Schneider Associates, a Boston-based public relations and marketing communications agency, last week announced the promotion of Ashley DePaolo to VP. It is the first time in the agency's 31-year history that a former intern has been promoted to VP.
In addition to directing the Home Products Practice Area, DePaolo will continue to manage other key accounts in the banking and health care sectors and assist in new business development for her practice.
DePaolo's career with Schneider Associates began almost a decade ago when she worked as an intern while studying for her Master's Degree in Integrated Marketing from Emerson College.
After graduation, DePaolo joined Schneider Associates as an Account Coordinator. In the last ten years she's worked in several practice areas, including professional services and public affairs.
Schneider Associates specializes in launching and sustaining products, services, companies and communities.
