Account Executive, DCI Group
At just 24, Caitlin Fisher has been immersed in a variety of projects—from PR to marketing to advertising. She has overseen media relations campaigns for some of the leading law and professional service firms in the U.S., garnering impressive coverage in bellwether media, securing marquee speaking engagements and placing bylines in top trade publications.
To highlight HBC’s involvement in hot-button legal issues, Fisher helped conceive of a panel discussion that brought together high-profile securities attorneys (including a former SEC Commissioner) to discuss the legal issues in the movie Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. She produced an event that included a screening of the movie, a dinner and post-dinner panel discussion that went off seamlessly.
Fisher also serves her community by working as director of PR and marketing for Young Professionals in Foreign Policy, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that helps train and equip its 10,000 members to become the foreign policy leaders of the future and inject a millennial perspective into the foreign policy dialogue.
App she can’t live without: “Parkmobile has totally revolutionized parking in DC—eliminating the need to carry around quarters (and has probably saved me countless parking tickets).”
What inspires your PR career? “Working in PR affords me the opportunity to be on the front lines of the ever-evolving media. I love being a part of the news cycle and helping people stay informed and engaged. One of the most rewarding parts of my job is having someone mention an issue on which I am working in casual conversation. Whether they agree or disagree, feel impassioned or are indifferent—it is inspiring to know PR drives the dialogue and gets people thinking critically about the world around them.”
