This week Abernathy MacGregor welcomed its 2018 class of associates. We pride ourselves on identifying great talent at the earliest stages, which we then nurture through extensive training and opportunities for challenging, rewarding work.
This year we looked at the biggest pool of applicants in our history, expanding our search for new associates to more than 130 schools and reviewing over 600 resumes for three open positions. This search produced outstanding new associates: Sydney Gever of Tulane University, Archana Kannan of George Washington University and Kyla MacLennan of Boston College. They are joined by Brandon Jiang of Middlebury College, who interned at Abernathy MacGregor last year. All four are ambitious, hard-working and detail oriented. And last year’s associates (newly promoted to account executive) are glad to have reinforcements, after an intense start to 2018.
As they learn the ropes this summer, our newest team members will help prepare research on and for our clients, track and analyze media coverage, and prepare documents on behalf of both clients and the firm.
