DETROIT—A year after technology public relations specialist Airfoil Public Relations formally launched its automotive and manufacturing technology practice, the firm has added Tanisha Leonard and Emily Whitall as account supervisors, under the leadership of vice president Kim Welch, and two new accounts: Gas Station TV and Merillat Industries.
GSTV delivers television programming through TV screens built into gas pumps and chose Airfoil as its agency of record to aid with national expansion. Airfoil is helping GSTV launch its new service and spark media coverage and awareness among gas retailers and advertisers. Merillat Industries, which produces cabinets for the construction industry, selected Airfoil to develop an extensive internal communications program.
Leonard was previously PR manager at GM R*Works, the promotions and events agency servicing General Motors. Whitall joins Airfoil after spending the past six years at Campbell-Ewald, an advertising and marketing communications agency, where she provided PR services for Chevrolet and ACDelco.
