We are proud to announce that our Public Relations Global Network (PRGN) partner in
Hamburg, Germany, Industrie-Contact AG, has been awarded the VDWA Agency Quality Seal 2010.
The agency had to pass through a multistage assessment process including critical areas such as finance, experience, background, positioning and range of services and agency management. Interviews with clients regarding agency performance were also conducted.
"For agency-seeking companies, it is difficult and often disappointing to find the right agency partner out of more than 20,000 communications agencies in Germany,” said Martin Becker, spokesperson of VDWA, the independent directory of communications agencies in Germany. “Many firms look quite professional from the outside, but a closer look reveals a very different picture.
"The quality seal will give more certainty in the selection of an appropriate agency,” Becker continued. “Selected agencies have to match that profile perfectly.”
Industrie-Contact AG is under the direction of Uwe Schmidt, chief executive officer.
The PRGN is comprised of 800 communications professionals working in 40 independent public relations firms in 50 offices across 80 international markets. PRGN member firms have more than $100 million in combined annual revenues. The organization is among the leading public relations networks to harness communications expertise to connect international companies and organizations with individual and culturally diverse societies spanning the world.
