HONG KONG, June 27, 2014 / PRNewswire — FleishmanHillard was named the 2014 Asia-Pacific Network of the Year at the PRWeek Asia Awards. Hosted by Haymarket Group’s leading industry publication PRWeek, the event honors communicators, agencies and work in Asia Pacific that advances the industry.
This marks the third time FleishmanHillard has been named the Asia Pacific Network of the Year since it was established 13 years ago. The honor builds on the agency’s recent recognition as PRWeek‘s inaugural Global Agency of the Year.
“It’s a thrill to receive such prestigious recognition of our highly collaborative nature, innovative spirit and robust growth across the region,” said Lynne Anne Davis, FleishmanHillard president of Asia Pacific. “This past year has been big in many ways, including the launch of our refreshed brand signaling our evolution as a fully integrated agency. It’s especially meaningful on our 20th anniversary in this region, the fastest growing geography in our company. With 19 owned offices in 11 countries, we are proud to be a network in the truest sense, bound by shared values and clients, where the majority of top accounts are served by several of our APAC offices.”
In selecting FleishmanHillard, PRWeek noted: “2013 was a milestone year for the network with the launch of its refreshed brand proposition: The Power of True. True speaks to the agency’s unique ability to go beyond the traditional definition of public relations to deliver the power of integrated communications solutions. The commitment to deliver on this vision has seen the network grow 16% organically year on year (in Asia).”
In addition, FleishmanHillard’s specialty brand BlueCurrent Group won the Employee Communications Campaign of the Year for its work with Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. (a Johnson & Johnson company). And FleishmanHillard’s work with client Pivotal received a certificate of excellence in the Business-to-Business Campaign of the Year category.
“Our team gives credit for this honor to our clients because our success would not be possible without their generous trust and appreciation,” added Davis. “We also want to thank everyone across the FleishmanHillard network worldwide for championing their Asia Pacific colleagues every day and making our agency such a rewarding place to work.”
