Montagne Powers Bolsters Senior Leadership Team
Montagne Powers, a leading, full-service public relations and strategic communications firm, has strengthened its senior leadership team with the addition of seasoned broadcast and communications professional Lauren Collins-Cline as a vice president. In this role, Collins-Cline will strengthen the agency’s already substantial healthcare experience, support the delivery of top-notch service to the agency’s clientele and provide support for the professional advancement of the account-level staff.
Collins-Cline comes to Montagne Powers with more than 25 years’ experience in media and communications. She was an award-winning radio and television journalist and worked at outlets across New England, including WBZ-AM, WRKO, and as New Hampshire bureau chief of New England Cable News (NECN). Following her time at NECN, she served as a spokesperson for Eversource, New Hampshire’s largest public utility. Lauren most recently held the position of director of communications and public relations at Catholic Medical Center (CMC), where, among other highlights, she led the health system’s internal and external messaging through the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have worked with Lauren in many capacities over the years. She has covered our clients as a journalist and actually was a Montagne Powers client in some of her post-reporting positions. In every instance, we have come to know and appreciate her professionalism, talent and work ethic,” said Scott Tranchemontagne, Partner, “and we are very excited to now call her a colleague.”
“There are few communications professionals in the region that bring as much experience, industry knowledge and creativity as Lauren,” said E.J. Powers, Partner. “In addition to a deep knowledge of the evolving media landscape, her addition further strengthens our healthcare, public affairs, and crisis communications practice areas, helping to support existing clients and driving agency growth.”
Collins-Cline lives in Bedford with her family and is a graduate of the University of Hartford. She was a Union Leader 40 Under Forty in 2018, a member of the Leadership Greater Manchester class of 2016, and is an acclaimed pie baker.
“Scott, EJ, Lisa and Jeff have grown a tremendous team at Montagne Powers,” said Collins-Cline. “I am humbled to be a part of it and excited to tell the stories of our impressive and growing roster of clients.”
In her new role on the Montagne Powers’ leadership team, Collins-Cline works alongside Partners E.J. Powers and Scott Tranchemontagne, Senior Vice President Lisa Cramb, and Vice President Jeff Mucciarone.
