NEW YORK – Weber Shandwick, one of the world’s leading global communications and engagement firms, was awarded the No. 1 spot on The Holmes Report‘s 2015 Global Creative Index, the fourth annual list ranking creative excellence in public relations. Weber Shandwick earned the top spot on the inaugural Global Creative Index in 2012 and has remained in the top three every year that the ranking has been published.
The Global Creative Index celebrates the most creative public relations agencies in the world. In developing the list, The Holmes Report takes into account entries and winners from more than 25 public relations award programmes from around the world over a 12 month period. According to The Holmes Report, Weber Shandwick was honoured following “an impressive breadth of award-winning campaigns across numerous markets.”
In The Holmes Report’s list of the top 10 most creative PR campaigns, Weber Shandwick and its clients earned recognition for three campaigns, the most of any agency, for work on the Danone Nutricia Crisis, Yum! Brands World Hunger Relief and Who Framed Master Kong?
“The power of creativity is limitless. It takes bold thinking, bravery, and most importantly, uber-talented employees and incredible client partners to deliver work that makes an impact,” said Gail Heimann, president, Weber Shandwick. “We celebrate this honour with them, and we look forward to continuing to defy the boundaries of creativity and big ideas together.”
