CLS Hires Prevost as Senor Counselor

Robert Prevost has been named senior counselor in the Minneapolis office of public relations firm Carmichael Lynch Spong. Prevost will provide strategic guidance for client Trane® as well as the firm’s health related clients.

Prevost is no stranger to Carmichael Lynch Spong. He was a senior associate for the agency from 1999 to 2003, working with former clients Harley-Davidson and Maytag, and long-term current clients Cargill Salt and Rapala. Most recently, he served as the public relations manager at North Memorial Health Care and in his seven years there, directed media relations for North Memorial’s expanding health care system and was responsible for leading strategic efforts to support business growth.

“We are excited to have Robert back at Carmichael Lynch Spong,” says Julie Batliner, managing director for the firm. “Robert has a great combination of agency and corporate experience to offer the team. While we know Robert well from his past work with us, he is coming back to us even more experienced and bringing new insight from his recent work on a holistic, strategic team in the health sector.”

Prevost is an active member in the Society for Healthcare Strategy and Market Development. He served as a committee member for the Next Generation Task Force and has presented at its national conference.

Prevost received his Bachelor of Science degree in mass communications from North Dakota State University and his MBA from the University of St. Thomas.
