I am both thrilled and humbled as The Reis Group marks its one-year anniversary of charting a new course in pursuit of the highest level of communications expertise in health, health care, science, and social issues. The energy of our team, our new office, our clients and their issues, our partners and their support, have made the past 12 months invigorating and incredibly successful. And our momentum is growing. We’ve added several new clients, we’re expanding our capabilities, and building our strengths.
And people are noticing. The Reis Group was just named a finalist for Best New Agency of the Year in North America for 2017 by The Holmes Report. I was recognized as one of the top Women of the Year by Washington Women in Public Relations. My colleague Tamara Moore received the honor of PR Professional of the Year from PR Daily, and our campaigns have received accolades in the PR industry.
It’s always a little scary leaving one company for another. Yet this new adventure has inspired and motivated me and our team. We are creating a culture of respect and recognition, combined with flexibility and fun. We are on the right path and feeling optimistic about the future.
