Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 26, 2007
Corcoran Associates, an award-winning firm of Business Advisors and Public Relations Experts, has several things to celebrate this holiday season including the return of their Partner, Captain Kristin Corcoran.
"Although she has been missed, we are very proud that Kristin has been on active duty to advance our country's security goals within the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) since 9/11," remarks Gerald F. Corcoran, Managing Partner with Corcoran Associates. "Her return is important to the firm's expanding government practice which includes our General Services Administration (GSA) contract activity, along with state and federal efforts that will further leverage Kristin's multi-agency experience."
Specifically and while on active duty, Captain Corcoran served as the Chief of Staff of Homeland Security Task Force Southeast (HSTF-SE) in the Coast Guard's District 7 headquartered in Miami. In this role, her duties were centered on developing a truly multi-agency DHS/DOD force prepared to respond to mass migration from Caribbean countries. Concurrently, Captain Corcoran worked with Coast Guard and DHS entities to re-shaping the their mission set to increase emphasis on Border and Ports, Waterways, and Coastal Security while meeting performance goals of the Coast Guard's traditional missions.
"Further, Kristin's bilingual skills served her well in the role at U.S. Embassies as the Coast Guard Liaison Officer in Panama and the Dominican Republic, in addition to her contributions on USCG staffs in Puerto Rico and Miami," adds Kelly Isley, Partner with Corcoran Associates. "We are fortunate to have her return since translating this expertise into our global client base will benefit for our growing public relations group. Especially since each of these high profile assignments will compliment our multi-cultural campaigns that are key to the firm's award-winning commercial practice."
