Patrick Sutton, Executive Vice President of Paragon Public Relations, has been named a finalist in PR News’ Rising PR Stars 30 and Under. Having been with Paragon since its inception, Patrick has played a crucial role in Paragon’s development.
In his role, Patrick oversees a range client accounts with a five-person team, dedicated to financial technology and financial services firms. In the last year, he spearheaded the communications strategy and management for all stakeholders involved in the Delaware Blockchain Initiative (DBI), worked with the Business Editor of PC Magazine for three months on a 6,000 word cover story announcing 2017 as the “Year of Smart Contracts” and much more. This award is a testament to the hard work he has provided the company and its clients.
“Patrick has come a long way since his days as an intern,” says Simon Hylson-Smith, CEO of Paragon. “This award is thoroughly well-deserved and a reflection of not just his efforts, but those of the entire team.”
The PR News’ Rising PR Stars 30 & Under Awards is an annual program celebrating young professionals whose passion and ingenuity are an inspiration in the workplace and in the communications field. The honorees of 2017 will be recognized at the PR People Awards Luncheon on December 5 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Congratulations to Patrick on his win. We are honored to have him as part of the Paragon team.
