Sachs Media Partner and Chief Operating Officer Lisa Garcia has been named one of the 2022 Top Women in PR nationally by PR News for excellence as a Mentor, reflecting her role as a major contributor to the firm’s success by recruiting and cultivating young professionals.
Among her work as a leader at Sachs Media, Florida’s foremost independent communications firm, Garcia spearheads the firm’s recruitment and retention efforts. She was one of just 15 women around the nation to earn the PR News mentoring honor, which will be presented at a Sept. 7 gala in New York City.
“Lisa is a gift to all who work with her, so it’s especially meaningful that she is being honored for her work mentoring the next generation of professionals,” said Sachs Media President Michelle Ubben. “She not only produces outstanding results for our clients, but she teaches team members by word and example how to deliver outstanding client service and create impactful campaigns.”
