Each of them has played a critical role in delivering innovative strategies that catapulted our clients’ narratives into the spotlight. “Kayla, Shauna, and Keilan represent the next generation of PR mavens. They have our complete confidence as they undertake greater responsibilities,” DeVincentis adds.


Furthermore, Southard Communications extends a warm welcome to Alexandra Wilson, who joins the team as Account Coordinator. “Alexandra’s fresh perspectives and enthusiasm are the perfect additions to our dynamic team as we undertake new challenges in the evolving PR landscape,” according to DeVincentis.


The journey began three decades ago when Bill Southard saw the potential to craft compelling stories that resonate with audiences worldwide. “Reflecting on the past 30 years, it is clear that our strength lies in our ability to adapt, innovate, and lead amidst changing tides,” notes Bill Southard. “It’s an honor to celebrate this anniversary by recognizing the team whose dedication and talent have been central to our journey.”


With a rich history as its foundation, Southard Communications stands poised to embrace the future and the next generation of public relations successes. From traditional media relations to the rise of digital communication and social media, the firm’s ability to foresee trends and adapt to new technologies has cemented its reputation as a leading authority that others look to for insights and leadership.
