Karen Galanaugh: Delaware Women in Business
Over her years as director of Galanaugh & Company, founder Karen Galanaugh of Wilmington has worked with celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz, actor Christopher Reeve, singer Olivia Newton-John and many other celebrities and Olympic athletes. It’s all in a day’s work of providing public relations and marketing communications for individuals and businesses. The highlight of her career? “I could say things like getting so-and-so on the cover of GQ or on ‘60 Minutes,’ but no, it was a 19-month consultative engagement with a company in Delaware that was having serious stakeholder issues, to the point that business continuance was at risk,” Galanaugh says. “I helped the company leaders open dialogues and communicate with multiple stakeholder groups in a genuine way.” Company saved.
