Text Request’s Kenneth Burke Named Executive of the Year in 2023 Public Relations and Marketing Excellence Awards

After being named Tech Marketer of the Year locally in 2022, this award marks Burke’s first individual win at the national level.

CHATTANOOGA, TENN., Oct. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Text Request’s Vice President of Marketing, Kenneth Burke, was named Executive of the Year in the Business Intelligence Group’s 2023 Public Relations and Marketing Excellence Awards.

According to the Business Intelligence Group, this awards program “identifies and recognizes agencies and corporate departments alike who accelerate their brand's growth through exposing and promoting great business stories.” Burke was one of only two winners in the “Executive of the Year” category nationwide.

“Kenneth was one of Text Request’s very first hires, and it’s been a true joy to watch his career grow and evolve over the last nine years,” said Brian Elrod, CEO of Text Request. “Kenneth has been a critical part of the team over the years, his inquisitive nature and tenacity are second to none, and we are proud of him for achieving this external validation for his efforts. ” 

Just last year, Burke was also recognized as Tech Marketer of the Year by the Chattanooga Technology Council, as well as one of Chattanooga’s 20 Under 40 by Chatter Magazine. This is his first time earning an award for his individual contributions at the national level.

“I’m humbled, really,” said Burke. “It’s an individual award, but I certainly don’t work alone. Thank you to everyone who has helped, invested in me, and created opportunities over the years. I hope to repay the favor by doing the same for others.”
