COLUMBUS, Ohio (May 8, 2019) – Fahlgren Mortine was honored to attend the Holmes Report SABRE Awards ceremony last night at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. As part of the event, the agency was named Corporate/B2B Agency of the Year – an esteemed, national honor.
“We are honored to be recognized by the Holmes Report as its Corporate/B2B Agency of the Year,” says Neil Mortine, President and CEO. “Last year we faced unprecedented changes, while achieving growth for the agency. We are incredibly excited to build upon our successes in 2019 and to continue to provide our clients with industry-leading, integrated services.”
Paul Holmes, founder and chair of The Holmes Group, recognized the evidence of the agency’s success in 2018. After a planned acquisition by Eastport Holdings and consolidation with SBC Advertising, the agency experienced tremendous growth. The Holmes Report highlighted Fahlgren Mortine’s discipline-spanning work including tourism brand development for the country of Dominica on the heels of Hurricane Maria and carbon monoxide safety message delivery for fire safety product company, Kidde. In addition, the agency’s continued success across tourism, economic development and B2B sectors was praised in the Holmes Report Award summary: “The result: Fahlgren Mortine is very much a hybrid business, rather than a firm focused on a single discipline. As such, the Columbus, Ohio-based agency believes it can offer clients the authenticity of PR coupled with the creativity of an ad agency and accountability of a digital shop.”
The Holmes Report SABRE Awards represent one of the most prestigious accolades in the PR industry. The peer-reviewed program recognizes outstanding engagement, credibility and relationship building and this award is evidence of the agency’s depth across B2B and B2C sectors and leadership structure.
