    Jon Sullivan is director of Corporate Communications for Aflac where he and his team lead the strategic planning and execution of the company's CSR program, philanthropy, external communications and media relations. He is the 2016 and 2017 PR News PR Professional of the Year and the 2016 American Business Award Winner for PR Executive of the Year. He is currently one of five finalists for PR Week’s 2019 Most Outstanding In House PR Professional of the Year.

    In 2012, Jon received a Gold Cannes PR Lion for his work on the “New Aflac Duck Voice” 2011 campaign. In 2019 Jon received his 2nd and 3rd Cannes PR Lions for his work on My Special Aflac Duck™, a robotic comforting device designed to help children cope with cancer treatments. Unveiled at the Consumer Electronic Show, the duck received overwhelming media attention resulting in more than 1,000 news stories and 2 billion media impressions, winning the Tech for Good Award and Best in Show at CES. It was subsequently named the People's Choice winner at SXSW and listed as one of the 50 Best Inventions of 2018 by TIME Magazine and Best in Show at the North America SABRE Awards for Corporate Responsibility.

    Jon has generated multiple stories on the CBS Evening News, ESPN, AJC and The New York Times. In 2015/2016 he landed articles in USA Today, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and MSNBC regarding Aflac's diverse leadership within a span of three months.

    Jon spent six years in broadcast journalism in Buffalo and served as a spokesman in the administration of Governor George Pataki. In 2017, Sullivan authored an article for PR News titled “Getting Better at Doing Good: How Aflac Transformed its CSR Program.”
