Beyond Fifteen Communications Continues to Expand in Early 2016

Leading Public Relations and Social Media Firm Welcomes Two New Hires

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2016) - Beyond Fifteen Communications Inc., ranked as one of the "Fastest Growing Public Relations Firms" by the Orange County Business Journal, four years consecutively, continues to expand in early 2016. The firm is displaying rapid growth, with several new hires in the past six months and an office expansion just last fall. Most recently, Beyond Fifteen has hired two new staff members, Kelsey Lukas and Jaquelin Torres, to assist in executing PR campaigns for the agency's expanding list of clients.

Since launching in 2009, Beyond Fifteen's co-founders, Leslie Licano and Lauren Ellermeyer, have been dedicated to developing an intimate and innovative model of PR and marketing, aimed at taking B2B and B2C brands beyond their 15 minutes of fame. With a growing roster that includes Toyo Tires, AIDS Services Foundation of Orange County, Logomark and Teles Properties, Beyond Fifteen continues to shine in the local Orange County market and develop relationships with brands on the national level.

Lukas comes to Beyond Fifteen from an LA-based firm, where she honed her public relations skills supporting clients in the television, film, music, medical and lifestyle industries. With a bachelor's degree in communications from Pennsylvania State University -- and persistence and drive in her blood -- Lukas' superb communication and media relationship development prowess has helped her secure placements in publications ranging from The Hollywood Reporter to CEO Magazine. A proficient writer, Lukas enjoys creating compelling communications materials to support small- and large-scale projects, such as press kits, news releases, external and internal communications materials and social media banter. Like her colleagues at Beyond Fifteen, Lukas is dedicated to supporting client objectives and ensuring all public relations and social media efforts positively benefit their bottom line.

With a bachelor's degree in communications from California State University, Torres joins Beyond Fifteen after a productive turn at an LA-based PR firm, where she supported clients in both the fashion and lifestyle industries. Through coordinating fashion show logistics, and establishing solid relationships with celebrity stylists, Torres became known for her standout abilities to effectively create high-profile placements for her clients. At Beyond Fifteen, her responsibilities include building and managing media lists, pitching the media and securing client coverage, conducting research and developing content for press and social media. With a true passion for working creatively and producing compelling communications materials, Torres has her sights set on widening exposure and garnering successful results for her new line-up of valued clients.

"We are very excited to welcome Kelsey and Jaquelin to the Beyond Fifteen team," commented Beyond Fifteen co-founder, Leslie Licano. "Both share strong backgrounds in communications and marketing, along with refreshingly positive, client-first outlooks. I have no doubt both will make great additions to our talented staff."

There will certainly be no shortage of projects coming up for Beyond Fifteen's team, which has managed to sharply focus on multiple industries, ranging from technology and luxury brands to consumer goods, technical services, medical device, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, beauty and entertainment.

The brand's steady, six-year evolution into a true industry linchpin -- with specialty areas in social networking, blogging campaigns, media relations and brand building -- shows no signs of slowing in 2016.
