DKY is excited to announce the newest addition to our team, Holly Donato. Holly is recognized by many — both inside and outside local marketing circles — for her seven years in broadcast news, 10 years in corporate and agency communications, and 10 years in non-profit marketing leadership.
She has served many of Minnesota’s leading brands including Cargill, Horton, Delta Dental Plan, 3M Health Care, United HealthCare, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Cray, Bethel University, and Feed My Starving Children. She also brings consulting skills from Colle + McVoy PR (now Exponent) and her own firm, Donato Communications.
DKY and Holly have enjoyed a long partnership; she’s provided PR and content to our clients as an independent consultant for years. That shared trust, combined with her wide-ranging background has led to the launch of Public Relations as a new internal service offering from DKY. Holly’s official title is Director of Content and Public Relations.
Her seasoned work experience and natural fit in our “squirrel” culture will be a great addition to DKY and our clients.
“After many successful years of working with Holly as a client and strategic partner, we are thrilled to bring her expertise, experience and creativity to our staff,” said Brian Dahl, DKY President. “She represents an exciting new dimension to DKY’s service offering that will be a tremendous benefit to our clients and the agency.”
Fun facts: Holly is one of only 91 PR counselors in Minnesota to hold Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the gold standard for strategic practice. Also, she’s equally at home behind the keyboard of a piano or in the garden.
Please join us in welcoming Holly to the DKY team!
