Amy Calhoun was recently picked to lead operations at the D.C. headquarters of public relations firm Stanton Communications Inc.

Mrs. Calhoun, 31, was promoted from vice president to managing director of the D.C. office. Her new position includes working with existing clients while supervising client services and the 14 employees at the office.

“It’s really an exciting time to be taking on this responsibility, since Stanton is growing at a successful rate,” she said.

Stanton, with $4.2 million in annual sales and an office in Baltimore, opened an office in New York last year.

Mrs. Calhoun first joined the agency in 1998, working as an account executive for a year and a half before being hired by General Electric Co.

She served as a communications manager for GE for a year and a half before returning to Stanton to head up the firm’s technology practice.

Part of her work upon returning included helping to develop a proprietary communications software, called the “matrix communications planning process,” the firm uses for clients.

In 2002, Mrs. Calhoun also was appointed to the board of directors for the Washington, D.C., Technology Council, a group that promotes technology companies in the area.

Though she has a strong background in the technology industry, Mrs. Calhoun said she has spent the past four years widening her client base by doing communications for companies such as Pepco, Sprint, Connectiv, W.L. Gore & Associates and Bombardier Transportation.

“Being involved in the development stages of the matrix model allowed me to work with other clients and learn how to exceed their expectations,” she said.

Agency President Peter Stanton said he expects Mrs. Calhoun to expand its presence in the Mid-Atlantic region.

“Amy is an important part of the firm, and she has demonstrated her leadership skills to me through her depth of experience and the easy relationship she enjoys with her clients,” he said.

Mrs. Calhoun lives in Alexandria with her husband, Sean.
