Indiana Secretary of State Holli Sullivan to Join Regional PR Firm C2 Strategic Communications

C2 Strategic Communications, a leading regional public relations firm, announced that departing Indiana Secretary of State Holli Sullivan will join the company next month. Sullivan will lead the team’s Indiana business operations, which includes large-scale transportation, infrastructure and energy clients from Indianapolis to Evansville.

Sullivan’s experience as an industrial engineer, Indiana legislator and the state’s chief election official gives her a broad understanding of core issues facing Hoosier communities.

“Our team thrives on telling success stories for clients that are improving and growing communities we serve,” said C2 Strategic CEO Chad Carlton. “Holli’s understanding of advanced manufacturing, workforce development, higher education and infrastructure are directly connected to the work we are doing at C2 to inform and prepare communities for growth.

“Through my career, I’ve learned how effective communications can build bridges,” said Sullivan. “Joining C2 Strategic is a natural extension of my work in connecting varied groups of people for common causes. I’m looking forward to helping share stories that build a stronger, better Indiana.”

Sullivan is an industrial engineer who worked at General Motors and Toyota and started her own consulting business before representing northern Evansville and Newburgh in the Indiana House from 2014-21. In 2017, she co-authored and championed the passage of Indiana’s fully funded 20-year infrastructure plan, then chaired the House Roads and Transportation Committee for four years. As Secretary of State, she developed the Election Integrity Bill which created measures to strengthen election security.

“I’m excited that Holli’s next chapter will be with a trusted communications partner dedicated to building communities,” said Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke. “Holli’s diverse professional background will greatly enhance C2’s service to the Greater Evansville Region.”
“Holli’s commitment to community is well known here and across the state,” said Tara Barney, CEO of the Evansville Regional Economic Partnership. “C2 Strategic has driven community conversations about the I-69 bridge and the Lloyd Expressway —the kinds of projects that bring people together. We are excited that Holli will bring her hometown understanding and connections to her new position.”

C2 Strategic Communications has more than 30 employees across three offices in Indianapolis, Louisville and Lexington. Services include strategic planning, media relations, crisis communications, social media, marketing, advertising, videography and photography. The company’s diverse roster of more than 50 clients includes businesses, government agencies and non-profits that includes:

C2 Strategic is also the leading provider of communications and public engagement services for the Indiana Department of Transportation, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet and engineering firms. The company has built the region’s most experienced communications team to inform and involve citizens in major transportation projects such as new bridges linking Louisville/Southern Indiana and Evansville/Henderson and major highway expansions in Central Indiana and Eastern Kentucky.
