The owner of Phillippi-Whitney Communications - Julie Phillippi-Whitney

Julie Phillippi-Whitney

"Share your story with me and I will get it told by the media. There are a few key factors that differentiate me from the thundering public relations herd. I have determination and persistence as well as a hefty contact list filled with national media contacts with whom I have developed a strong rapport over the years. I know how to break down doors to get through to them, but also when to back down. I promise my clients that I won't pitch a story unless it is newsworthy. Reporters have come to know me and trust me and I am not about to cry wolf with them. They know that when I come to them I have a story of legitimate importance and timeliness. The whole point is to get your story heard by the noisemakers of the world."

"I am well-rounded in all facets of public relations and marketing. I am especially skilled at developing cross promotions between synergistic organizations, at procuring sponsorships, as well as developing and managing social media content and strategy for my clients."

"I began my career in Philadelphia as an Account Executive and Media Planner/Buyer on several high profile accounts including Wendy's International and Okidata. Four years later, I left for Columbus, Ohio to become Director of Public Relations for the Hyatt Regency Hotel. After a rewarding tour at Hyatt, I decided to move back to my hometown of Cincinnati and work for an advertising agency as Account Supervisor on America's #1 toothpaste brand. Later, I became Director of Tourism for the Greater Cincinnati Convention Visitor's Bureau, Community Affairs Director for WLWT-TV, and Marketing Development Director for WKRC-TV."
