2015 Rising PR Stars: Stephanie Clarke, Account Supervisor, Havas PR North America

In the short time since Stephanie Clarke helped launch Havas PR's Phoenix office, she has not only worked on Arizona and New York City accounts, but she also made trips to Davos, SXSW, the Deep South and many points in between.

The account supervisor's main job: working for one of Havas PR's largest clients, Fox Restaurant Concepts (15 concepts and 28 outlets in Phoenix alone). But Clarke thrives on the diversity of clients that come through her job.

In the first six months of working with Fox Restaurant Concepts, Clarke was the main force behind earning 566 million total media impressions--a 560 percent increase over the previous six months, before Havas became agency of record. It was well above Havas’ goal of 25 percent. Coverage ranged from hyperlocal neighborhood publications and food blogs to Arizona's largest papers and TV stations to regional travel magazines, national industry trades, and major national news and lifestyle publications.

In addition to Fox, Clarke supervises business for the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy Program at the University of Arizona and local nonprofit Camp Soaring Eagle. She is also a main team member on work for Southern coffee shop brand Revelator Coffee Company.
