2016 Rising PR Stars: Margaret Clevenger, Account Manager, ScoutComms, Inc.

In just two years Margaret Clevenger has become the rock of her firm with an uncanny maturity and talent well beyond her age and years of experience. There is no task too great and no project too large for her to tackle. She joined ScoutComms as the agency’s first account executive and has personally defined the role that is now the model for the four employees that have followed in her footsteps.

Within a year Clevenger was promoted to account manager and now leads the junior staff. ScoutComms is uniquely focused on veterans and military family issues; Clevenger is a military child and has brought that experience to her client work, offering the genuine perspective of someone who intimately understands the issues faced by military families. Her work on diverse clients from leading nonprofits like Blue Star Families and Student Veterans of America to top corporate leaders like GE and USAA has been both impactful and meaningful for the organizations and the populations they serve.
