Andi Perelman, the Pittsburgh Penguins' senior director of new media, has been named a "Rising Star 2019" by The Business Journals (bizjournals.com), the largest publisher of metropolitan business newsweeklies in the U.S.
The national list is compiled annually to honor "a group of younger executives having an impact on how business is done in communities across the nation."
Perelman previously was named to the Pittsburgh Business Times' "30 Under 30" List for 2019.
From her "Rising Stars" bio: "Andi is in charge of the digital-media efforts for the Pittsburgh Penguins, one of the league's premier franchises. Since she started in January 2014, the Penguins have had more interactions on Twitter than any other team - by 7 million over the second-place club. On Instagram, the gap is even larger - 16 million. She describes any ideal day at work as one when 'she's made a fan's day, or week.'"
Perelman, 29, is from Mt. Lebanon. She earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland and a masters from Georgetown University.
