CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clermont Partners, a boutique strategic communications firm with offices in Chicago, New York and San Francisco, proudly announces that the firm’s founding partner Victoria Sivrais has been named to PRWeek’s 40 Under 40 list, the annual list of U.S. public relations professionals that represents the next generation of industry leaders. Sivrais, 39, was recognized for her leadership in the crises and M&A communications field, executing more than $10 billion worth of transactions both domestically and abroad in the past 12 months.
“I am thrilled to be named to PRWeek’s prestigious 40 Under 40 list, in the company of some of the most talented professionals in the industry,” said Sivrais. “Throughout my 20-year career, I have had the honor to partner with clients as they navigate through transformational transactions and complicated situations, while communicating their strategies to Wall Street to drive long-term valuation. I have had the privilege to work with many talented women and men that have challenged me to be the best strategic communications professional I can be, and I am beyond grateful for their ongoing support.”
Sivrais began her career as a computer programmer and quickly transitioned her path to focus on financial communications when joining Ashton Partners in 2005, where she ascended to a senior leader and trusted counselor in investor relations. When Ashton was sold to FTI Consulting in 2007, she quickly rose to the Managing Director position, culminating as the deputy lead of the Capital Markets practice of the firm’s Strategic Communications segment. She later went on to establish Clermont Partners in January 2015 and today, the firm is one of the only women-led and 100% women-owned communications firms in the country.
“Our firm could not be prouder to see Victoria recognized with this outstanding award she so well deserves,” said Elizabeth Saunders, Partner at Clermont Partners. “This award recognizes her hard work and dedication as a strategic and financial communications professional that has led some of the most groundbreaking deals in the investor relations industry. She is a global maven in her field, and regarded with the utmost respect by clients, fellow IR professionals and her team.”
Sivrais was also recognized for:
- Launching Clermont Partners just before learning she was pregnant with twins, her third and fourth children, and creating a work culture within the firm that fosters a supportive environment for parents
- Being named the youngest Managing Director at FTI Consulting
- Chairing the National Investor Relations Institute’s 2018 Annual Conference
