In August 2006, the St Petersburg Times reported that Caloroso had been appointed by the firm and that he had previously been an "account supervisor and media relations manager at Porter Novelli, Los Angeles."[3] While at Porter Novelli Caloroso worked, at least in part, on the McDonald's account.[4]

In the 1990s, Caloroso acted as spokesman for the Strawberry Workers and Farmers Alliance, an anti-union front group for strawberry growers created by the Dolphin Group.[5][6][7][8]
