FALLS CHURCH, Va., August 5, 2020 – Pinkston, a strategic communications consultancy based in the D.C.-metro area, today announced Mark Reddy is joining the firm as its newest vice president. Reddy will spearhead Pinkston’s expansion into Chicago, building on its existing presence in D.C., Boston, Atlanta and the West Coast.
“Mark is in the midst of an exceptional career focused on global strategic communications, brand development and community engagement,” said David Fouse, partner at Pinkston. “As clients in every industry seek to use their platforms to promote equality and fuel social progress, Mark’s expertise will be invaluable.”
Reddy has spent more than two decades honing his craft of storytelling, implementing vision and leading highly capable teams that help organizations find their voice and emerge as brave brands.
