Great Clips Employee Named Twin Cities Titan in Social Media

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 4, 2011—Great Clips, Inc. communications specialist Kasey Skala was recently recognized amongst industry peers as a Twin Cities Top Ten Titans in Social Media 2010. To be eligible for this award, individuals and groups must be nominated by their industry peers. This year saw more than 40 nominations which were voted on by the award sponsor as well as two of last year’s winners.

Kasey was nominated for his work with Minnesota Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). As co-chairs of the communications committee for Minnesota PRSA, Lisa Grimm and Kasey developed and managed the communications strategy to help advance the chapter’s online communications efforts. With information being readily available on a multitude of channels, Lisa and Kasey—along with their committee members, played a vital role in streamlining communications for Minnesota PRSA. Their work allowed the chapter to engage with and provide relevant and beneficial information to current members, attract and engage with prospective members, and ultimately, help advance the chapter and public relations profession.

According to the organizer and sponsor, Just Judy Creative Communications, “The people who made the list have made an impact on Twin Cities society through using social media in the past year. People on this list come from many different backgrounds. Some are independent, others work for large companies, some are in media, public relations, or the arts. One thing that determined the winners is that they are people finding new ways to use social media and pushing the limits of the platforms they are using.”

At Great Clips, Inc., Kasey is responsible for brand and corporate communications, including managing their social media and online communication efforts.
