Together again: Richardson to join C2 team

Kerri at DomeKerri Richardson, communications director for Gov. Steve Beshear, will join C2 Strategic Communications in July as the firm’s vice president.
After nearly six years as a trusted advisor and communications leader for our Governor, Kerri will provide strategic communications counsel and support for our growing list of clients.
She will be reuniting with C2 President Chad Carlton, who plucked her out of the WHAS-TV newsroom in 2007 to serve on the city communications team for Jerry Abramson, Louisville’s legendary former mayor who is now deputy assistant to President Obama.
Kerri was selected as the 2014 National Communicator of the Year by the National Association of Government Communicators.
She is respected by both newsmakers and journalists for her communications savvy, candor, insight and grace under pressure. That last skill really comes in handy now that she and her husband, Eric, have a year-old daughter, Mallory.
Kerri is joining a talented team of communications strategists that includes Mindy Peterson, Ed Green, Lisa Jessie and Beverly Bartlett. We’re excited to welcome her aboard.

Chad Carlton,

C2 President
