Public relations and marketing agency Antenna Group has recently appointed Anna Cahill Leonard as president. In her new position, Leonard is responsible for client strategy and counsel, as well as overall agency management and growth.
Prior to joining Antenna Group, Anna Cahill Leonard held different key managerial positions including, president and global technology practice leader at Cohn & Wolfe; chief operating officer at Blanc & Otus; managing director and executive vice president for Porter Novelli; and also worked for KVO Advertising and Public Relations (now Fleishman-Hillard) and Hill & Knowlton.
Leonard strengthens Antenna Group’s managerial team, bringing on board strong industry knowledge and skill, based on 25 years of experience in the field.
“One of my passions is to help companies build brands that stand out in the marketplace and drive business results through strategic, inspired public relations and communications,” Anna Cahill Leonard told Everything PR. “As President of Antenna, I will be responsible for client strategy and counsel as well as growth and management of the agency. I am looking forward to continuing to expand Antenna’s position as a leader in energy tech and high-tech communications.”
With her new position, Leonard will also be expanding Antenna’s practice with a new field.
“I am also incredibly excited to officially establish Antenna’s Technology practice, which we will be launching later this year,” she told us.
This is a big move for the company, and critical for further growth, as CEO Keith Zakheim told us.
“The Energy Technology industry is experiencing the convergence of energy and big data, energy and software, and energy and enterprise systems. To truly compete in this environment Antenna needed to have someone like Anna whose experience in energy tech and high tech provides a unique strategic perspective for confronting the new opportunities and challenges in the Energy Technology industry.”
Anna Cahill Leonard is the perfect choice to lead the new practice, as her previous experience has shown. During her career, she led numerous technology clients, like Cisco Systems, Facebook, Oracle, Qualcomm and Saba Software.
