McLean, Va., February 12, 2008 – Young & Associates, a technology public relations agency headquartered in the Washington D.C. area, announced today a new senior leadership team and launched a new Web site: https://yapr.com.
Jennifer MacLeid Qotb, former senior vice president, and Meggan Manson, former vice president, have been named principals of Young & Associates. Jean Young, who founded the company in 1982, is now chairman of the board of directors.
“Since joining the company, both Jennifer and Meggan have played an instrumental role in the agency’s growth, building strong client relationships, mentoring Young & Associates’ employees and leading agency-wide business development activities,” said Young. “They have the skills and tenacity necessary to drive the company in 2008 and beyond.”
The announcement is the first public activity of the 25-year old public relations agency’s ongoing leadership and ownership transition plan with the principals.
“Jean shaped Young & Associates to be a successful and profitable business and Meggan and I look forward to building on the company’s strong team philosophy and results-driven success. In the past six months, we have seen a 50 percent growth in business and look forward to continuing to grow the agency’s service line and client base,” said Qotb.
2007 was a banner year for Young & Associates, as the agency successfully renewed several marquee clients and won industry accolades including two MarCom Creative Awards.
“The renewal of clients – both new and long standing – is a testament to the results Young & Associates delivers,” said Manson. “Many of our services have evolved over the last few years due to the growth of new media and the agency’s increasing local search expertise. Now, our Web site reflects the evolution and impact of the agency and our services.”
The new Young & Associates Web site was designed by SCALE, a Bethesda, Md.-based interactive marketing company.
In addition, the company announced two internal promotions. Eve Sheridan, former account director, has been named vice president, and Jennifer Mirabile, former account executive, was appointed senior account executive.
With a 25-year track record of delivering stellar marketing and media programs to an array of technology companies globally, Young & Associates creative and tenacious team enables clients to reach their target audiences. For more information, please visit https://yapr.com.
