EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MWW Group (www.mww.com), one of the top ten global independent public relations firms, announced today that it has been named "2011 Midsize Agency of the Year" by The Holmes Report, one of the public relations industry's leading trade publications. This is MWW Group's second time winning the prestigious accolade, with the firm having also captured top honors in 2008.
The win follows what has been a banner year for the agency marked by significant growth and new client wins. In recognizing MWW Group as its "Midsize Agency of the Year," The Holmes Report credited a "surge of entrepreneurial energy" from MWW Group during a year when MWW CEO Michael W. Kempner spearheaded a management-led buy-out of the firm from parent company Interpublic Group of Companies.
"This award from The Holmes Report is particularly meaningful following what has been an exceptional year for MWW Group and an amazing period in our firm's history," said Kempner. "Our growth is a credit to the tremendous team and clients that we have at MWW. Simply put, it's easy to lead when you have great people and great companies that we are proud to call our partners."
In selecting MWW Group as its Midsize Agency of the Year, The Holmes Report highlighted the agency's industry-leading client retention rate, addition of 75 new clients over the past year, and growth of its established, brand-name clients as factors in the win. Additionally, the growth of MWW Group's consumer and corporate communications practices, key new hires and recent expansions in Dialogue Digital (MWW Group's award winning social media/digital marketing and visual branding practice) were credited as significant factors in MWW Group's selection.
MWW Group will be officially recognized as The Holmes Report's "2011 Midsize Agency of the Year" at the publication's annual SABRE Awards dinner on May 10th in New York City.
