Meet Cindy

Jan 30, 2020

Tell us a little bit about your background before joining The Key team.

안녕 하세요! Xin chào!

My name is Cindy Huynh, and I'm originally from Battle Creek, Michigan. Fun fact about Battle Creek - that's where Kellogg’s cereal was born.

Whenever anyone asks me how I started my PR journey, I always tell them that it was a wonderful accident. At the time, I was a graduate student at the University of Sydney, studying finance, and was desperately looking for a change of scenery. So, I applied to an internship in London, having no idea what PR was. However, that internship propelled me into what I love doing today.

I speak two and a half languages, English, Vietnamese, and surviving Korean. I try to travel as much as I can and believe that everything is an adventure, whether it's going to a new country or trying a new bus route for the first time.

Describe your work style in five words.

Collaborative, flexible, driven, creative, and adaptable.

What are your favorite kinds of projects to tackle?

I love projects where I can research new topics and industries. I could geek out over new data or stats.

What’s your proudest moment at work (here or elsewhere)?

The proudest moment in my PR career is helping a Key client navigate CES. Not only did we secure several briefings and top business and tech coverage, but I also got to go to Vegas and experience CES first-hand.

What makes you the most excited to be at The Key?

Honestly, it’s working alongside all of my Key colleagues and friends. Everyone here has been so welcoming, kind, and nurturing. I can’t ask for a better team to work with.

Lightning Round:

Favorite office snack?  Gum - sounds weird but, when I get stressed, I like to chew on things, so gum helps me manage my stress.

Badass female role model? It's a cliché, but my mom. She single-handedly raised my sister and me and guided us in becoming the fearless women we are today.

Power song?  Anything Beyonce, Rihanna, and Ariana Grande.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?  Teleportation. It would save me so much money on traveling.

Work with the Best

A lot of complexity comes from an unwillingness to commit to the things that insight and understanding surface.
