COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Next PR, an award-winning, integrated public relations firm, today announced it has been named to the PRNEWS Agency Elite Top 100 list for the third straight year, recognizing the firm's continued innovation to help clients tackle what's next, even in the face of constant change. The recognition comes as the agency gears up to celebrate its 45th anniversary with enhanced services aimed at empowering clients to navigate economic uncertainty.
In addition to the firm being listed on the 2023 Agency Elite Top 100, two Next PR team members recently earned top individual honors for their outstanding strategy, leadership and client results. Senior Lead Pam Anderson was recognized by PRNEWS' Top Women in PR Awards as a Rising Star, and Senior Lead Gabrielle DePietro earned Ragan and PR Daily's Communicators of the Year honors in the PR Team Lead category.
