Angeles. 

David Thalberg is a public relations agency veteran with more than 30 years experience in the field. Working at agencies ranging from boutique to multi-national, he has led and executed strategic communications programs for numerous vertical categories.  These roles have included leadership positions as senior vice president of entertainment and technology divisions, as well as executive director roles overseeing complete agencies.

Although food + beverage is a personal (and professional) love, publishing has been the lynchpin for David's work, and many of the programs he continues to develop.  Today, he consults on many aspects of publishing; with corporate leaders ready to support their brands through a new book; to self-guide authors looking for new resources to publish; and with traditional publishers and authors ready to break out of a niche and reach broader audiences and create new revenue streams.

David is a graduate of Ithaca College and is an active alumnus, working with various committees to promote school programming, as well as advising current students. Since moving to California, David has also mentored students at California State University Fullerton as well as the CSUF Incubator.  He is a new member of Book Publicists of Southern California,  and Publishers + Writers of San Diego/Orange County.

David lives in Newport Beach, CA with his wife and two daughters, after spending the majority of his career in New York City.  Having brought his “New York Attitude” with him,  (along with his avid love for New York sports teams), he does continually remind the Los Angelenos that when he says he’s a “Giants” fan, he is speaking of the New York Football Giants! 

“I enjoy the enthusiasm with which you work with us, and I am grateful for the expertise and talent you share with us.”
