Wingard VP Natalie DeYoung Receives Jacksonville Business Journal’s Women of Influence Award

March 2, 2023

Congratulations to our own Natalie DeYoung, Wingard’s Vice President of Public Relations and Communications, on being recognized as a Woman of Influence by the Jacksonville Business Journal!

Natalie’s dedication, passion and hard work have made her an inspiration not just to her fellow Wingardians, but to everyone she meets and works with in our community.

As a result of her leadership at the agency, Wingard serves as a PR and communications partner for approximately 20 First Coast businesses and organizations — ranging from cultural icons like the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and the Museum of Science & History, to critical nonprofit organizations at the forefront of housing, food security, education, and health.

In addition to that, Natalie regularly shares her time and talent with civic organizations that advance Northeast Florida’s economy. She is a trusted advisor to CEOs, executive directors, founders and community leaders due to her deep understanding of the First Coast’s business landscape. Her guidance is often sought out when companies and organizations have news to share or challenges to navigate.

We’d like to express our congratulations to all honorees, and also shine a light on two of our collaborators and client partners who received recognition this year; Monica Hernandez, Vice President of Global Markets Asset Services at Bank of America / President & CEO of the First Coast Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and Amanda Napolitano, Executive Director of the DONNA Foundation. Wingard commends all of these amazing women for their leadership, community involvement, achievements made among organizations all across Northeast Florida!

Let’s turn your idea into realized potential.
