Congratulations to The Village at Castle Pines resident Michelle Balch Lyng, founder/CEO of Novitas Communications in Denver. Lyng has recently received three different awards, causing people to take notice of this young entrepreneur:
The Denver Business Journal’s “Women to Watch” and Bizwomen’s “Headliners in Media, Marketing, and Communication” award. A total of 80 women were chosen in different categories nationally.
Chosen one of ColoradoBiz magazine’s “Top 5 Most Influential Young Professionals in Colorado.”
A winner of the “National Reed Award 2019” for working against oil and gas ballot initiative 112, and for the best Spanish Language Ad 2019 for a ballot initiative.
The criteria for the awards Balch Lyng received were business achievements, community participation and reinvention of programs. They are the “rule breakers, risk takers and news makers.” These remarkable women are expected to continue making news with their creativity and talents.
“As one of a few public relations firms in the region that specializes in corporate communications, issue management, and crisis communications, we recently have worked on some of the country’s largest communications challenges, including the Florida International University bridge collapse, attempts to regulate the oil and natural gas industry out of business, and helping to communicate about the restoration of power to Puerto Rico and Florida following hurricanes,” said Balch Lyng. “It’s a different kind of public relations mandate, and it requires a deliberate, steady hand during high stress situations. That’s why, in addition to being a great place to raise our son, living in The Village feels like such a retreat.”
