On November 30, 2017, PR News announced their Top Women in PR for 2017, and McDAY’s president, Susan Stipa, was selected as one of the honorees. Nominees were judged on their bold accomplishments and advancements in public relations, including managing crises, developing brand messages, protecting and building brand reputations and creating content for digital platforms.
“I’m both honored and humbled to be selected for this prestigious award by one of the most respected PR distributors – PR News,“ said Susan Stipa. “As a chemical engineer who has always had a passion for communication, it means so much to me to be recognized for the prestige my team and I have achieved for our clients through highly technical public relations. It’s also personally special to me, as I continue to focus on building McDAY into a company where different backgrounds and skillsets can still “talk the talk” with our life sciences and engineering-focused clients, making sure they receive recognition for the significant value they provide to their industries.”
“This is a well-deserved nomination! Susan is already a winner in our minds,” Liz Guiney, Global Marketing Communications Leaser for Gore PharmBio Products. “Our team values her strategic insights and excellent counsel.”
PR News, originally founded in 1954, and recently integrated into the Cision Comms CloudTM this year, focuses on media outreach and empowering communication firms to engage with over 3,000 news and media outlets in more than 170 countries.
