On its 16th anniversary Dana Summers joins founder Patti D. Hill as partner to take Penman PR through its next phase of growth.

Penman PR solidified a truly differentiated PR business model that delivers success for our team and our clients.

On the anniversary of its 16th year, Penman PR announces the appointment of Dana Summers as its new Managing Partner.

Penman PR was founded by Patti D. Hill in October 2001, during the rubble of the dot-com bust and three weeks after 9/11. Summers joined Penman PR in 2013 as an Executive Director.

"I am delighted to have Dana join me in leading Penman PR into its next stage of growth," said Hill. “Dana has the experience and expertise required to co-lead the company and I am proud to recognize her contributions to our collective success with this promotion.”

Summers, who has a bachelor degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Auburn University, began her career in the hospitality industry, a high-stakes game where alignment of strategy and priorities and customer satisfaction are paramount. She was instrumental in the success of numerous properties such as The Marriott Downtown Austin, The Driskill Hotel, and The Hotel and Conference Center at Auburn University.

At Penman PR, Summers orchestrates sophisticated media and analyst relations campaigns, including the launch of Ambient Clinical Analytics, The Heavy Equipment Exchange, and Tally Energy Services; visibility campaigns for Secured2, Dedicated Computing, and Houston-based medical device developer Procyrion, and thought leadership campaigns for Cerion Advanced Materials and Aculon, Inc., among others.

"This is an exciting time for Penman PR, and I am thrilled to partner with Patti in this management and ownership role," said Summers. "Penman PR solidified a truly differentiated PR business model that delivers success for our team and our clients. I’m honored and excited about co-leading Penman PR into our next phase of growth, where we will combine business and PR innovation to provide even more client value."
