For more than 18 years, Kim Hunter has led Lagrant Communications by identifying, evangelizing, and catalyzing the two most critical pillars that will support and sustain our industry and effective stakeholder engagement: diversity and education.
As the confluence of digital and mobile erodes the power of borders and gatekeepers alike, possibilities have transformed opportunity to necessity for agencies and brands. A plurality of perspectives and voices is central to success and sustainability in a global market. No one understood this better than Kim.
Like all visionaries, Kim pushed even further to recognize where these new voices should come from, and how to best develop their intelligence. As founder of nonprofit The Lagrant Foundation, Kim has provided countless scholarships, workshops, and mentoring hours to multicultural undergraduates — extending opportunities to talented young people while providing our industry with a brilliant future.
A gifted comms and marketing expert, and a charismatic and strong leader, Kim could have enjoyed a successful career without giving back. But the fact he tirelessly harnessed his insights to better the lives of others makes his place in PR so important.
