Lindsay O’Bar, APR
We call her the Employee and Community Whisperer. Lindsay’s hidden talent — suitcase and car packing for trips — is the ideal metaphor for her account management skills: everything in just the right place. Her work focuses on community relations, internal communications and media relations for companies like Kroger, Virginia’s Community Colleges and the Virginia Department of Transportation. By marrying research and strategic thinking, she helps clients thoughtfully engage audiences and the community while driving business results. Over the years she’s helped define Kroger’s community relations strategy and strengthen the company’s presence through media relations and charitable efforts. In 2016, Lindsay led the team that developed the millennial-focused, anti-drunk driving campaign, Who’s Your Driver, targeted to NASCAR fans in Virginia. Lindsay is the president-elect PRSA Richmond and lives in Westover Hills with her husband Ryan and daughter Nora.
