The accounting and business advisory firm of HORNE LLP recently promoted Kassi Rushing, APR, to the director of people growth and engagement.
Rushing now leads the people growth and engagement strategy for more than 500 team members across the country. The newly formed team is a result of her vision to unite the former communication department and learning and development department to create a director-led team that focuses on the strategic development of fully-engaged, team members who are striving daily to reach their full potential. Rushing was previously the director of communication for HORNE, an $80 million firm.
Prior to joining the firm in 2007, Rushing worked as a corporate communicator for a multi-billion dollar financial institution. She also worked as a development consultant for a national women’s nonprofit organization.
Rushing holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with an emphasis in public relations from Mississippi State University and a Master of Science in Corporate Communication and Public Relations from Mississippi College. She also holds the Accreditation in Public Relations from the Public Relations Society of America.
