Maria Isabel Sanquírico, founder and President of Eleven 11 Communications, a Hispanic woman-owned public relations agency headquartered in Orlando, Fla, was recognized by PR News as one of the leading woman communicators in the U.S. who are changing the narrative and public relations landscape. Maria Isabel was one of just 89 women selected across the country for this prestigious recognition.
“In a year impacted and driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, being recognized for telling compelling stories for brands while simultaneously advancing the U.S. cultural landscape is truly an honor,” said Maria Isabel. “My goal has always been connecting, inspiring and paving the way for Hispanics by giving clients the best opportunity to shine and tell their story. The landscape of America has shifted and it’s important for brands to speak and appeal to all of their audiences. I believe that in order for a business to be successful, they must make DE&I a core value or at minimum one of its main objectives,” stated Maria Isabel.
PRNEWS ‘Top Women in PR’ honorees were recognized for their ability to think outside the box, creating new programs that are driving business results in the midst of a global pandemic. According to PRNEWS, “honorees demonstrated significant passion for their work even beyond their (virtual) office doors, often taking on pro bono communications work, in addition to advancing women leadership and/or diversity initiatives, both inside their respective organizations as well as in volunteer capacities outside of office hours.”
Maria Isabel founded Eleven 11 Communications in 2011. Today, Eleven 11 Communications’ clients include a broad spectrum of industries, including higher education, retail, hospitality, nonprofits and locally-owned businesses.
