Raleigh, NC – As Sinclair continues to grow, the company is excited to announce its newest addition to the team. Kailey McSwain, a recent Appalachian State graduate, joins Sinclair Public Affairs Firm as an account manager. In this role, Kailey specializes in social media management, media relations, and graphic design.
Kailey was initially brought on board in April of 2020 as a communications and graphic design intern while completing her degree in public relations from Appalachian State University. She transitioned to full-time upon graduation.
“I am so grateful to start my post-graduate career with such a phenomenal company,” said Kailey. “I have loved being able to exercise and hone the skills garnered from my education. Although I haven’t been here long, I have already learned so much.”
While at Appalachian, Kailey took an interest in crisis management and has expressed enthusiasm for the opportunity to advance her knowledge in this field.
