Chicago-based agency Public Communications Inc. has promoted Wendi Koziol to the role of senior VP.

Koziol, who has been with the Worldcom unit for sixteen years, has provided strategic counsel and account management for many of the firm’s largest and most successful campaigns, representing clients in industries ranging from healthcare to education and cultural institutions.

Her work for the agency has resulted in several awards, including a MarCom National Platinum Award for the Museum of Science and Industry’s “Month at the Museum” campaign, as well as a Brand Builder Award from the Publicity Club of Chicago.

Koziol also leads PCI Cares, a program she helped create that promotes the agency’s involvement in volunteer and charity efforts. That program won a national Communitas Award for Leadership in Community Service.

She joined PCI in 1999 as an assistant account executive.

“Wendi brings her creativity, a commitment to excellence and a passion for client success: whether it’s guiding her clients through complex communications challenges, involving her co-workers in our PCI Cares community service projects or mentoring other team members,” said PCI CEO Jill Allread in a statement. “She exemplifies our firm’s commitment to doing quality work with a purpose, and loving what we do.”
