Today was a great day at D&E as we recognized the excellent work of three colleagues. I’m happy to announce their well-deserved promotions – Matt Barkett to senior managing director, Lisa Zone to managing director and Jim Brown to chief financial officer.

Matt has established a national reputation as a crisis communications strategist. He heads our crisis communications practice and applies his experience in media relations, crisis communications, litigation PR and reputation management to help clients confront major crises head-on.

Lisa’s head of our marketing communications practice. She develops and executes integrated marketing communications programs for a wide range of B2B and B2C companies and offers specialty expertise in branding and image campaigns, social media marketing, product launches and more.

Jim works mostly behind the scenes, but his efforts make us a more effective organization and allow us to focus our energies on delivering outstanding client service.

Thanks to Matt, Lisa and Jim for all they do for our clients and our firm.
