For those of you that don’t know about The Bender Group (truthfully, I didn’t know either but after looking into the firm, I’m glad I know now), a look at their website will let you know exactly who they are. The Bender Group is a Public Relations firm that handles a range of clients, from well-known household brands to smaller start-ups. From small businesses to international food and lifestyle brands. They’ve handled clients, some for over 20 years. So, I’m convinced that this PR firm knows the business and does it exceptionally well.
The CEO and founder of The Bender Group is Stacey Bender. She has over 30 years of experience in Public Relations and Marketing. She began as an Account Executive at Ogilvy and Mather Public Relations, where she later became vice president on accounts, such as Crystal Light and Maxwell House. She founded The Bender Group, has won numerous awards and regularly passes on her knowledge of the field at universities and conferences.
Hayden Hammerling is an Account Manager for The Bender Group. He is also the social media expert. He specializes in media relations, social media, and content development, just to name a few things. He is very involved in both regional and national publicity campaigns.
With all of their proven success in the field of PR, we are incredibly honored that they are taking the time to pass on their knowledge and help the new generation of professionals coming into the field. They will be joining us on March 26th, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. in Nursing 105. Any interested PR, Journalism or students of other majors are welcome to attend. We look forward to hearing from them.
