Top Women in PR: Heather Kernahan

Heather Kernahan, President, Eastwick

Heather has spent her career immersed in technology and was at the forefront of web development during the dot-com days, working with startups and global brands to translate their presence online. Heather joined Eastwick in 2013, bringing more than a decade of integrated marketing and communications experience to her executive role. From the start of her tenure, she has focused on the strategy and execution needed to transform Eastwick into a tier-one integrated communications firm. Heather has led brand, demand and product marketing at global technology companies and launched one of the industry’s most successful cleantech IPOs.

During Heather’s time with Eastwick, she has changed the way the company sees and positions itself. With her leadership and execution of its three-year strategic plan, Eastwick saw 58% growth over a three-year period from 2012-2015, and was listed on the annual Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. This recognition follows several other notable wins for Eastwick in 2015, including being named North America Technology Agency of the Year by The Holmes Report and 2015 Agency of the Year by the Business Intelligence Group. On top of all that, Eastwick continued client momentum and growth in its recently opened New York City office and across all of its technology verticals.
