COLUMBUS, Ohio (October 22, 2014) – One of the nation’s leading marketing and communications industry publications, PR News, named Fahlgren Mortine account director Hartley Suter to its 2014 Rising PR Stars 30 & Under list. The national honor is awarded to accomplished young professionals ages 30 and under working in corporate, nonprofit, institution, government and agency public relations.
Suter’s outstanding achievements on behalf of clients, exemplary leadership capabilities, creative approaches to integrated marketing and communications challenges, and commitment to her community helped her stand out to the selection committee.
Suter specializes in content marketing, social media and media relations for several clients within the business-to-consumer and business-to-business segments. She joined Fahlgren Mortine as an account associate in 2007. She dedicates time outside the office by serving on the board of directors for the central Ohio chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and as a volunteer for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank and the Boys & Girls Club of Columbus. She is also an active member of St. Matthew the Apostle Catholic Church in Gahanna. Suter earned the Central Ohio PRSA Rising Star award in 2010, and is an alumna of Ohio University’s E.W.
