Marvin Singleton, executive vice president and general manager of the Hill+Knowlton Strategies Dallas office, has once again been recognized as one of the most influential business executives in the Dallas-Ft. Worth business community by being named to the prestigious Dallas 500 list for 2017 by the editors of D CEO Magazine.

With more than 25 years of communications and public affairs expertise in the political, nonprofit and corporate sectors, Singleton is one of only six executives recognized in the advertising and public relations category. He recently led H+K communication efforts for Virgin America – work that has been recognized with eight local and national awards for successful media relations, public affairs and digital advocacy initiatives. Over the last three years, Singleton has also been at the helm of the firm’s work in media relations, crisis communications and marketing communications for All Nippon Airways (ANA) and currently lends his expertise to ANA’s recently announced “Welcome to Experience Class™” campaign.

“I’d like to applaud the editors of D CEO for once again recognizing my friend and colleague Marvin Singleton for the Dallas 500,” said Beth Balsam, U.S. president and CEO at Hill+Knowlton Strategies. “Marvin has always impressed me both by how he thinks and what he knows as well as his ability to move mountains to get the job done. Underneath the quiet and calm veneer is the grit, passion and determination that makes his inclusion on this list so well-deserved.”

The Dallas 500 list is an annual special publication by D CEO Magazine, highlighting top executives across more than 60 categories in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. The selection process consists of a nomination period followed by hundreds of interviews and months of research before the list is published. View the complete Dallas 500 list here.
