Marilyn Pearlman, president and CEO of Atlanta Cause Marketing & Public Relations, last month received the prestigious President’s Award from Scott Rogers, president of the Atlanta Lions Club, founded 100 years ago and believed the oldest in Georgia. She was recognized for her assistance in programming and publicity.
Considered one of the longest running public relations firms in Atlanta, the firm started as Pearlman Associates in the late 1970s. Pearlman has been involved with numerous nonprofit organizations: Jewish, international, health and medical, women’s, canine causes and hospitality. Her desire to connect these organizations with businesses who could help them convinced her in 2001 to change her company name.
Currently Pearlman is a board member of the Atlanta Lions Club and Women’s Health First, as well as serving as an active member of the Atlanta Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Connex (Israel Business Connector).
