Two CLS Strategies professionals honored with PR News Awards

CLS Strategies is proud to announce that two of its professionals have been recognized by PR News for their stellar contributions to the communications field. Ray De Lorenzi and Cristina Rue have been named PR News’ Rising PR Stars 30 and Under Awards honorees. Additionally, De Lorenzi has been named a finalist for the PR People Awards in the Account Director or Supervisor of the Year category. 

“Ray has helped CLS Strategies’ clients navigate some of the highest-stakes public affairs and communications challenges,” said CLS Strategies Partner Andrew Koneschusky. “Our clients and team members look to Ray for his expertise and leadership, particularly when it comes to media relations.” 

During his three years at CLS Strategies, Ray has worked on numerous litigation communications and public affairs campaigns for several Fortune 500 companies. M

Cristina Rue got her start at CLS Strategies as an intern, quickly rising to Managing Associate. In her tenure at the firm she has proven herself to be an agile, hardworking, intelligent communicator and leader, developing trusting relationships with her clients. She has helped raise awareness around human rights in Iran, and managed political communications strategy for leading candidates and political parties in Venezuela and Argentina. 

“Cristina is an exceptional leader at CLS Strategies, and is well deserving of the recognition,” said CLS Strategies Partner Juan Cortiñas. “We are lucky to have Cristina as a trusted advisor to our clients, and we are very confident this honor is the first of many.” 

Ray and Cristina will be honored at PR News’ annual PR People, Rising PR Stars & Top Places to Work in PR Awards Luncheon on December 9, 2015 in Washington, D.C.
