Carmichael Lynch President Julie Batliner was named in PRWeek’s 2017 Power List — a roundup of 50 of the communication industry’s most influential PR minds.
PRWeek spoke to Carmichael Lynch CEO Marcus Fischer about Julie’s contributions to the agency:
“The best leaders inspire people to follow their vision. Julie inspires clients, the industry, and most importantly, everyone at the agency.
I’ve known and worked with Julie for 10 years. From my first interaction with her, I could tell she was going to do big things in the industry. And she has.
As president, Julie oversees the leadership and direction for both the creative and PR agencies. Growth has been dramatic on all fronts — new business, organic, headcount, and awards — capped with a win at the 2017 PRWeek Awards for Outstanding Midsize Agency.
Business is personal. What makes Julie a dynamic leader is that she takes it personally. A client’s business challenge becomes her challenge. She cares about the lives of every employee, in work life and home life.
She is a role model. I’m proud to be a champion for Julie. I’m even more proud to have been her boss and to be her friend.”
