2015 Rising PR Stars: Cara Greene, Account Manager, Stanton Communications, Inc.

With five years at Stanton Communications under her belt, Cara Greene’s accomplishments have distinguished her as a leader at her firm and a rising star in the PR industry.

In record time, she advanced to account manager at Stanton Communications, directing the agency’s relationship with Sprint. She doesn’t stop there. Greene also leads the agency’s work in support of Germany-based Fraunhofer IIC. Greene has led media outreach, trade show initiatives and byline article writing and placement on subjects such as fully immersive HD surround sound technologies.

More than just taking direction from senior professionals, Greene has identified and developed new opportunities for her clients; for example, she helped launch a lifestyle outreach effort that gave Sprint leadership positioning with top tier lifestyle media. She also leveraged a joint project between Sprint and the notable outlet Techlicious to conduct a survey of consumers’ mobile preferences, recently published in Forbes.

But with Greene, it’s not all about the pitch. She worked in close coordination with Stanton’s digital/creative team to design and launch a website for the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation as well.

Greene has never forgotten her beginnings. Recognizing the challenges she faced as an intern at Stanton, Greene wrote the intern guide, framed the program, sold both to agency leadership and continues to mentor young professionals in the firm.
