“These milestones are a testament to our mission to empower meaningful work and thriving relationships as we help our clients unlock the power of influencers,” explains Belle Communication Founder, Kate Finley. “We are thrilled to continue our trajectory of YOY growth as we advance these exceptional leaders.”

As Belle’s first hire, Heather Allen has served across all agency functions from client service to agency operations over her eight year tenure. From helping to create Belle’s seven Core Belle-iefs to building many key agency systems, Heather’s contributions have been paramount in evolving Belle into the success that it is today. As vice president of operations, Heather will continue to be a pillar of the agency, maintaining a sound and scalable infrastructure.

A connector within the Columbus community and public relations industry, Megumi Robinson has proved instrumental in the continued success of Belle’s clients and team. Megumi launched a creative strategy offering and deepened Belle’s bench within executive thought leadership and influencer relations. In 2021, Megumi’s impact expanded to leadership of an additional agency function, leading both the accounts and services divisions.  As vice president of services, Megumi will lead Belle’s account team to empower clients in the continued evolution of PR, influencers and social media as an expert extension of client teams.

With more than 25 years of HR experience, Paula Cohoon joins Belle as director of HR  and the agency’s first human resources team member. Paula will oversee the agency’s people division, championing Belle’s commitment to maintaining a people-first culture. Paula will serve a pivotal role in building on the foundation of Belle’s culture and approach to people while evolving areas such as career pathing, DE&I, recruiting and team connectedness.
