Antenna Group, a prominent integrated marketing, PR, and strategic communications agency, has recently welcomed Marisa Long and Kristin Ford-Glencross, two seasoned industry professionals, into its expanding climate and mobility divisions.

These additions signify a strategic enhancement of Antenna Group's leadership in climate technology and reinforce the agency's dedication to assisting companies at the forefront of the clean energy transition through a compelling narrative.

Marisa Long joins Antenna Group as Senior Vice President of Climate & Energy and becomes a member of the Executive Leadership team, contributing her two decades of experience and proficiency in clean energy, the built environment, and ESG/sustainability communications.

She is a recognised strategist adept in media relations, policy and advocacy communications, and integrated marketing, boasting a background that includes both in-house and agency roles.

Before joining Antenna Group, Marisa spent nearly a decade at the Washington D.C.-based global non-profit U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), where she played a pivotal role in shaping the organisation's public image and managing communications for USGBC's LEED green building rating system, the Center for Green Schools, and the renowned Greenbuild International Conference & Expo.

During her time at USGBC and its affiliated Green Business Certification Inc., she spearheaded numerous launches and campaigns for various international and domestic products and programmes.

As a consultant, Marisa has collaborated with prestigious industry leaders, including the Clean Energy Buyers Association (CEBA) and the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), as well as high-profile corporations, real estate developers, architects, and designers. Marisa has previously earned recognition as one of PR News' Top Women in PR.

Kristin Ford-Glencross joins as Vice President of Climate & Mobility, contributing her extensive 13+ years of experience in mobility and technology gained through collaborations with prominent companies such as Audi, Ford, Nissan, and Verizon, among others.

Her role will involve expanding Antenna's mobility practice, leveraging her deep expertise in vehicle electrification, automated/autonomous technology, connected infrastructure, and urban mobility.

With her extensive background working with various organisations in the transportation industry, Kristin is uniquely positioned to guide clients in effectively communicating complex mobility and electrification technologies.

Keith Zakheim, Chief Executive Officer at Antenna Group, emphasised, "The addition of Marisa and Kristin to our climate team underscores Antenna's commitment to maintaining its position as the preeminent agency focused on climate, energy, mobility, and the built environment.

"As we enter the climate's Age of Adoption, we are increasingly being called upon by companies across all sectors to tell their climate stories, and that requires best-in-class domain specialists. Marisa and Kristin certainly fit the bill, and we are excited to harness their expertise as we continue to grow our team of industry-leading climate warriors to advance our clients' missions."
