by | Jan 10, 2023

Kimball Hughes Public Relations, a national agency specializing in reputation and crisis communications management for the B2B as well as B2C markets, announces the promotion of Eileen Coyne to vice president.

Coyne, who previously served as director of public relations, will take on a new, more strategic role providing overall client management and business development support across the agency.

“Hiring Eileen was one of our best business decisions,” said Rod Hughes, president of Kimball Hughes PR. “Her expertise, industry insights and acumen regarding media relations and content development have greatly benefited her clients and the agency. Eileen is a trusted advisor to her clients, our team and to me personally, and I believe all of us have only begun to benefit from the intelligence, skill and leadership she will demonstrate in this new role.”

A valued member of the team since 2016, Coyne brought to the agency considerable expertise in public relations, as well as in financial services and insurance, the agency’s specialty.

After beginning her career as a journalist in Washington, DC, Coyne has spent 18 years working in corporate communications, consulting and agency roles. Her extensive knowledge of the insurance sector and experience working with companies of all sizes, from Fortune 50 insurers to nonprofits, has led the agency to win awards from nationally recognized institutions while establishing her as a trusted partner for Kimball Hughes PR clients.

Her strategic counsel, writing skills and long-standing relationships with members of the media have played a key role in the agency’s continued trajectory of double-digit growth experienced in recent years.

That strong growth has most recently included the addition of eight new clients across the insurance and technology industries, further solidifying Kimball Hughes PR’s reputation as the go-to agency for insurance, healthcare, association and non-profit communications.

Coyne is a resident of Wynnewood, Pa. and has a bachelor’s degree in communications with a journalism concentration from Loyola University in Maryland. She can be reached at ecoyne@kimballpr.com.
