Atlanta Magazine Lists Catherine Downey As One of The 500 Most Powerful Leaders

For the last several years Catherine Downey has been working alongside other Atlanta leaders to bolster CATMEDIA’s profile. While also finding opportunities to give back to the community. For that reason, it comes as no surprise that she’s been listed by Atlanta Magazine as one of the city’s 500 Most Powerful Leaders, for Marketing and Public Relations in the Professionals sector.

This is the second time Downey has been recognized by Atlanta Magazine. Earlier this year she was also listed in the 500 of Atlanta Magazine’s Top CEOs, coming in at number 55.

With CATMEDIA’s broad project history and Downey’s effective leadership style, the path to success for CATMEDIA has been paved with many successes.


“You’ll notice that each sector also includes a list of Legends. These honorees are the indisputable forces who’ve shaped our city. It is for the acknowledged pioneers in their respective fields, whose names really need no introduction.” – Betsy Riley,  Editor-in-chief of Atlanta Magazine
