Platform named PR Week’s ‘One to Watch’

We have been recognised by leading PR industry publication PR Week as ‘One to Watch’. The accolade confirms our leading position and signals the strength of the digital media market over the past year.

With our impressive growth rate catching the publication’s eye, Platform debuted in the PR Week ‘Top 150 PR Consultancies’ league table which was published today. The annual league table is the most definitive and up-to-date barometer of PR agency performance. The magazine’s editorial team selected four agencies as ‘Ones to Watch’.

“2010 was a great year for Platform and for the clients we work with. We have always had a great reputation for top quality client work, and for our very strong connections in the digital TV and media sector, but we had never really focused on our own business growth,” Gay Bell, CEO and founder of Platform said.  “Recognising that ‘good enough wasn’t good enough anymore’, we have set out a clear strategy for success and I am delighted that our vision, and the hard work of our team, has been recognised by PR Week today.”

As well as its commercially led communications offerings and talented people, we attribute much of our success to a growing demand for PR from such a dynamic part of the technology industry. We operate on a global basis for many of our clients and during 2010 generated new business from a number of regions including new markets such as Asia and Israel.

Gay added, “We have worked really hard over the years to create an offering that focuses on the needs of our clients’ businesses and matches strategy, messaging and tactics with those needs. We’re in a really exciting part of the technology market, at a really exciting time and our success is certainly an indicator of the growth of this industry.”
