Kelly Puspoki rejoins Weber as VP

Weber Shandwick today announced that Kelly Puspoki has rejoined the firm’s consumer marketing practice as vice president.

Having previously held a nine-year term with Weber Shandwick beginning in 2000, Puspoki has managed a variety of accounts in the consumer electronics, food and beverage, retail and home products categories. She has been a key contributor to campaigns and programs for clients including Polaroid, Best Buy, Jo-Ann Stores, General Mills and The Coca-Cola Company. In addition, Puspoki is noted for building strong client relationships, implementing results-driven programs and exceptional team leadership.

Another of Puspoki’s passions is promoting education and helping youth and families. She dedicated four years as the marketing communications chair and a member of the board of directors at The Link, a Twin Cities non-profit that provides life skills training, positive affirmation and after-school programs for at-risk youth and families. During her time with the organization, Puspoki developed a five-year PR/marketing plan, including a communications program for the launch of a local homeless shelter funded by The Link for young adults.

She holds a bachelor of arts in journalism and public relations with an emphasis in philosophy and theology from St. Mary’s University. Puspoki has been recognized for her outstanding work on various account teams with multiple industry awards including SABREs, Silver and Bronze Anvils, IABC Gold Quills and PRSA Classics.
