Teak Media + Communication, a B-Corp certified public relations firm that serves nonprofits and socially responsible companies, welcomed Erin Devost as its new Social Media Manager. In her hybrid role, Devost will serve as an account executive and social media content strategist to clients by creating cohesive campaigns that generate results and drive revenue.
Devost brings a variety of digital marketing and communications experience to the talented Teak team. Prior to Teak, Devost served as a Senior Account Representative at Chapman Cubine + Hussey, a digital marketing firm based in the Washington D.C., where she oversaw projects involving email fundraising, campaign messaging, and digital reporting for nonprofit clients. Earlier this year, Devost was a Media Relations Apprentice at Ludington Media, SEO Analyst at Dealer.com, and Public Relations Assistant to Campaign for Vermont.
“Working for Teak is a career dream come true,” Devost explains. “I am excited to have the chance to work in the PR industry, share the stories of worthy nonprofits and responsible companies, and use media as a force for good.”
Devost’s enthusiasm for her new role is matched by Teak’s gratitude for having her on board. “Finding PR professionals who are passionate about using our craft as a means by which to make a real difference in the world is a treat,” says Jackie Herskovitz Russell, Teak Media founder and president. “We are grateful to have Erin on our team. Her energy and experience are serving our clients well.”
Devost is a New Englander at heart from Burlington, Vermont. She obtained a Master’s degree in Communications from Newhouse at Syracuse University in Spring 2019 and BS from Castleton University in 2014. She currently resides in Boston and hosts the Herp A Derp podcast.
