Angela Plank


Hirons, an advertising, public relations and digital agency with offices in Indianapolis and Chicago, has hired Angela Plank as senior account manager.

Angela is a seasoned strategist, communicator and team leader who has spent the bulk of her career working with local governments and nonprofits. During her career, she’s developed a talent for identifying gaps or disruptions in organizations and partnerships and creating custom tools and processes to support systemic changes.

Most recently, Angela directed communications and public affairs for the Indianapolis City-County Council. She created the council’s Budgeting for Equity protocol and hearing process, which centers on the capacity of local government units to stimulate racial equity in the broader community.

At Hirons, Angela manages and oversees communications projects on behalf of major clients. Highly experienced in leading diverse teams, she achieves results by developing powerful strategies, forming key collaborations and devising robust indicators to measure success.

“Angela’s passion and determination are qualities that never go unnoticed. Her ability to effectively strategize, implement and generate results is impressive,” said Jay Schemanske, senior vice president, strategic communications and account services.

Another strength of Angela’s is her dedication to building inclusive environments that prioritize racial equity and gender parity.  She serves on the board of Summit Performance Indianapolis, Indiana’s only women-focused theater company, and is a frequent patron of many of Indy’s live theater companies.

Angela holds a bachelor’s degree in English and theater from Goshen College.
