An executive at Caryl Communications Inc., a public relations firm with a focus on commercial real estate, has earned a promotion to vice president.
The Paramus-based firm on Friday announced the new title for Karen Ravensbergen, who oversees several of its real estate accounts. The promotion comes five years after she joined the firm, before rising to become a manager and then assistant vice president.
“This well-earned promotion reflects Karen’s many talents, her hard work and her commitment to the company,” said Caryl Bixon Gordon, the firm’s president, noting that Ravensbergen brought a strong background in PR when she joined the agency in 2014.
“In that time, Karen developed strong relationships with our team and her clients,” Caryl added. “She has focused on strategies that help the company prosper in today’s ever-changing public relations landscape. Karen is insightful and optimistic, and we couldn’t ask for a better senior executive.”
Ravensbergen spearheads training and new processes, while managing for clients in real estate, architecture, design, financial services, health care and other industries.
“Outstanding client service and great results are most important,” Ravensbergen said. “To achieve this, it is essential to stay current with new technologies and processes, to promote teamwork and collaborate with clients on a regular basis. I’m excited to make a positive contribution to CCI in those areas.”
The Dumont resident earned her bachelor’s in marketing communications at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology and began her public relations career at Marina Maher Communications, according to a news release. She held leadership positions at Cairns & Associates, as account director for beauty and personal care consumer brands, including Avon, Chesebrough-Ponds.
