Seeking nominations for the rising stars in public relations

  • The PR industry is constantly on the lookout for new leaders.
  • Insider is seeking nominations for the rising stars in PR.
  • Submit your nominations by February 10.

Insider is seeking nominations for its third annual list of PR’s rising stars.

We’re looking for ambitious execs with skills beyond basic tasks like monitoring news coverage. We want people with a track record of leadership, who know how to manage teams and coordinate projects, and remain calm in the face of a crisis.

Last year, we featured people who oversee social media channels and influencers. Those skills are still crucial, as social media remains one of PR’s biggest growth areas. However, we’re also looking for professionals that are diving into emerging areas like the metaverse, electric vehicles, and esports.

We particularly want to feature PR pros that embrace data analytics to inform campaign strategies and measure their work. And because of clients’ expectations that their agencies have diverse workforces, we want to hear about people who come from minority backgrounds.

We’re looking for PR pros from agencies and in-house teams who are below the VP level, and based in the US. We’ll consider people’s responsibilities and, in the case of agency staffers, the clients they handle.

We’d like to include no more than one person per company, but we’re open to receiving multiple nominations from the same company.

Submit your nominations using the Google form below. Please send high-res headshots of these individuals here.

The deadline for submissions is February 10.
