“It’s an honor to help build this next iteration of Carmichael Lynch,” Senn said. “There’s so much talent here already, in so many different capacities, that I think we’re in a really unique position to be that ‘agency of the future’ that everyone is trying to be.”

Batliner has served as president, managing director and senior partner of Carmichael Lynch PR division Spong since May of 2010. Prior to that she spent five years as Spong’s managing principal and chief client relations officer. Before joining Carmichael Lynch in August of 2005, she spent seven years as senior vice president with Fleishman-Hillard International Communications. 

“I am proud to work with the team to take the agency to the next level in this ever-evolving marketing landscape with an even sharper focus on our client-centric approach,” said Batliner. “We are poised to help our clients’ businesses succeed as marketing disciplines continue to become more interdependent.”
