Poston Communications is pleased to announce that Vice President Mikey Mooney has been recognized by the Public Relations Society of America’s Georgia chapter as a 2020 Forty Under 40 honoree. As the organization’s website states, “the Forty Under 40 awards program honors rising stars who excel in professional PR, marketing, advertising and/or social media roles, while also giving back to their industry and community. They’re the people you should know, if you don’t already. If they’re not trending or in the headlines, they are often making sure their clients, companies or products are!” Mooney was honored in a virtual awards celebration on October 15.
“Mikey is an influential leader not only in our agency, but also in the public relations community,” said Dave Poston, CEO and general counsel of Poston Communications. “He consistently achieves results on behalf of clients that are above and beyond, and does it all with poise, confidence and a smile.”
As Vice President at Poston, Mooney leads teams to develop and implement effective communication and integrated business development strategies for clients in highly regulated industries. He identifies creative communications solutions to advance business development objectives by developing brand messaging, leveraging strategic partnerships, generating and cultivating leads with top prospects and securing media exposure in leading national media outlets, in addition to prominent local and trade publications.
Within PRSA Georgia, Mooney serves as the board liaison for the sponsorships and partnerships committee. He has been recognized with the chapter’s Rising Star Award in 2017 and was included among PRNEWS’ Rising PR Stars 30 & Under in 2019. Next year, Mooney will serve as the treasurer for the PRSA Southeast District.
“Mikey is a servant leader, a quality that we champion at Poston in hopes that our team will also encourage our clients and communities to share the same philosophy,” said Monica Smith, president of Poston Communications. “We are so grateful for the ways that Mikey leads us internally and also dedicates his time to advancing the industry through great organizations like PRSA.”
