Steve Haweeli, founder and president of WordHampton Public Relations, is one of Long Island's most successful and recognizable agency principals. He is an ambassador for the region who is often sought for views by national, NY metro and local media on the restaurant and hospitality business, social media and Hamptons lifestyle subjects. In 2012 - his firm's 20th anniversary year - Haweeli builds on WordHampton's well-known strategic counseling and media expertise by announcing a new division: the Long Island Restaurant & Hospitality Group. The business-to-consumer promotions unit unites key brand assets established under Haweeli's aegis including Long Island Restaurant News, Long Island Restaurant Week and Hamptons Restaurant Week. Since 2003, the restaurant weeks have earned the region's businesses tens of millions of dollars in revenue, boosted sales in the off-season by as much as 200%, and contributed awareness and funds to local food pantries. Emulated by many towns across America, the Long Island-wide campaign received the 2008 Big Apple Award for Marketing Consumer Services, Travel and Tourism/Hospitality from the Public Relations Society of America's New York Chapter.
