Weber Shandwick promotes Jenny Myers to vice president

The Minneapolis office of Weber Shandwick announces the promotion of Jenny Myers to vice president in the firm’s Technology practice.

Since joining Weber Shandwick in 1996, Myers has focused on helping clients manage thought leadership, vertical public relations, product public relations and executive visibility programs. With more than 14 years of industry experience, she has worked mainly with technology and healthcare clients. As the client relationship manager for Ingenix, Myers has been instrumental in building the company’s thought leadership platform through public relations and analyst relations activities. Myers also works with Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, providing strategic counsel and ongoing support for the organization.

“Jenny began her public relations career at Weber Shandwick and we have watched her grow from an intern to an experienced leader who others turn to for critical client assignments,” said Sara Gavin, president of Weber Shandwick’s Minneapolis office. “We are excited to announce Jenny’s promotion, which recognizes her many contributions to our office’s growth and success and our desire to engage her as an integral part of the office leadership team.”

Myers managed the launch of multiple new products in the medical device industry and led vertical public relations programs for an enterprise software company within the healthcare, manufacturing, food and beverage, retail, government and education markets.

Myers also has lent her experience to her industry by serving as a Classics Awards Committee co-chair for the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Minnesota Chapter, and a member of Weber Shandwick’s Washburn Child Guidance Center pro bono account. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications and English from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota.
