The latest issue of Washington DC-based communications industry magazine, Capitol Communicator, features an in depth interview with Powell Tate President Pam Jenkins.
Pam is also a President of Weber Shandwick, the global public relations firm that owns Powell Tate. She also has oversight of Weber Shandwick’s Mid-Atlantic operations, which covers its offices in Washington, Baltimore and Atlanta.
Pam told Capitol Communicator that, as head of Powell, she is responsible for the agency’s reputation and growth. She said she is most proud of having led “the transformation of Powell Tate into Washington’s premier public affairs firm and recognized best place to work.”
In the interview Pam offers young professionals the following advice for career success:
- “Surround yourself with people smarter than you;”
- “Never underestimate the power of a simple idea;”
- “Follow your passions so that work is also a pleasure”;
- “And help others along the way.”
The interview is published as “Up Close and Personal: Getting to Know Pam Jenkins, President of Powell Tate and President of Weber Shandwick Mid-Atlantic.” It can be read on the Capital Communicator website.
