Thompson & Co. Public Relations Announces New Promotions
Thompson & Co. Public Relations announced four women leaders will take on new roles. Ariel Walsh-Amand and Ally Day will help lead the agency’s executive strategy, and Bri Kelly and Kailee Wallis will contribute to the agency’s senior management team.
“These four each bring a unique and valuable skill set to the agency, and they continuously roll up their sleeves and deliver results,” said Jennifer Thompson, president and CEO of T&C. “Each of these women started at T&C as an intern or entry-level account coordinator, and I’m so proud and eager to see how their leadership will shape the future of the agency in their new positions.”
Each promotion helping uplift the agency and its clients are detailed below.
Walsh-Amand, while already an expert in onboarding new employees, accounting and managing employee benefits, among many other skills developed over eleven years at T&C, will further contribute to the overall strategic direction and decision-making of the company as COO.
Day brings ten years of T&C experience in leading client successes to the agency’s executive strategy team with her promotion. Day will further develop T&Cs client services practice with a focus on client-agency relationships, retention and continuity.
Kelly excels in client communications and account leadership after nine years at the agency. As she continues to deliver results for clients, Kelly will also take on an increased role as mentor for T&C’s management team.
Wallis is a founding member of T&C’s digital team, and she has largely contributed to it being T&C’s fastest-growing department. Having helped create the path for digital services offered at the agency, Wallis will lead the digital department in mediums like graphic design, video, photography, social media strategy, and more.
