Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Calypso Communications, one of the only truly integrated, full-service public relations, marketing, and graphic design firms in Northern New England, recently welcomed Becky Holt as the agency’s newest public relations account executive. Holt will offer media relations, marketing, and social media expertise to Calypso’s growing roster of clients in the renewable energy, utility, and clean technology sectors. Holt recently received an MBA in sustainability from Antioch University.
"In today’s business climate, ‘sustainability’ is more than just a buzzword," said Kevin Stickney, Calypso’s founder. "Becky’s knowledge and experience will strengthen the guidance Calypso provides our clients as more and more of them formally report and promote sustainability initiatives."
Holt’s hire follows Calypso’s release of its latest corporate sustainability report, prepared for Detroit Renewable Energy (DRE). The report—developed, designed, and produced uniquely for DRE—is available online at http://detroitrenewablesr.com/. Holt will support the DRE account with a special focus on the company’s "Education to Life" community engagement project. At Calypso, she will also work with New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility (NHBSR) and Usource, a Portsmouth-based energy procurement company.
Prior to joining the Calypso team, Holt was the assistant director at Green Alliance in Portsmouth, N.H. At Green Alliance, she worked with hundreds of New England companies to develop marketing and branding strategies designed to sustainably grow their businesses. She has also served as marketing manager for EcoMovement, managing social media and community events and identifying new market opportunities.
"I’m excited to join Calypso. The agency understands that integrated communication—through PR, marketing, and creative design—is vital in helping organizations tell their stories to all stakeholders," Holt said. "For our clients in the energy and environmental sectors, it’s especially important as they need to be heard through a lot of greenwashing and clutter."
Holt completed graduated coursework in natural resources at the University of New Hampshire and holds a BFA from Alfred University. A talented artist, she is a volunteer at the Portsmouth Museum of Art where she also serves as curator and sustainability consultant.
