Martha Boudreau, EVP, chief communications and marketing officer at AARP, will be honored by PRWeek at its Hall of Fame gala on December 9 in NYC. According to PRWeek, Boudreau will join “the brightest stars in the industry … at an evening of celebration and inspiration.” Among the five others being inducted into the PRWeek Hall of Fame is Richard Edelman, CEO of Edelman.
PRWeek stated it established its Hall of Fame in 2013 “to recognize those who have made outstanding contributions to the development of the communications industry and paved the way for the modern world of communications that has evolved into one of the most influential and exciting professions.”
Boudreau also has been featured in Capitol Communicator’s Up Close and Personal profile series and was asked who are her personal role models. She responded: “There have been many people from whom I’ve learned important lessons and skills. However, I consider one person to be my true role model — John D. Graham, Chairman of FleishmanHillard. John was instrumental throughout my tenure at FH, and even today I draw on his lessons and advice to guide my leadership and management decisions. John taught me the power of collaboration and teamwork and he showed me how to create it within my own teams. He taught me how to manage a large organization based on shared values and culture and also how to hold people accountable for high performance.”
