PR with Panache! Strengthens Creative Team with Addition of Ed Tech Editor Chris Piehler

PR with Panache! (PRP), an award-winning, Minnesota-based PR firm focused on the education marketplace, is thrilled to welcome Chris Piehler as the firm’s newest modern-day storyteller.
In his 19 years of magazine experience, Piehler has written and edited for a wide range of consumer and B2B titles including Racquet, The Golfer, Chance, Moving Pictures, and Orthodontic Products. Most recently, he spent three years as the editor of the esteemed K-12 ed tech publication THE Journal, where his work included writing, editing, presenting at conferences, and hosting webinars and custom events.
We are excited that Chris has joined our team to support the continued growth we are seeing with existing and new clients,” said Sue Hanson, PRP’s founder and managing partner. “The education industry marketing channels are becoming more diverse and demand new levels of expertise to maintain effectiveness. As PRP’s Lead Storyteller, Chris brings yet another creative layer to our team, allowing us to deliver the best storytelling, strategic marketing, and public relations results for our client family.”
As PRP’s Lead Storyteller, Piehler will manage all of the firm’s writing and editing projects, from blog posts to whitepapers. A published playwright and stand-up comedian, Piehler has been telling stories his whole life, and looks forward to bringing excitement and a sense of joy to his role at PRP.
Over the past few years, I’ve been so inspired by the ways that technology is transforming education,” Piehler said. “I look forward to supporting our entire client family in telling their ed tech stories in the most engaging, meaningful way possible, whether that’s a timely press release, a story to be published, or a meticulously planned in-person event.”
PR with Panache! was recently awarded the title of education’s best PR firm by EdTech Digest, an honor that we share with our entire team of storytellers. For more than 20 years, PRP has been telling the stories of our education clients, because at the end of the day, what is more memorable than a great story?
