Washington, D.C., Dec. 14, 2016 – Clyde Group, a national communications and public affairs firm, has been shortlisted for PRWeek’s 2017 “Boutique Agency of the Year” award. The PRWeek US Awards honors the fastest growing and highest quality firms, outstanding professionals and campaigns in the country; Clyde Group was named to the shortlist only two years after its creation.
“We’re thrilled that after only two years Clyde Group has been recognized as one of the nation’s most dynamic communications and public affairs agencies,” said Alex Slater, Founder and Managing Director of Clyde Group. “This is the story of relentless client service, deep sector expertise and the constant connection of strategic thought with precise execution. We’re grateful to our clients and strategic partners for our sustained growth.”
The majority of Clyde Group’s organic growth has been in the areas of financial services, healthcare, technology and education. Earlier this year the firm also made its first agency acquisition, merging with ADS Communications. Recent wins include President Obama’s Precision Medicine Initiative at the National Institutes of Health, Navy Federal Credit Union, Entertainment Software Association, American Diabetes Association, African American Mayors Association and the U.S. Chamber Foundation. Last week, Clyde Group announced its partnership with Special Olympics of Washington, D.C. This partnership expands on Clyde Group’s non-profit practice, which includes The Tiger Woods Foundation, The Diatribe Foundation, The Non-Profit Finance Fund and The Charities Aid Foundation.
“Our unofficial motto is that we should be the best agency to work with, and the best agency to work for,” said Slater. “This award has been hard-won by the twenty outstanding professionals at Clyde Group – gathered from the White House, the halls of Congress and the nations top newsrooms. But alongside our experience and strategic sense, it is our culture that is the biggest winner. I couldn’t have hoped to be surrounded by a more enthusiastic, caring and audaciously dedicated community of colleagues.”
The announcement comes on the heels of Clyde Group’s two-year anniversary, which was celebrated last month by hundreds of guests to recognize the firm’s rapid growth. Since its launch in 2014, Clyde Group has grown to a staff of 20 employees, hiring new leaders across each of their verticals. In June, Clyde Group Founder and Managing Director, Alex Slater, was named to PRWeek’s 2016 “40 Under 40” list, which honors PR professionals who are making outstanding contributions to the communications industry.
