The Influence 100 2016

Not only do major corporations face more intense public and media scrutiny, senior PR executives are expected to deliver more than ever — more strategy, more content, more channels , more creativity and more measurement. Meanwhile, smart CEOs have come to realize a trusted communications advisor is integral to their success — and their organization’s — success.  Read more about the methodology used to identify the Influence 100 here.
