Last week, global communications agency, Citizen Relations, won PR agency of the Year – Bronze (2023) at Campaign’s Global Agency of the Year awards. The awards, held in London, recognize and celebrate innovative agencies in the marketing industry from around the world, including the US, UK, Japan and Australia.  

“Our journey over the last five years has been a steady one – the growth is more than impressive and this award is recognition of that,” said Nick Cowling, who was named the agency’s CEO in 2019. “But there are countless others and this win belongs to all our Citizens.”

The win comes off the heels of a historic year of international industry recognition and a year of double digit growth, when the industry was mostly flat or shrinking. Along with being named Strategy’s 2023 PR Agency of the Year – Gold, making PRWeek’s Great Places to Work list in 2022 and 2023 and wins at Cannes, The One Show, the LIA’s and the Webby Awards, Citizen was the top ranked PR agency on two prestigious Creative lists in Canada – the Institute of Canadian Agencies’ Creative Power List and Strategy’s Creative Report Card.

The agency also continues to bolster its leadership teams, including additions of VP Vanessa Birze & Executive Creative Director Mark Mason to the creative team, the appointment of Dominic Cleall as VP, Digital Strategy, Europe and the appointment of Kelly Harrington as SVP, Integrated Solutions. The agency’s Managing Director, Experiential, Kevin Wagman, was recently featured in the Canadian Special Events Magazine’s list of Top 25 Most Fascinating People in Events

The agency has kept the momentum going in 2024 with a new PR AOR win for Nestlé and wins at the Atomic Awards – including the Public Service Grand Prix – PRovoke Media’s Innovation SABRE and North America SABRE Awards, CLIO Awards, Canadian Event Awards and the ADC Awards
