COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SSPR LLC, an innovative, full-service PR agency, announced Ragan Communications has selected SSPR Vice President Shannon Tucker as an honoree in its 2019 Top Women in Communications Awards program. She has been recognized in the Mentor category, which honors women whose mentoring has helped to elevate and inspire the next generation of leaders.
As Vice President of Media Relations, Tucker is known for her perfect balance of strategic vision and tactical precision, showing and teaching her junior teams how to drive the most return on investment for their clients. She herself provides strategic oversight on many of SSPR's most demanding accounts – unafraid to jump in and offer hands-on support to her teams. Given Tucker's background as a former high school teacher combined with her natural ability to lead, this award win comes as no surprise to those she works with.
"When I started at SSPR, Shannon became my manager and mentor just as I was being added to increasingly demanding accounts," says Abigail Kneal, Coordinator of Media Relations. "She encourages me to find the lessons learned in every situation and use that knowledge to grow, not only as an employee but as a person."
Tucker's natural mentorship style, her contributions to agency growth and her outstanding performance for clients advanced her from Senior Director to VP after only one year with the agency. She and her fellow honorees represent the inspirational, influential and fearless women who have helped shape the communications industry. The program honors female communicators who inspire their peers and are making a powerful impact on their organizations.
"Shannon's management style and business intuition exemplify SSPR leadership," says Heather Kelly, CEO of SSPR. "She's an invaluable member of our team, as both an executive strategist and a mentor to junior staff."
Tucker will be honored at the Top Women in Communications Awards Luncheon that will take place in New York City on March 31, 2020. The program features Spotify's Global Head of Communications Dustee Tucker Jenkins as its headlining keynote speaker.
