I am so thrilled to share the exciting news that Karen Addis, APR, has joined the GLA Communications team as our first Senior Vice President. An accomplished PR veteran with more than 25 years of experience, Karen will be based in the DC Metro area and will be helping spearhead our growth in the region.
I first met Karen about 10 years ago when we worked together on the BIO convention. We were brought together by Jeff Joseph, then at BIO, now our client at the Consumer Technology Association. I have great respect for her talents, her dedication to her clients and her team, her deep knowledge of today’s communications landscape, and her strong strategic capabilities. I am confident that she will help GLA continue to provide outstanding service to our clients and to the media as well as help us expand our offerings.
Karen has a successful track record of achieving measurable results for national and international corporations, associations and nonprofit organizations which dovetails perfectly with the GLA mission of being the communications partner of choice for compelling technology brands, trade associations and trade shows. Her experience in the health and science will be instrumental in taking us into new practice areas. As GLA looks to the future, Karen will also play a key role in creating our vision and helping us form strategic partnerships.
