CLS Hires Kish as Senior Media Relations Manager

Meredith Kish has been named senior media relations manager in Carmichael Lynch Spong’s New York office. In her new role, Kish will represent clients Martek Biosciences, H&R Block and Lutron. She will lead teams responsible for developing and executing strategic and creative media relations plans.

Prior to joining Carmichael Lynch Spong, Kish served as a senior account supervisor at Hill & Knowlton in New York. While there, Kish managed and led multiple client teams, including some of the agency’s largest accounts. She coordinated budgets, program goals and media relations strategies, along with planning for tradeshows and events. She helped build and execute public relations plans that gained national coverage and greatly increased sales for her clients. Before Hill & Knowlton, Kish served as an account manager for Fusion Public Relations in New York.

“Meredith’s experience counseling on successful media outreach strategies and her deep relationships with the media will be of great service to our clients,” says Julie Batliner, managing director for the firm. “Her outstanding record, coupled with a drive for creating and executing top tier work, make her a great addition to the New York staff.”

Kish received her bachelor of arts degree in psychology and a minor in communications with a public relations focus from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Ind.
