Pittsburgh, PA (July 12, 2017) – Meredith Klein, PR Account Supervisor at BRUNNER, was named to the Pittsburgh Business Times’ 30 Under 30 list honoring leaders in Pittsburgh's business and nonprofit communities who are under 30 years old.

Klein has worked in the Pittsburgh market for more than five years and has seen how her fellow Millennials are driving tremendous growth in today’s business landscape.

“Millennial leaders are having an incredible impact on the ways we work – whether it’s new ways of thinking, new ways to build and operate a business or new ways to create,” said Klein. “I’m excited to see how Millennials will continue to shape our future and leave things better than they found them.”

From media relations to social media to event planning, Klein has extensive expertise leading PR for a wide variety of brands across many different verticals, both B2B and B2C. At BRUNNER, Klein manages the day-to-day PR efforts for two of the agency’s largest clients – Compact Power Equipment Rental and 84 Lumber.

Klein is also a tireless advocate for women in the public relations profession. For the past several years, she has mentored several emerging professionals in the communications industry, helping them establish the foundation necessary to become the next generation’s leaders. Klein is also the current Vice President and President-Elect for the Pittsburgh Chapter of PRSA, after first serving as the Young Professionals Chair for two consecutive terms. She is also involved in the Strong Women, Strong Girls program and as a Young Professional Board Member of the American Heart Association's Pittsburgh chapter.

“This is well-deserved recognition for one of the most talented PR professionals I’ve ever come across,” said Steve Radick, BRUNNER’s Vice President and Director of Public Relations. “But this is just the start for her. She is a rising star and I anticipate many more awards coming her way over the course of a long and successful PR career.”
