Seven Letter Founding Partner Allison Fastow Named to PRWeek’s 2020 “Women to Watch”


Fastow Recognized for her Work, Leadership and Mentorship

WASHINGTON, DC – (March 10, 2020)  Allison Clear Fastow, Seven Letter Founding Partner, has just been awarded one of PRWeek’s highest accolades. Fastow was named to the publication’s annual “Women to Watch” list for her contributions to her clients, her colleagues and her community. Each year, PRWeek honors a group of exceptional women who are shaping the future of communications, and Fastow is among the 2020 class of honorees. Fastow joins a group of inspiring women who demonstrate leadership, creative excellence and a commitment to elevating their companies and the profession. For the last decade, her work for corporate and nonprofit clients has changed lives and helped set Seven Letter apart from its peers. The agency has grown significantly over that time, and in the last year, Fastow has helped guide it through an important merger and full rebranding. Upon the announcement of this recognition, she offered the following comment:

“Our industry is being redefined every day, and recognizing women’s role in driving that change is essential. I’m grateful to be included in this class of hardworking, intelligent women and even more proud of what we at Seven Letter have been able to accomplish as a team over the last ten years. It is easy to be passionate about what you do when you work with clients you believe in and colleagues who inspire you.”

Founding Partner Erik Smith celebrated the honor as well, stating:

“There is no one more deserving of this recognition than Allison. Her drive, creativity, thoughtfulness, and character are foundational to this company. She has helped us grow from a small firm to a leader in our space, and our future is bright because of her leadership. Her example, intellect, and wit inspire all of us to be better, and I’m so proud to call her a friend and colleague.”

Allison will be recognized at an event in New York this summer. You can read Allison’s full bio here, and learn more about PRWeek’s Women to Watch here.
