PRWeek has unveiled its 2018 40 Under 40 honorees, the annual list of U.S. PR pros that represents the next generation of industry leaders.
These individuals are redefining the role of communications, PR, and marketing. In such exacerbated political and social times, these executives display strength, insight, and grace in overseeing corporate reputation and managing crisis situations. They are beyond their years in wisdom and have long and prosperous careers ahead in the rapidly evolving world of PR.
"In this our 20th anniversary year, the 40 Under 40 honorees are effectively a who's who of tomorrow's PR leaders," said Steve Barrett, VP, editorial director of PRWeek. "This year's list of the stars of the future suggests the next generation of PR principals is set to be truly diverse, and it is gratfying to see such diversity amid such talent and potential."
They demonstrate how innovation, client focus, and strong communication can outweigh years of experience. Their ability to build relationships, stay open-minded, and still hone in on the pulse of the times is an enormous achievement at any age. Balancing PR in the volatile and hypersensitive worlds of politics and public affairs, healthcare, and digital communications, these professionals use their communication skills and talent to craft authentic messaging that protects, builds, and inspires.
