LONDON, 7th May – Leading global communications consultancy Ketchum was named PR Agency of the Year at the Creativepool Annual Awards, held in London this week.

With this win, the consultancy became the first ever to win in Creativepool’s inaugural PR category. Ketchum was mainly recognised for its creative approach to communications across its global network, and blending both strategy and creativity to produce meaningful work for its clients.

Ketchum also received the Best PR Campaign award, including both the judges’ and people’s choice, for #CoverTheProgress, on behalf of Discover Puerto Rico.

Barri Rafferty, CEO of Ketchum, said: “It’s been an amazing year for Ketchum. After being named PRWeek’s Agency of the Year for the past 20 years, and nominated for Holmes Report Creative Agency of the Year for the second year in a row, to be recognized on a global creative platform like Creativepool is just testament to our desire to innovate, and to do bold and inspiring work that matters. I’m proud that our global network is wholeheartedly committed to helping our clients connect with consumers and ultimately grow their businesses.”
