As the World (of Vegas PR) Turns

It has been said that the one constant in life is change. Recently an editor friend and I were talking about the latest happenings in the world of Vegas PR. Suddenly it seems like there is a bevy of movement and if you ask me, that’s a good thing. She recommended I fill in readers, so media know where to find some of their favorite publicists.

Below is a recap of some of the latest changes in the city’s PR landscape.

Movin’ and shakin’

Rob Stillwell will soon be heading over to NVEnergy as executive of corporate communications. Currently serving as VP of corporate communications at Boyd Gaming, Rob is making the jump from gaming to energy. With all the attention energy has recently received I am certain Rob will enjoy this new endeavor. Rob starts August 3.

Katie Conway is now public relations senior account executive for the folks over at Wicked Creative. We think this a great fit and Wicked Creative owner Stephanie Wilson must be very pleased to have someone like Katie on the team. If you need to reach Katie, you can get in touch at: katie.conway@wickedcreative.com or find her on Twitter at: http://twitter.com/katieconway8.

Alex Acuna once a Light Group superstar, Alex has taken on the communications manager position at Mandarin Oriental which will open this winter at City Center. You can reach Alex at aacuna@mohg.com. There is no doubt Alex will be a great success, Mandarain is a global brand and he will serve that brand well.

To fill the large void resulting in Alex’s departure, Light Group has picked up PR services from Shadow PR. Shadow PR is based in NY with offices in LA and Miami. Michelle Davidson is handling the account, reach her at Michelle@shadowpr.com.

Cheryl Bella, former VP at the Firm Public Relations and Marketing, has moved into the non-profit world as the marketing manager for Three-Square. Three-Square has quickly become one of Las Vegas’ favorite charities and why not? With unemployment through the roof, more families than ever need assistance to get food on the dinner table. You can reach Cheryl at cbella@threesquare.org.

Finally, Melinda Scheckells has taken the editor reigns over at 944. I know this isn’t a PR thing but there are still a few who aren’t sure how to get in touch with Ms. Sheckells. If you need her contact her at melindasheckells@944.com. You can also follow her on twitter at http://twitter.com/Melindasvegas. No doubt Melinda will rock this job, because, hey, that’s what she does.
