Sara-Beth Donovan Named to Hartford Business Journal's 40 Under 40

AVON, Conn., May 13, 2013 - Sara-Beth Donovan, vice president and director of media for both Mintz + Hoke and Mintz + Hoke Media Only, has been named to the Hartford Business Journal’s "40 Under 40" list for 2013. Each year the publication honors a class of 40 local businessmen and women to represent the ‘best and the brightest’ in the region.

Donovan, who joined the integrated marketing communications firm in 2007, leads a team of media planners and buyers who make sure every invested client dollar is maximized with targeted media programs that exceed the goals of every client. Mintz + Hoke Media Only serves as the lead media partner for several premier national advertising agencies. During the three years of her tenure as director of the media department, Sara-Beth has helped Mintz + Hoke to add nearly 20 new accounts worth millions of dollars, while expanding the scope of the agency’s media planning and buying globally to 46 countries.

“We’re very proud of Sara-Beth’s achievement in earning this recognition,” noted Mintz + Hoke CEO Chris Knopf. “At the same time, we’re hardly surprised that the Hartford Business Journal judges voted her into their '40 Under 40' roster. She has been making a positive impact on Mintz + Hoke for years. Our media practice is a huge asset to our clients and a lot of this has to do with the team that Sara-Beth has nurtured and grown by 30%.”

Sara-Beth herself points to the importance of the team she leads, “I’m so honored to be included among so many industry and community leaders, especially for work I love doing every day.”  

The "40 Under 40" are honored for their business accomplishments as well as their civic contributions. Donovan was cited for helping young talent develop into the next generation of media professionals and for her time involved with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
