Havas PR Staff Scores Major Victory at PR News PR People Awards

Multi-Award-Winning Team Earns Further Honors in Social Media, Media Relations and Account Management, as Well as a Hall of Fame Induction

NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Havas PR North America (@havaspr), the most awarded agency of its size in the U.S., added to its list of superlatives with wins in three categories, a newly elected spot in the Hall of Fame and an additional three honorable mentions at this year's industry-leading PR News PR People Awards.

  • Marian Salzman, agency CEO and noted trendspotter, was inducted into the PR News Hall of Fame. Salzman's widely read and highly regarded annual trends forecast will be the Dec. 12, 2012 (12-12-12) debut publication of Havas PR's e-publishing imprint 120M Books. Also in 2012, Salzman was one of a handful of PR jurors for the Clio Awards, on the international PR jury at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and a judge for the PRWeek Awards in the U.S. (the only person to do all three this year).
  • Dalton Dorne, Havas PR's chief marketing officer and social media maven was named Tweeter of the Year for her excellence in boosting the overall tweeting and social media presence of the agency (which, in large part thanks to Dalton, was recently named the third-most-social agency in the world by Sociagility).
  • Colleen Cleary, vice president and media relations specialist, was honored as the Media Relations Leader of the year for her impressive work with clients including Ford Warriors in Pink and Donna Karan's Urban Zen Foundation.
  • Sara Schwartz, an account executive who is embedded at Coty Inc.'s headquarters three-quarters of each week in service of Havas PR's work for the beauty leader's corporate communications, received Account Manager of the Year honors.

Havas PR staff also received honorable mentions in the following categories:

  • Janene Ferrara, Executive Vice President—PR Professional of the Year: Agency
  • Jody Sunna, Vice President—Account Director of the Year
  • Kate Urbach, Summer 2012 intern, currently a senior at James Madison University—Intern of the Year

"I am supremely proud of the staffers who were recognized by the industry for the great work and amazing results they achieve on a daily basis for our clients," said Salzman. "The Havas PR staff is consistently solid and terrifically innovative—which is one of the reasons we continue to win awards. And this is a particularly exciting time for us, as we build on the momentum we've gained and are fully engaged in our 12 Days of Havas giving initiative, which will culminate with the Dec. 12 launch of 120M Books, a digital imprint that will showcase the agency's innovative thinking and thought leadership."

120M Books, the publishing arm of Havas PR, is committed to independent and futuristic publication of brainfood for the thinking public. "120M" is code for "120 minutes' worth," our recipe for the smart reading meal. The first in a digital series, What's Next? will be released on Dec. 12, 2012 (12-12-12). It will be available digitally at all e-book retailers, including Amazon, Apple and Barnes & Noble. Readers can join the conversation on Twitter with #120MBooks and #whatsnext.

The winners of the PR News PR People annual awards set the benchmark for PR and underscore the outstanding PR achievements made in the past year.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
