This is another milestone for the PR agency we founded in 2015, just three years ago; for me and my young team considering we were on the same stage a year ago as the outstanding young PR agency of the year. We have now graced this podium twice in two years, back-to-back, year-on-year in the three years since our establishment. This is an indication that we are driving our vision of being Africa’s most respected PR agency in the right direction and must continue to produce compelling and superior ideas for our clients,” Mr. Aleobua said.
He added that; “We are a young agency, but we continue to touch brands that are way older. This for me gives me joy as we have shown capacity at different levels even under the tightest of schedules. We will continue to develop new initiatives, give insights and as well create mind-blowing innovations that will shape how the end users perceive our clients in line with achieving brand objectives. We will continue to show competence as we offer dynamic, strategic, client-tailored initiatives in our quest for providing unique solutions with unparalleled excellence.”
