LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Natalie Ghidotti, President and CEO of Little Rock-based public relations and content marketing firm Ghidotti, was named one of the Top Women in PR by PRNews in its 2020 class of honorees. The prestigious award recognizes the accomplishments of the most influential women in the communications industry.
“It’s truly humbling to be mentioned alongside such an incredible group of female leaders and public relations professionals,” said Ghidotti. “This award is a testament to the women in our industry that are making an impact through thoughtful, strategic communication, and I’m honored to be included.”
Individuals named by PRNews as Top Women in PR cover the full spectrum of the industry, from internal communications and community relations to crisis management, media relations and beyond. This year’s honorees were recognized for their ability to think outside the box and create new programs that drive business results even in the midst of a global pandemic.
Ghidotti was the only representative from Arkansas among the 89 women across the country named to the list. She founded her firm in 2007 as a sole practitioner. It has since grown to serve clients that span a wide range of industries, including retail, healthcare, professional services, nonprofits and more.
Under the leadership of Ghidotti, the firm expanded its McDonald’s public relations business in 2020 to include serving owner-operators and co-ops in Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Mississippi. The firm was also recognized as a finalist in the 2020 PRNews Platinum PR Awards and earned 15 Prism Awards during the 2020 ARCom Arkansas Marketing and Communications Event.
Ghidotti serves on the board for The Rotary Club of Little Rock, Arkansas’ largest and oldest civic organization, and will serve as president of the club in 2022. She also serves on the Executive Committee for the Public Relations Society of America Counselors Academy, which provides networking and programming for small- to mid-size agency owners across the country.
