She is charged with client management across multiple accounts, team leadership and high-level media execution.

“Kristin’s strong leadership and business skills have allowed her to quickly make a mark on the public relations world,” said Richard Dukas, DPR president and CEO. “Kristin has been instrumental in helping our technology practice grow from two to 13 accounts. She consistently delivers tremendous results for our tech clients, and we remain impressed by her hard work and dedication to DPR. I look forward to watching her continued success in the public relations field and am thrilled to have her as part of our team.”
Seth Linden joined the DPR financial and professional services team in April 2006 after a successful seven-year career as a broadcast journalist, based primarily in Washington, D.C., covering Capitol Hill. Linden proved himself quickly to be DPR’s top generator of publicity. In his new position, Linden will leverage his extensive experience to support DPR’s financial and professional services clients and enhance the agency’s overall media relations program. He also heads up DPR’s media training/counseling practice.
“Seth is one of the best media strategists I have encountered in my career,” said Dukas. “His background as a reporter, his ability to make complicated stories both easy to understand and newsworthy, coupled with his skill at creating strong contacts at top outlets make him a tremendous asset to DPR. His new role underscores the strong commitment DPR has to media and to securing coverage across our client base.”
