PR firm appoints president
A local public relations firm has named its new president.
Grand Rapids-based Lambert & Co. formally announced this week it appointed Don Hunt to the role.
His responsibilities include strategic planning and execution, operations leadership, client counsel and management.
He has 25 years of experience in public relations, investor relations and issues management.
Hunt joined Lambert in 2000 and became an equity partner in the firm in 2001.
“As Lambert continues to experience rapid growth, we need strong leaders to support and drive the vision for the company,” said Jeff Lambert, founder and CEO, Lambert.
“Don has been with the company and my partner for nearly two decades and has a proven track record of cultivating leadership and innovation across the firm. He is a strong and insightful leader, and there is no one more deserving or better suited for this position.”
Previously, Hunt served five years as the director of communications for DP Fox Ventures, a Grand Rapids-based business management and investment firm.
He has also worked in agency-side PR, serving clients such as Whirlpool Corporation and the former Upjohn Company, now Pfizer, and as a journalist at newspapers, such as the Kalamazoo Gazette, Flint Journal and Chicago Tribune.
“During my time at Lambert, I have been privileged to work alongside some of the very best people in our industry, serving a diverse range of clients across the county,” Hunt said.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to bring new ideas, new energy and an even stronger commitment to supporting the growth of our teammates, clients and partners.”
