2014 Rising PR Stars: Emily Meredith

Emily Meredith, Vice President, Communications and Membership, Animal Agriculture Alliance 

Emily Meredith utilized forward thinking and innovative techniques to provide a passionate, smart voice for the Animal Agriculture Alliance. Her talents have lead to enhanced communications and outreach with consumers and media for the Alliance and its broader industry.

She has spearheaded the overhaul of the Animal Agriculture Alliance website, creating a space that is visually appealing, easily navigable and mobile capable. Since the redesign, the Alliance website averages about 1,800 unique views a month. As part of her imperative to deny no media request, the Alliance has seen a seventy-five percent increase in media mentions in the past year — which itself was up over 365 percent from the year before — securing placements with the likes of Al Jazeera, The Huffington Post, NPR, Associated Press, Wired, and even a spot on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
