Ketchum Captures PRWeek's 2014 Campaign of the Year Award, Marking Unprecedented Fourth Win

Firm Wins Honorable Mention for Large Agency of the Year

NEW YORK, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ketchum, a leading global public relations firm, and its work on behalf of Gillette was awarded Campaign of the Year at the 15th-annual PRWeek Awards held last night in New York City. This is the fourth time Ketchum and its clients have received this honor, making it the only firm that has achieved this distinction. In addition to the top award, the agency also received three awards and three honorable mentions for its work on behalf of its clients, and the firm also received the honorable mention in the Large Agency of the Year category.

"We're honored to be recognized alongside Gillette with PRWeek's Campaign of the Year award. This distinction is a testament to the partnerships we have with our clients, as well as the dedication and creativity of our account teams. These collaborations allow us to make a measurable impact on our clients' businesses and deliver break through results," said Rob Flaherty, senior partner, CEO and president of Ketchum.

Of Ketchum and Gillette's Campaign of the Year win, PRWeek editor Steve Barrett noted, "It's not easy to get people to talk about shaving. However, with a powerful and engaging initiative befitting of Superman himself, Ketchum and P&G/Gillette soared above the competition to capture tonight's highest honor." Further, a PRWeek Awards judge noted, "Fully integrated and breakthrough, this campaign made great use of paid, owned, shared, and owned, but did so in an insight-based, smart, and strategic way."
