Chandler Poling is the Co-Founder and President of White Bear PR, a Public Relations firm specializing in Publicity for Composers, Music Supervisors, and Film & Music Festivals around the world.


Ever since he started in PR in 2008, Chandler ran numerous successful Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe campaigns leading to nominations and wins for his clients. He created the first ever composer-focused panel at Comic-Con San Diego, the World’s Largest Pop Culture Convention, as well as at WonderCon, its sister convention.
