Rachel Burnard

Assistant Account Executive

Born and raised in metro Detroit, Rachel has a love for the city that led her to work in downtown Detroit after graduation from Michigan State University. When she isn’t spending time in southeast Michigan you can find her all over the globe, from traveling Europe to quiet weekends in northern Michigan or planning her next trip.

Rachel serves Franco’s numerous B2B accounts including automotive and technology, providing media relations and monitoring, content creation, event support and social media.

Prior to joining Franco, Rachel honed her skills and expertise with an internship at Yazaki North and Central America where she created and ran a comprehensive social media campaign, wrote technical and business articles for the internal audiences and refined her research proficiency. In addition, she held internships at Potter Park Zoo and Capital Area Humane Society. During her time at MSU, she served as the strategy account executive for Hubbell Connections, MSU's student-run PR firm and sat on the executive board for the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).

Rachel has a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and a minor in public relations from Michigan State University.
