Olson Engage Ranked Among Top Consumer-PR Firms

Agency is "probably the most prolific producer of breakthrough creative work in the industry," says the Holmes Report

CHICAGO (APRIL 9, 2018) -- Olson Engage is one of the top consumer-PR firms in the U.S., according to the Holmes Report, a leading trade publication.

The agency was named  a finalist today for Holmes' "Consumer Agency of the Year" award, marking the fifth consecutive year it has been a finalist for one of the publication's top agency awards. Olson Engage was a finalist for Creative Agency of the Year honors in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, winning the award in 2014. It previously won Consumer Agency of the Year honors in 2012, when it was operating as "Olson PR."

"Olson Engage is probably the most prolific producer of breakthrough creative work in the industry," wrote the Holmes Report. "And while Olson Engage has earned its place as a formidable creative powerhouse, it’s become clear that, in most cases, the creativity drives compelling business performance for its clients."

Judges also called out the agency's financial performance, its capabilities expansion into award-winning corporate- and public-affairs work and its focus on engaging and empowering its own employees. The winners will be announced at the North America SABRE Awards gala on May 1. It could be a busy evening for the agency, as Olson Engage is currently shortlisted for six campaign awards.

The agency honor comes less than a month after PR Week named Olson Engage its "Outstanding Midsize Agency" for 2018, as well as its Honorable Mention winner among agencies of all sizes.
