Big changes are afoot at one of Denver’s largest and most successful PR firms:
Sharon H. Linhart, founder and managing partner, is transitioning into a new role with our firm that she started 20 years ago, and Paul Raab has been named the new managing partner, effective today. Sharon will remain involved in client service and business development through year-end, while ensuring a smooth transition for our clients and team. Beginning in 2017, she will devote her attention to her long-time passion for community and philanthropic service, as well as corporate board service. Raab, who joined Linhart PR 10 years ago, will take on the leadership role of managing partner, while continuing to serve key clients and overseeing the firm’s long-standing commitment to excellence in client service, teamwork and business performance.
Our firm’s other three partners – Carri Clemens, Kelly Janhunen and Kelly Womer – remain in their current roles, and our entire team looks forward to tapping the power of communications to solve business challenges and find opportunities for our clients. Later this year, we’ll host an Open House to celebrate our past, present and future together!
Additionally, partner Dawn Doty is leaving the firm to teach public relations at the University of Colorado Boulder’s College of Media, Communication and Information.
Aldo Svaldi at The Denver Post reports:
Colorado’s workforce should grow twice as fast as the rest of the country through 2024, with many of those new jobs coming in higher-paying, knowledge-based occupations, according to a labor market study from the Colorado Office of Economic Development.
But the study — conducted by Mercer — found some big mismatches when it comes to the kind of college degrees students in the state are obtaining, and the jobs available.
“We are doing pretty good on the employer side. We will have to focus more on the talent side,” said Fiona Arnold, executive director of the state’s economic development office.
For example, Colorado graduates enough advertising, marketing and public relations majors each year to replace everyone employed in those fields in the state — and then some.
Congratulations to the Denver Broncos’ public relations staff, which has been selected as the 2016 Pete Rozelle Award winners by the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA). The Rozelle Award is given to the NFL public relations staff that “consistently strives for excellence in its dealings and relationships with the media.”
Denver’s PR department is led by Patrick Smyth (VP of public relations), assisted by Erich Schubert (senior manager of media relations), Seth Medvin (media relations coordinator) and Rebecca Villaneuva (corporate communications manager). The department was also assisted by interns Brock Anderson and Anne Noland.
When I was at StorageTek, the CEO asked me what it would take to get him on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. “Embezzle $100 million,” I joked.
Recently, Chipotle has seen a lot more coverage in the Wall Street Journal than it wants, and the hits just keep on coming. If you see Chris Arnold today, buy him a drink. He’s earned it.
