“Katlyn and Maggie have been taking on more and more strategic projects in the past year, including digital PR and thought leadership efforts for clients,” said Joel Swanson, APR, president of Risdall Public Relations. “I’m excited to see them continue to excel as account executives, as they focus on greater client relations and building new business.”
Beginning her career as a reporter, Tompkins’ role as account coordinator grew from an internship with Risdall in 2012. The promotion to account executive signals her skill in media relations, excellence in writing, and ability to see how a public relations campaign fits into an overall marketing strategy. In her new role, she will continue to foster client campaigns and begin to explore new business opportunities. Her client list includes Vision-Ease Lens, Help Me Grow and Crown College.
