Shannon Thornton

Senior Account Executive

I serve as Senior Account Executive at Peppercomm where I support clients in business to business and consumer-facing media relations and communications campaigns. This includes developing and implementing strategic media relations programs, expanding clients’ expertise through thought leadership opportunities, and creating and editing content such as bylined articles, press releases, and marketing materials.

Prior to working at Peppercomm, I worked at Stanton where I was an Account Executive working with clients in the financial sector, business to business, and technology. Among the clients I worked with closely are TD Ameritrade, Warren Financial Service, and Carl Marks Advisors.

I also have experience handling crisis communications, securing speaking opportunities for executives at high-profile conferences and events, and inserting clients into trending news stories through opportunistic outreach. I have worked with clients in finance, higher education, technology, philanthropic programs, corporate social responsibility, travel, and real estate. Additionally, I was the Hermes Creative Awards 2017 Platinum Winner for leveraging a series of investor surveys, media relations, and media responses on behalf of TD Ameritrade.

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations from Montclair State University.
