Kurt Ashburn brings two decades of experience to area firm.


Indianapolis-based Hirons has hired Kurt Ashburn as account director to the public affairs team. He comes to Hirons with 23 years of account services experience for a variety of brands, including Ivy Tech, Maytag Commercial Laundry, Delta Faucet Company, Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana and Beckman Coulter Life Sciences. Ashburn oversees client accounts and devises and implements strategic communication plans for clients, while ensuring the public affairs team stays on target to meet client goals.
