Roop & Co. has welcomed another public relations professional to the team. Maggie Sullivan, a news-obsessed storyteller, will serve as an assistant account executive. Her experience includes news reporting, public relations and internal communications.

Sullivan has experience working in many corners of media. As a freelance reporter for Cleveland.com, she covered council meetings, community events and business news to keep the West Side suburbs informed. Her story ideas have also come to life over the WBEZ Chicago airwaves, where she managed a live public radio newsroom as an intern. Assisting in the marketing department at University Hospitals, Sullivan created compelling promotional content and developed branding plans.

Sullivan is returning to her Cleveland home after earning a bachelor’s degree in communications from Loyola University Chicago. While in school, Sullivan conducted long-term research on the practices surrounding petroleum coke on Chicago’s South Side and frequently contributed to the Loyola Phoenix.
