With 2015 nearly here, I wanted to take a brief moment to thank you all – our clients, partners, colleagues, and friends – for a remarkable year. You entrust us with some of the most amazing, challenging, impactful, thought-provoking, and inspiring opportunities to serve you. Thank you for giving us the chance to do what we love every day.
A few things to highlight when I look back at 2014:
1. We continue to greatly expand the type of services we’re offering our clients – reflecting a much broader, more integrated marketing mix across the paid, earned, owned and shared ecosystem. We’ve brought in new talent with backgrounds in marketing technology, UX design, SEO, SEM, editorial management, analytics, copywriting, and video production.
2. While storytelling remains at the heart of all we do, we’re helping clients extend that story across a myriad of ways, enabling them to better manage ever-increasing amounts of content, amplify employees’ voices, leverage paid strategies to maximize earned media hits, and more.
3. We engaged with our beloved Seattle community – driving important discussions at key events, providing pro bono services to local organizations that are near and dear to us, and elevating the region’s position on a global stage.
4. Furthermore, we earned some of our industry’s top awards – Ad Age A List (the only PR firm!), Ad Age Best Places to Work, Holmes Report Global Agency of the Year, and PRWeek Best Place to Work. These accolades are a testament to the talent, determination, creativity and general awesomeness of our people.
It’s been quite a year, so thank you. On behalf of all of us at Weber Shandwick Seattle, we wish you a happy and healthy New Year. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2015 and beyond!
