Today brings a quick staffing announcement from the people at Fifteen Minutes PR: the firm’s founder Howard Bragman (who you may know for masterminding the Michael Sam story and telling us why LinkedIn’s influencers are valuable) will lead the entertainment and crisis divisions as company Chairman while partner and brands division head Ryan Croy (who you may remember for last week’s guest post on leveraging celebrity for PR) will be Managing Partner.
Croy, who joined the firm shortly after Bragman founded it in 2005, will lead the executive team in his new role while providing strategic oversight on consumer and corporate accounts.
“The Fifteen Minutes brand has come a long way since we opened our doors nearly ten years ago. We have a rock solid team in place that’s one of the strongest I’ve ever been a part of, and look forward to continuing our great work in the consumer and entertainment categories.”
Joining Croy and Bragman are Lisa Perkins, Partner and Talent Head; Victoria Greene, VP of Entertainment Marketing and Events; and Megan Sekkas, VP of Lifestyle Brands and Personalities.
