SUNNYVALE, CA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2015) - Eastwick, an award-winning tech-focused communications agency, today announced that it has promoted Heather Kernahan to president. She previously held the role of executive vice president and general manager.

Kernahan joined Eastwick in 2013 bringing more than a decade of integrated marketing and communications experience to her executive role. From the start of her tenure, Kernahan has focused on the development and execution of a three-year growth plan to transform Eastwick into a tier-one integrated communications firm. Under her leadership, Eastwick has achieved record year-over-year growth, industry recognition, geographic expansion, integrated service offerings, the launch of a CMO-in-residence program and the addition of many blue-chip clients across the technology sector.

"I am excited to be a part of this next phase of Eastwick," said Kernahan. "Next year we celebrate our 25th anniversary, a huge milestone, and there will be an entirely new set of goals to achieve, but I know there is nothing the team can't accomplish. I look forward to collaborating with Barbara on what's next for the agency, our clients and employees."

As president, Kernahan's role will be to guide the Eastwick leadership team and run the business day-to-day, taking responsibility for the well-being of staff and clients. Chief executive officer and Eastwick founder, Barbara Bates, continues to drive long-term strategy in addition to leading culture and people initiatives for the agency. 

"It is rare that a company founder finds the perfect person to help take their vision to the next level, but I've found that in Heather," said Bates. "We are exceptional partners and together have plans to take Eastwick to places it has never been before."
