PR Award 2019: public imaging recognised as one of the world’s leading
New York / Hamburg, 23. Januar 2019 – Major success for public imaging: The US
Gramercy Institute, an association of the world’s leading financial institutions, has honoured
the Hamburg-based full-service provider with the prestigious “Financial’s Top 12 Agencies”
award – thereby confirming its status as one of the world’s leading financial agencies in
The jury of industry, marketing and PR experts selected public imaging, the only German
award winner, from a field of 78 nominated agencies. “This important award honours the
world’s best and most intelligent financial agencies, and serves as a measure of the agency’s
excellence and competence for leading financial companies that are looking for first-class
agency services,” said Bill Wreaks, CEO and Chief Analyst at the Gramercy Institute. “These
agencies consciously differ in terms of what they offer. Today, financial PR requires many
specific and highly synchronised services. What these agencies all have in common is a
proven track record of excellence in financial communication,” he added.
The award will be officially presented to public imaging on 29 January at the Gramercy
Forum 2019 in New York (USA). Representatives of leading financial companies including
Bank of America, PGIM and UBS will participate in the event as speakers and guests.
“We are very pleased to once again be honoured with this special global award. We see it
not only as acknowledgement of our market-leading consulting services and network, but
also as motivation to continue with the consistent development and international orientation
of our agency,” explained Arne Pflugrad, Managing Director of public imaging. “The
Gramercy Award sends a strong signal to the industry and underlines our aspiration to take a
leading role far beyond Germany. Particularly when it comes to a clear understanding of
globalised financial markets and topics, precisely recognising the relevant factors for success and effectively interpreting them for our customers, public imaging’s market knowledge,
digital measurement systems and reporting give it a clear advantage,” added Pflugrad.
The industry award will find a place among a number of international prizes: public imaging
already won the Gramercy award in 2018. In 2016, the company received the global PR
Agency Excellence Award from the British asset manager Schroders.
