Top Women in PR Award Goes to BRG Founder and CEO, Jane Barwis

We are very proud of our founder and CEO, Jane Barwis for being recognized as a top woman in PR by PRNEWS. The PRNEWS Top Women in PR Awards, highlights supportive, creative and inspiring women in PR who are making an impact on their organization through leadership, innovation and mentoring.  Jane was recognized among 15 outstanding PR leaders in the mentoring category thanks to her longstanding commitment to the professional and personal development among the team at BRG.

Jane has a simple philosophy when it comes to leadership: maintaining a firm commitment to the power of the personal relationship. That is the fuel that has enabled her to drive a growing business over the last 20 years, empower growth among her staff and maintain client relationships that have lasted well-beyond industry norms.

You can call it mentoring, but it’s simply core to who Jane is and how she interacts with her team, her clients and all the BRG alumni who can attest to Jane’s willingness to help, to offer advice and to uncover opportunities for each person’s unique talents.

Recognitions like the PRNEWS Award are meaningful to Jane, but the greatest achievements are reflected in the professional lives of the many talented individuals who have worked for her over the years with many current and former employees rising to the highest levels in their field, achieving personal and professional growth and remaining part of the BRG family for decades. This is real-world mentoring. It will be Jane’s legacy that begins and ends with the power of personal relationships.
