Top Women in PR 2014: Courtney Quattrini

Courtney Quattrini, Vice President, Marketing Communications, Hill+Knowlton Strategies

Courtney Quattrini epitomizes what successful women in public relations are and seek to be. She is driven, organized, creative and has the endless capacity to adjust to the rhythms of a service oriented environment. Perhaps most important, she is a continuous learner and an inspiring teacher. As a result, Hill+Knowlton Strategies benefits along with their clients. Courtney brings a deep understanding of people — their emotions and their aspirations — to the workplace every day.

Courtney encouraged Hill+Knowlton Strategies to co-found One Billion Acts of Peace, a global citizen’s movement run by the PeaceJam Foundation and Google, intended to tackle the toughest issues facing humanity. It was as a result of her character that Google personally invited her to participate in shaping this initiative. The multi-year program leverages Nobel Peace Laureates including Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Dali Lama to recruit people around the globe to complete one billion acts of peace. Courtney and her team continue to support the program by donating their time and talent to the initiative’s continued development.
