EM scooped two prizes including the flagship Best Small IR Agency/PR Consultancy category at this year’s Corporate & Financial Awards, announced in London on 25 September.
A judging panel of leading industry figures praised EM for its strong focus on emerging markets and its eagerness to achieve bigger and better things despite a challenging political and business context.
EM also took the Gold award for Best Management of Corporate and Financial Media Relations for its work with Russian Aquaculture. Appointed just a few months ahead of a planned SPO, EM executed a high-speed media campaign to turn around investor and media sentiment. The company’s share price increased 65% as a result.
“It’s incredible to think how much we have achieved, going from effectively one person in a serviced office in Moscow in 2010 to 25 people in New York, London, Vienna, Luxembourg, Davos, Moscow, Beijing and Hong Kong. It’s great news to be recognized in this way today. But the even better news is that we are still only just getting started.”
