He also serves as a trusted counselor to CEOs, entrepreneurs, and organizations and is adept at creating, preserving and enhancing awareness and reputation in complex situations.

Steven has led Rubenstein's evolution to meet the demands of a digitally dominated media environment, creating the firm's online reputation management and social media practices. He has expanded its earned media model— with emphasis on the strategic management of news and information across platforms to achieve client objectives — and increased the client diversity for which Rubenstein is known in virtually every aspect of business, media, entertainment, technology, real estate, sports, healthcare, education, culture, crisis, and philanthropy.

He started his Rubenstein career in the firm's mailroom. Throughout his tenure he has worked closely with his father, Howard, who founded the company in 1954 and today serves as Chairman.
