DPR Group Congratulates Claire Kelly for Five Years of PR & Marketing Excellence

PR and marketing agency honors Account Executive Kelly for five years of persistent hard work and dedication to clients’ success   

Frederick, Md.DPR Group, Inc., a full-service public relations and marketing agency serving a broad range of business and technology companies, recently celebrated the five-year anniversary of Account Executive Claire Kelly. The company marked the occasion with a socially distanced luncheon at Distilled Bar & Grill in Frederick, where Claire was presented with a plaque commemorating half a decade of outstanding work for DPR Group’s high-tech clients.

Claire began her career at DPR Group in 2015 as an account coordinator. A fast learner and gifted writer, she quickly rose from her support role to assistant account executive in just one year. Then in early 2018, Claire earned the title of account executive and now expertly manages the strategic and day-to-day PR and marketing activities for a variety of clients in supply chain & logistics, international trade, B2B software, manufacturing, and clean technology. Claire’s drive and willingness to take on new projects led to her directing DPR’s internal HR team, helping with the hiring and new employee training processes.

Dan Demaree, president and CEO of DPR Group, adds, “Over the past five years, Claire has become an integral part of our account management team. Thanks to her competitive spirit and commitment to excellence, she consistently secures high-profile media placements and positive publicity for our clients—going above and beyond to help them reach their goals. She also brings that same enthusiasm to DPR’s own business development efforts, helping us recruit and cultivate new talent for our growing team of PR and marketing professionals. Congratulations to a genuine DPR Group rock star for reaching this milestone, and I can’t wait to see what else you will achieve!”

Claire holds HubSpot Academy certifications in inbound marketing, content marketing, and email marketing. She earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in human relations from High Point University, North Carolina, where she was also member of the college’s Division I soccer team.

Claire said, “I am so grateful to have begun my PR and marketing career with DPR Group. These past five years have provided me with great professional experience, amazing co-workers, and unforgettable clients. I look forward to what the future holds for our growing company.”

At this point in time, Hermes has a well-established brand throughout Europe, but the company does not have the same level of name recognition in North America. So we decided to partner with DPR Group to let U.S. retailers know about the full range of e-commerce services Hermes offers for e-businesses and international expansion. DPR Group did a fantastic job for Hermes at the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE), promoting attendance at our sessions and scheduling media interviews before and after. We’ve never had as much press coverage at any U.S. event before. I highly recommend DPR Group to foreign companies seeking to launch their products and services in U.S. markets.
