Shelli Lissick Named One of Ragan and PR Daily’s Top Women in Communications

To bor­row a phrase from the Army: Shel­li Lis­sick does more before 9 a.m. than most peo­ple do all day.

Par­tic­u­lar­ly dur­ing the pan­dem­ic, the ear­ly riser’s inde­fati­ga­ble work eth­ic, can-do atti­tude and roll-up-her-sleeves approach has been more crit­i­cal to the suc­cess of our agency’s clients than ever before.

We’re hap­py to report that Shelli’s amaz­ing con­tri­bu­tions to our clients, firm and com­mu­ni­ty have been rec­og­nized by Ragan and PR Dai­ly: She’s been named one of this year’s Top Women in Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, in the “Dynam­ic Do-er” category.

“The women on this list inspire,” Ragan and PR Dai­ly say. “These influ­en­tial women are mak­ing a sig­nif­i­cant impact in their day-to-day job and career, advanc­ing the pro­fes­sion while accel­er­at­ing growth for their organization.”

We com­plete­ly agree. An inte­gral part of Bell­mont Part­ners’ senior lead­er­ship team for the past 13 years, and part­ner for the past 10, Shel­li leads our agency’s client ser­vice, devel­op­ing strate­gies and process­es for the entire team to fol­low, as well as act­ing as day-to-day con­tact for a num­ber of clients. With her focus on men­tor­ing, empow­er­ment and unwa­ver­ing opti­mism, she also sets the tone for our team approach, result­ing in numer­ous acco­lades, includ­ing being named an Inc. Mag­a­zine Best Work­place for the past three years. Her con­sid­er­able con­tri­bu­tions have helped build Bell­mont Part­ners into one of the top small agen­cies in Min­neso­ta and around the country.

Shelli’s strate­gic think­ing and bias for action have made a major impact on our clients’ suc­cess (and our agency’s abil­i­ty to weath­er the pan­dem­ic), espe­cial­ly over the past year. Because of her deep exper­tise in every­thing from media rela­tions to cri­sis com­mu­ni­ca­tions, she played a major role in guid­ing our clients through the pandemic’s unchart­ed waters, espe­cial­ly in two indus­tries hit excep­tion­al­ly hard: health and travel/tourism. Shel­li has led our team’s response as we’ve mobi­lized around numer­ous cri­sis com­mu­ni­ca­tions and non-cri­sis projects, span­ning near­ly every com­mu­ni­ca­tions discipline.

Shelli’s unflap­pable, get-it-done approach has guid­ed her clients, col­leagues and com­mu­ni­ty through the pandemic’s many chal­lenges, and laid the ground­work for suc­cess in a post-pan­dem­ic world. And she’s accom­plished much of it before the rest of us roll out of bed.

Con­grat­u­la­tions on this well-deserved recog­ni­tion, Shelli!
