CHICAGO (PRWEB) December 14, 2017
Walker Sands account director and retail technology practice lead, Erin Jordan, has been selected to join the PR Council’s (PRC) first-ever shadow board, PRC Next. Nominees were selected based on their vision for the future of the PR industry and how they plan to contribute to the industry’s evolution as a part of the PRC Next board.
The PRC Next Board is comprised of 12 young leaders from PRC member agencies across the US who will meet quarterly to help address unique opportunities and issues faced by the industry. Members will create their own initiatives and join director meetings to share their insights and bring a more diverse perspective to PRC leadership.
“We’re very proud to be represented on the PRC Next board alongside so many talented and driven young leaders,” said Mike Santoro, president of Walker Sands. ”As PR and marketing continue to evolve, these fresh voices and perspectives will play a critical role in the continual improvement of our industry. Erin has been an invaluable leader at Walker Sands over the last six years and I’m excited to see her contribute to the success of PRC agency members across the country.”
Jordan has played a critical role in Walker Sands’ rapid growth. As Account Director, she leads the retail technology and eCommerce practice area, focusing on the intersection of retail, marketing and technology for B2B companies such as CloudCraze, 1WorldSync, and PointSource, A Globant Company. Jordan has also co-lead the development of thought leadership for the agency, having spearheaded the annual Future of Retail study that has resulted in more than 600 media placements, and generated over 4,000 report downloads. She graduated cum laude from Loyola University Chicago, and is currently an MBA candidate at DePaul University with a marketing focus.
“The traditional PR industry has evolved and it’s important to have ongoing conversations about how we can best serve our clients now and in the future,” furthered Jordan. “At Walker Sands, we believe PR and digital should no longer be considered separate entities and pride ourselves on taking a more holistic approach to our clients’ marketing strategies. I'm honored to bring this mentality to the team, and excited to be a part of these important conversations on a board of amazing industry leaders.”
