Lola Red Promotes Three Team Members Grows Leadership

Minneapolis-based public relations agency, Lola Red PR, is pleased to announce the promotion of Georgie Stocks to Associate Publicist, and Becca Bijoch and Keegan Shoutz to Senior Publicists.

Stocks is a graduate of Miami University in Ohio, and recently received a degree in law from William Mitchell College of Law. She started on the Lola Red team as a public relations intern in September 2011 and was promoted to Assistant Publicist in January 2012. Her media relations and social media experience make her an asset to the Lola Red team.

“We are thrilled to have Georgie step into a new role at Lola Red PR,” says Alexis Walsko, founder and president of Lola Red PR. “Her talent, energy and hard-working nature make her a perfect fit for the position.”

Both public relations graduates of St. Cloud State University, Bijoch and Shoutz have grown with Lola Red PR, starting out as public relations interns several years ago. Bijoch is Lola Red’s unofficial chief creative officer, and her inventive ideas and willingness to go above and beyond for clients has helped secure new business and achieve phenomenal results for clients. She leads accounts including Creative Kidstuff, Fresh Produce Sportswear, Magic Straws and Parrano® Cheese. Shoutz is Lola Red’s hype man, and his knowledge of the industry and management skills have allowed him to flawlessly execute both public relations and social media campaigns, and exceed clients’ expectations. He leads the Madden’s Resort, Lift Bridge Brewery, and Grand Avenue Business Association accounts.

“As a result of the expertise of both Becca and Keegan, Lola Red has had the opportunity to work with amazing clients on the local, regional and national level,” says Walsko. “The duo rounds out a strong leadership team, and will be responsible for managing accounts, building strategic plans, and assisting in securing new business for the company moving forward.”
