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.
