BROOKLYN, NEW YORK – March 8, 2021– Ditto Public Relations, the high-impact, results-driven public relations firm, announced that Kendall Clark has been promoted to Managing Director and Margaret Huang has been promoted to Senior Vice President. Despite a global recession, Ditto has increased its client base by 30%, hired 50% more staff, and had no layoffs due to COVID-19 in 2020.
Since its founding in 2012, Ditto has operated as a people-first company, putting its employees and clients before profits. Founder Trey Ditto saw that traditional PR firms overloaded junior staff and rarely delivered impactful results for clients. He created Ditto as a different kind of agency, where the staff has the time to be real partners to clients, and senior team members are involved in driving the strategy and doing the work. In 2020, Ditto focused on employee health in the midst of a pandemic, and in 2021, launched a partnership with Holisticly to provide personalized employee wellness benefits (ranging from online yoga classes to healthy food delivery), along with a revamped monetary rewards program. As a result of Ditto’s model, the firm has experienced higher client and employee retention rates.
“When employees are happy they stay and grow,” said Trey Ditto, CEO, and founder of Ditto PR. “Our employees work on no more than four to five client accounts. We have dedicated ourselves to wellness, mental health, and equity here. We are building the smartest and scrappiest PR company in the world, and Margaret and Kendall are living proof of that.”
Clark joined Ditto PR four years ago after working in communications at Natixis Investment Managers. Her knack for problem-solving and compelling storytelling has led her to be an expert strategist amongst fintech industry leaders. Moreover, Clark has pushed Ditto staff to exceed client expectations and has championed employee professional development. In her new role, she will spearhead B2B and B2C communications strategies, coach teams on results-driven communication practices, and facilitate internal communications to continue Ditto’s high levels of employee engagement, happiness, and retention.
“There are no limits to what you can do and learn at Ditto and I think that’s what keeps people inspired and motivated to keep growing. Ditto truly cares about its employees and in turn employees care about the company. The amazing team we’ve built is the main ingredient to our success and without them, we wouldn’t be here,” said Clark.
Huang has been leading PR campaigns and teams for over 20 years. Working in multiple industries within different agency settings from global firms to boutique agencies, and even as an independent consultant, she has found a home at Ditto. As Senior Vice President, Huang will take the lead on new business development, agency marketing initiatives, and act as a strategic advisor across teams and management.
“After being at several agencies, and even working on my own, I can confidently say that Ditto is unique. We’ve built a truly collaborative environment where everyone has a voice and feels supported. This translates into better service for our clients, because we have the ability to be creative and focus on what matters,” said Huang.
With the celebration of its new senior leadership, Ditto is well-positioned to grow in 2021 with its simple and effective business model. Ditto is re-thinking and revolutionizing what PR should look like. It has proven that an “employee-first” work model not only leads to excellent PR campaigns but enhances creativity, exceeds growth expectations, and most importantly, results in a healthy work-life balance.
