Ramonna Robinson Promoted to President of GroundFloor Media
DENVER, March 4, 2013 – GroundFloor Media (GFM), a Denver-based, integrated agency focusing on strategic communications, digital and social media strategy, and crisis communication and reputation management, today announced Ramonna Robinson was promoted to president of the agency. Robinson joined the agency in 2005 and has served as vice president and managing partner since 2008. In her new role, she will be responsible for the daily operations of the company and will continue to spearhead new business efforts and the growth of agency’s service lines.
Laura Love, GFM’s founder and previous president, now assumes the role of chief cultural officer, a newly created position. Love will continue to provide vision and leadership for the Denver-based public relations agency she founded in 2001; however, she will step away from the day-to-day operations, allowing her to spend more time focusing on GFM’s team members and client partners. This shift will also enable her to become even more involved in the community.
“For the past five years, Ramonna has been my business partner and is responsible for helping me bring this agency from a fledging group of dedicated PR junkies to one of the fastest growing companies in Colorado,” said Love. “Her attention to detail, business sense and dedication to this company and the community make her the best possible fit for president, and I know she will continue to lead GFM to even greater heights. I appreciate her willingness to accept this role, ultimately allowing me to focus on the elements of the business about which I am most passionate.”
Robinson brings nearly 20 years of experience in the public relations industry to this position. “I’ve been fortunate to work for some great organizations, but none has been as special as GroundFloor Media,” stated Robinson. “GroundFloor Media’s seasoned practitioners make our agency an amazing place to work, and I’m looking forward to continuing to grow the agency and adapt to industry trends as we enter our 12th year of operation. None of us would be at GFM if not for Laura’s vision, and I am extremely grateful for her leadership, as well as Laura’s trust and friendship.”
In addition to her dedication to GFM, Robinson is committed to serving the community. She serves on the board of directors for Colorado Outward Bound School, the Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation and SafeHouse Denver. She also donates time and raises funds for other nonprofit organizations, including Denver’s Road Home and Youth Opportunity Foundation, in her spare time.
Robinson earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism, specializing in public relations, from Butler University and spent a year studying communications at Murdoch University in Western Australia. Robinson is a graduate of Leadership Denver and Leadership Jefferson County.
