Dawn Daugherty
Dawn DaughertyPresident/CEO

Dawn has been in the publishing industry for over 25 years. During this time she created a subscription agent monitoring business, Subscription Integrity Services, LLC. after 15 years with Special Data Processing/National Publishers Exchange. This dedication alone shows Dawn’s commitment to publishers to provide quality subscribers through managing subscription agents.

Dawn’s prior publishing experience was a devotion of 15 years to acquisition, management and new business development of over 1,000 subscription agents at National Publishers Exchange. She left SDP/NPE as the VP/GM of Publisher Relations and Agency Relations to pursue her own endeavors in the industry.

She since has created Priority One Clearing Services, LLC a well- respected and mature magazine clearing house. Dawn incorporated P-1 in July of 2008 and continues to expand its efforts as the industry changes. She is currently focused on the new acquisition mediums available through digital and on line programs in addition to sponsored / partnership / membership campaigns. P-1 has become a premier subscription agency in the industry.

Dawn has one son, JC who is a Mercer University graduate and helped her to launch Priority One.

When Dawn is not working she enjoys time with her family and golf! But don’t be surprised to find her fishing because that is her true passion!

Cristen Crisci
Cristen CrisciCustomer Service Supervisor

Cristen started working for P-1 in March 2015, and was a natural fit with a strong and diverse background in customer service. Her prior experience ranged from running a business to working in a medical office.

She was born and raised in Western PA, but traded in her skis for the beach life after her son Rowan was born in 2012. She graduated from Allegheny College with a degree in Biology, but her love of the outdoors and traveling brought her to spend the next few years living in Pittsburgh, Seattle, and finally what is now her home of Florida.

Now enjoying living on the beach, Cristen can be found spending time with her family swimming, fishing, kayaking, biking and anything else associated with raising a 3 year old and the outdoors!

Her true passion is her mountain bike, which she races with her family most weekends all over Florida and the southeast states! Florida really does have a mountain bike scene and it’s awesome!
