In August, Meredith Kendall took on the role of principal at The Pramana Collective, the consultancy founded last year by tech PR heavyweights Sean Garrett, Brandee Barker, and Brian O’Shaughnessy. Kendall was another significant addition to Pramana, having spent the prior three years leading communications for video-streaming platform Hulu, one of the companies along with Netflix that is reshaping the TV industry. While at Hulu, she reported directly to the CEO as part of the leadership team, managed seven staffers, and oversaw communications efforts including corporate, product, content, advertising, and distribution.
Before Hulu, Kendall led PR for online video startup Break Media (now Defy Media) and served as a talent manager for 19 Entertainment, working on shows such as American Idol. She began her career in the global communications department of Google. Such experience leaves her well-suited for her new job at Pramana, where she will use her innovative communications expertise to counsel clients from the heart of Silicon Valley.
