(L-R): Jamie Platt, Maxine Aviles and David Wilderotter

HOBOKEN, N.J. (Dec. 13, 2023) — Hoboken-based public relations firm Caryl Communications has promoted three team members, reflecting its commitment to recognize and develop talent from within. Elevations include Jamie Platt to assistant vice president, operations; Maxine Aviles to account manager; and David Wilderotter to senior account coordinator. 

“These promotions are well deserved,” said Sandy Crisafulli, president. “Jamie, Maxine and David are stellar team members and an integral part of what makes Caryl Communications tick. Our company and clients are fortunate to have their support, positivity and talent.” 

  • Platt joined the company in 2017 as executive assistant and served as operations manager prior to assuming the assistant vice president role. She handles a wide range of senior management responsibilities, from spearheading process and technology efficiencies to overseeing the firm’s day-to-day operations. Platt is also a key member of the firm’s client service team.  
  • Aviles re-joined Caryl Communications earlier this year as senior account coordinator, having previously served as account coordinator from 2018-2020. In her new account management role, this seasoned PR professional is leading efforts for clients across several industries, including retail and commercial and residential real estate.  
  • Wilderotter, who joined the Caryl team in 2022 as account coordinator, has proven a valuable utility player in supporting a range of efforts, including client communication, press release planning and distribution, and special projects. His client service responsibilities span healthcare, architecture, residential real estate and others.  

Established in 1984, Caryl Communications has a long history of serving businesses and nonprofits in the greater New Jersey/New York marketplace. “At Caryl Communications, recognizing and developing talent from within is in our DNA,” noted Crisafulli, who herself joined the team in 1992 as a staff writer and evolved through several roles to lead the company. “It’s a true pleasure to advance Jamie, Maxine and David to this next step in their careers. They have bright futures here.”
