SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Amendola Communications, a nationally recognized, award-winning healthcare and healthcare IT public relations and marketing agency, welcomes back Kate Donlon, a "founding employee" of Amendola who worked side-by-side with Jodi Amendola to help turn the agency into one of the most successful in healthcare IT. Donlon returns to Amendola as Vice President, and will expand the executive leadership team and the agency's content marketing, inbound marketing and digital marketing services.
"It's such a thrill to have Kate back in the Amendola family, bringing her rare ability to strategically integrate digital, content marketing, public relations and social media into successful campaigns," said Jodi Amendola, CEO of Amendola Communications. "As both a strategic and tactical 'doer,' Kate is a strong complement to our existing team. Our clients will soon be as happy as I am. Kate is, hands down, one of the best marketers—and communicators—with whom I have ever worked."
Donlon is a seasoned communications professional with more than 20 years of experience in delivering high-performance campaigns on both the agency and client side, from start-ups to Fortune 500 organizations. Kate has held numerous marketing and PR leadership positions at Intel Corporation; Mayo Clinic Health System; Ulthera, Inc.; and Aptus Health, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Merck & Co.
Deeply versed in almost every marketing and PR skill set, Donlon specializes in "integrated communications" that weave together PR, digital marketing and social media, content marketing and branding, resulting in highly impactful and evocative campaigns.
Her return to Amendola is a timely one. The agency's portfolio of healthcare and healthcare IT clients has rapidly expanded, sparked by exponential growth within the healthcare IT industry and increased demand for integrated PR and marketing programs that drive market awareness and produce quantifiable outcomes.
"I've always loved working with Jodi Amendola as part of the Amendola team, from the early days as part of an ambitious start up, to what the company is today—the most knowledgeable and experienced agency in healthcare and healthcare IT," said Donlon.
She added, "Career is such a big part of my life that I have to love what I do—and with whom I work! That's easy at Amendola where camaraderie and collaboration are the norm. It's also gratifying to work with an agency that has such a deep and broad reach within the healthcare and healthcare IT media ecosystem. Because of Amendola's extensive media relationships, it's not 'Oh, we'll have to research that editor' because, very likely, one of our team members has just spoken with that editor the day before."
Donlon has an MBA in international management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management, as well as decades of business and cultural experiences throughout Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. This globally-infused background brings an international perspective to her strategic counsel and integrated communications programs. In addition to an MBA, Donlon holds a B.A. in Spanish from Michigan State University.
