DENVER – Nov. 3, 2023 – Linhart Public Relations, a national communications strategy and engagement firm based in Colorado, is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Kelly Janhunen, vice president and partner, who joined the firm in November 2003.

It’s What’s for Dinner.” brand; Chocolove, the Boulder-based, nationally distributed premium Belgian-style chocolate brand; Cochlear, the life-changing technology for people with profound hearing loss; and Eagle Rock Ranch, raising high-quality beef and fostering sustainable practices at a family-owned ranch in Colorado.

In addition to overseeing client work, Janhunen also is responsible for supporting business development, hiring and professional development for the Linhart PR team, and helping to shape the distinct Linhart PR culture that has made the firm successful for more than 25 years.
