Ben Keeton, Senior Vice President at RunSwitch PR, Kentucky’s largest public relations and public affairs firm, has been selected to participate in the Leadership Louisville Center’s Bingham Fellows Class of 2019. Since 1988, Bingham Fellows has provided experienced leaders with the opportunity to examine and recommend solutions to critical issues facing our community.
Bingham Fellows is a program of the Leadership Louisville Center, a nonprofit, member-oriented organization whose mission is to grow and connect a diverse network of leaders who serve as catalysts for a world-class community. Each year, the Bingham Fellows are charged with moving the needle on an important community issue. This year’s theme is “It Takes a Village: Mobilizing Community for Student Success.” The class will work to explore ways the community and businesses can positively impact student achievement and success.
“I’m honored and excited to be a part of this year’s class,” said Keeton. “Education is the foundation for thriving cities and I look forward to working with leaders from across the community to improve opportunities for future generations.”
Keeton leads RunSwitch’s health care practice, serving a wide variety of clients in the life sciences, pharmaceutical, provider and patient advocacy arenas. RunSwitch is proud to have its headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky. The firm is engaged in numerous public affairs campaigns, public relations efforts, and volunteer and philanthropic opportunities to improve the quality of life in the Commonwealth.
