Carmichael Lynch Inc. Names Julie Batliner President of the Company's Public Relations Division, Spong
Oct 5 15
Carmichael Lynch Inc. named Julie Batliner president of the company's public relations division, Spong, as president and founder Doug Spong transitions to the role of president emeritus. Batliner, who has been with Spong since 2005, has landed a long list of new clients, including Arla Foods, Formica Corp., Jennie-O Turkey Store, The Schwan Food Co. and U.S. Bank. She also launched a Client Relationship Management program while simultaneously building the agency's social media capabilities.
In 2010, the agency promoted Batliner, from chief client relations officer, to her most recent role as managing director. Prior to joining Spong, Batliner worked for global agency FleishmanHillard. Batliner will report to Carmichael Lynch CEO, Mike Lescarbeau, and oversee Spong's Minneapolis and New York offices. The move comes about a little more than a year after the PR agency rebranded from Carmichael Lynch Spong, to Spong, to better distinguish the agency from ad shop Carmichael Lynch.
