2015 Rising PR Stars: Samantha Wolf, Vice President, Havas PR North America

If you could morph Jennifer Aniston circa "Friends" with the Energizer bunny and Hillary Clinton, the newly emerged human would be Sam Wolf. She is smart, fast, fun and efficient.

"For any tough client situation, Sam always has the solution," says Havas PR Executive Vice President Ravi Sunnak, to whom she reports directly on numerous accounts. "She is always willing to jump into new business, eager to participate in brainstorms, never one to push back and superb at building team camaraderie. She always delivers visible results and exceeds client expectations."

Before joining Havas PR in April 2015, Wolf was a vice president at KCSA Strategic Communications, where she provided strategic counsel and developed and executed media relations programs, product and app launches, promotion activities and CSR-focused campaigns.

Wolf has worked with clients such as KPMG, Deloitte's Financial Advisory Service practice, Mesirow Financial, VSP Vision Care and the Association for Corporate Growth in New York.

Since joining Havas, her work to raise awareness for the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals have been outstanding. In the runup to the adoption of the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Wolf has helped create internal messaging; supported the Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa and the Global Day of Action in July (which she got covered on NPR); brokered interviews for key UN spokespeople with top-tier media (such as Amina Mohamed in Financial Times); and created messaging documents to be used internally and externally by UNF and its partners.
