CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Metro’s Chief Communications & Marketing Officer Brandy Jones, APR, was honored as a “Changemaker” during the PRNEWS “Top Women” Awards Celebration in New York City on June 4.  
 
Each year PRNEWS, the communication industry’s go-to source for education, inspiration and recognition, honors an elite group of women who represent the best and brightest up and comers, entrepreneurs, changemakers, industry champions, and motivators in the communications industry. 
 
“This year’s Top Women are the trailblazing, ceiling-shattering women making waves within their organizations, whether it’s skillfully navigating a crisis, bolstering a company’s reputation, breaking through to new markets or supporting and mentoring their colleagues.” said Kaylee Hultgren, Content Director of PRNEWS and the host of the program. 
 
Mrs. Jones was recognized for her tenacity, leadership and innovative communication approaches, which has resulted in the transit system growing new ridership by more than 30% and ultimately leading the nation in pre-pandemic ridership recovery. Her efforts also led the organization to rollout out a fresh, bold, new brand earlier this year, while garnering positive national attention for the transit agency from both the media and the White House, including facilitating a transit forum with United States Vice President Kamala Harris.  
 
“Brandy is incredibly deserving of this ‘changemaker’ honor,” said Darryl Haley, Metro’s CEO & General Manager. “She is dedicated to not only being a voice that connects and advocates for our community, but her efforts are also shifting the narrative around the impact of public transit both in our region, and across the country.”
