Julie Batliner, managing director of Carmichael Lynch Spong, was recently named one of PRWeek’s “40 Under 40” for 2011. The report features 40 professionals under the age of 40 who demonstrate “innovative thinking, strong determination, and results that indicate a long and successful career in the PR industry” across agencies, corporations and nonprofits. Batliner will be featured in a special report put out by the publication August 1, 2011.

This acknowledgement is one of the highest honors a young, but successful PR practitioner can receive. PRWeek grants these awards annually to 40 professionals that have demonstrated outstanding leadership, contributed to the advancement of public relations as a profession and “have achieved tremendous feats before they turn 40.” PRWeek created the special reports in 2007 to celebrate those that help draw in new clients, provide excellent results for current clients and set a great example for those who wish to follow their path.

“Julie is one of the most talented, achievement-driven professionals I’ve had the pleasure of working with during my career,” says Douglas K. Spong, APR, founder of Carmichael Lynch Spong and president of parent agency Carmichael Lynch. “Few professionals hold the title of managing director at a mid to large PR firmbefore age 40. Julie’s Midas-touch success is evident in her quick rise within the Carmichael Lynch Spong ranks.”
