NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Business Wire’s Chairwoman and CEO, Cathy
Baron Tamraz, has been named to PR News’ prestigious list of Top
Women in PR. The award comes as a great honor and reflection of the
guidance Cathy has provided to Business Wire over the years, from

Productions to launch BizWireTV.

influential figure who sets the tone for what can be accomplished when
working hard, working smart and having the tenacity to look into the

clients. With a pioneering background in corporate news disclosure and
public relations, Tamraz has led the industry in developing innovative
ways to disseminate news and other content for its prestigious clients.
“I am honored to join this illustrious group of women and hope that
Business Wire’s commitment to service and innovation these past 55 years
has served our clients and the industry well,” said Tamraz.
