Top Women in PR 2014: Nicole Mehr

Nicole Mehr, Director, Corporate Affairs and Communications Europe, Harman International Industries Inc. 

In the three years that Nicole has been in her role, she has increased the visibility of Harman and its brands within Europe significantly. Internally, she initiated a series of company wide events where colleagues form all areas of the business, including professional, automotive and consumer units, were able to come together to view and understand the incredible breadth of technologies and reach of the company they work for. Within the Infotainment Division, Nicole has built sound and mutually valuable business relationships with the world’s leading automotive manufacturers who are some of Harman’s customers.

Harman has established relationships with successful musicians and Nicole has leveraged these and Harman technologies for events. Young, rising musicians are often given the opportunity to perform at PR events, giving them global exposure they would not otherwise achieve. Internally, she finds the time every six months to take on and mentor a new intern. By working with Nicole they gain a fantastic amount of hands-on experience with great support working for a truly global corporation.
