Noting that Brian is a member of PRWeek’s 2021 Pride in PR class, reporter Jess Ruderman connected with our new president to hear about his vision for the future of the firm.
His goal: continuing to build a senior team of “exceptional practitioners” with experience counseling new and existing clients through ongoing complicated events in the world.
“Talent is everything. This [role] really gives me an opportunity with all that I know about the industry to start from a blank page and reimagine everything from how we deliver for clients to who and how we hire,” Ellner told PR Week. “Our view is that empowered teams are driven to do exceptional work and build a great firm. We want to be much less hierarchical.”
