Philadelphia has over the years become a hotbed for the communications industry, playing host to dozens of major agencies, small firms and everything in between. And in many ways, it’s young people who are the workhorses.
Welcome to the July 2017 edition of Who’s Next. Every month, Billy Penn publishes an installment of this up-and-comer series, presented by the Knight Foundation, focusing on a different industry or field. Over the last two and a half years, we’ve featured more than 400 of the city’s leaders under the age of 40, from teachers to artists to musicians to chefs.
This time around, we’re highlighting some of the city’s most dynamic advertising, public relations and marketing professionals based on nominations provided by their coworkers and peers. So now, meet the 19 young people who are the next great communicators in Philadelphia (presented in alphabetical order).
