Sharon Kersten founded Kersten Communications in 1995, providing comprehensive public relations and marketing services to a broad range of clients.
As a boutique agency, Kersten Communications limits the number of clients, therefore ensuring that each client’s needs will receive personalized attention from a seasoned professional who provides hands-on experience to achieve the stated goals.
“Communicating with Integrity” – This tagline is reflective of Sharon’s commitment to serve small to medium sized companies with personalized, one-on-one service and professionalism. This is something that is all too often lacking when a smaller company or organization retains a public relations firm that relegates them to junior-level associates.
Sharon has a diversified background in the areas of media relations, marketing and event planning, working with both corporate and non-profit clientele — with a particular passion for promoting events. Through the years, several local and national agencies have relied upon Kersten Communications’ expertise for specific projects and events, with the goal of generating media attention on the local, national and international level.
A resident of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Sharon founded Kersten Communications in 1995.
Prior to moving from New York to Florida in 1981, Sharon worked as Marketing Research Analyst for The Wall Street Journal, Marketing Research Manager for Barron’s and Sales Associate for Restaurant Business and Restaurant Design magazines.
Her professional experience in South Florida includes five years as a Public Relations Specialist at Mount Sinai Medical Center; Manager of an in-house advertising agency, overseeing 200+ offices; and Events Manager for Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
She graduated from Brandeis University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature, and received a Master’s Degree in Media & Communications from New School University in New York City.
