BERLIN, June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Ketchum Maslov Named Russian Consultancy of the Year
David Gallagher, senior partner and European CEO of leading global communications firm Ketchum, was honored with the Individual Achievement SABRE Award at last week's EMEA SABRE Award ceremony held in Berlin. In addition, Ketchum Maslov was named Russian Consultancy of the Year and the agency picked up another three Gold SABRE Awards plus one In2 SABRE Award for its work on behalf of clients.
Explaining why Gallagher received the Individual Achievement designation, the Holmes Report cited his work to drive growth of Ketchum Europe, his noteworthy communications counseling skills, his deep international experience and, underlying it all, his tremendous contributions to the public relations practice.
In 2015, Gallagher was honored with the Public Relations Consultancy Association's Mark Mellor Award for his significant contributions to the PR industry, and in 2014 he received the Atlas Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Public Relations Society of America.
Reacting to the wins, Gallagher said, "Our approach is to create campaign-leading ideas that come to life across paid, earned, shared and owned media, and nearly all of our winning work embraced that philosophy. We're incredibly grateful for the partnership we have with our clients, who inspire us to take creative risks and experiment with the latest technology. I'm also very honoured to have been recognized as an individual. We work hard at Ketchum and also have a lot of fun; it's always special when a big industry voice recognizes your work and passion."
