WASHINGTON, DC, January 8, 2009 – Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide has been named PRWeek's 2009 Editor's Choice and picked above all communications agencies as the one firm positioned to succeed in 2009. The publication cited that Ogilvy PR has "the full package – great service; strong leadership; and a hard-working, straightforward and diligent culture." The recognition is based in part on Ogilvy PR's strong growth in 2008 despite a slowing global economy.
In the last year, Ogilvy PR was awarded business from a mix of industries – public health, consumer lifestyle, energy, technology and travel and tourism, for example. Its account roster grew to include new or additional work for MolsonCoors, Virgin America, SunPower, Chevron, ProChile, the Centers for Disease Control, the National Cancer Institute, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, Nestlé, Ford and DuPont.
The highly awarded Ogilvy PR is regarded within the industry "as one of the most forward-thinking agencies," given its wide range of services, areas of expertise and global presence. With offices in more than 60 cities worldwide, and a strong focus on social media and digital communications, the agency is poised to have an even better 2009.
"This is a tremendous honor and an incredible way to start the new year," said Marcia Silverman, global CEO of Ogilvy PR. "More importantly, however, this is a tribute to all the hard work and paramount client service that our people accomplished in 2008."
