New President for PRGN
Cullen Communications and PRGN (Public Relations Global Network) are delighted to announce the election of new officers, including a new President, of one of the world’s leading PR agency networks.
During the network’s recent bi-annual meeting in Toronto, Canada, which was attended by our MD Owen Cullen, members of PRGN elected C.L. Conroy of Miami-based The Conroy Martinez Group, as its new President for the next 12 months. C.L. will take over from Christina Rytter of Danish agency Scandinavian Communications, while Aaron Blank of the Fearey Group takes up the role of President-elect.
It’s a great appointment for PRGN and we’re thrilled to offer our congratulations and support to our great friend C.L. Conroy (pictured left), who said: “With 51 agencies on six continents, the network is as strong as ever. We are excited to offer multi-disciplinary firms in practically every corner of the world helping our clients have a global footprint wherever they need it.”
C.L.’s comment underlines the main benefit of working with PR agencies that belong to PRGN. We have close, personal relationships with our independent agency partners around the world – all 51 of them – and that connection gives us local insights and support in all major markets while allowing us to serve clients however they need.
The Toronto get-together was an opportunity to reaffirm those relationships while also discussing best practices in PR and exploring ways of developing even more business partnerships globally. Other items on the agenda included the #metoo movement, how to promote news literacy in the age of fake news and creating a safe workplace for employees.
PRGN’s next meeting will take place in Bucharest, Romania, in October 2018 where the PRGN Awards for Excellence in Communications will also be announced.
PRGN was founded in 1990 by a group of independent PR agency owners and today has more than $101 million in revenues and approximately 1,000 professionals in 51 locations. Cullen Communications is Ireland’s sole member of the invitation-only network and agency founder Frank Cullen is a Past President of the group.
