WASHINGTON, Sept. 24, 2018 – Spectrum Science Communications, a leading independent health and science public relations agency, has been named PR News' 2018 Medium PR Firm of the Year. This win comes during a pivotal year for the firm, during which it introduced Galileo6 as its first product, welcomed six senior hires into newly-formed roles and completed its sale to President and CEO Jonathan Wilson ahead of schedule.
"I couldn't be prouder for Spectrum to be named Medium PR Firm of the Year," said Wilson. "It's not only a testament to the incredible work of our teams and the trust our clients place in us to tell their stories every day, but also to our ability to deliver on our vision of being a leading independent, integrated and insights-first agency."
Based in Washington, DC, with offices in New York, Atlanta and Chicago, the agency has seen exponential growth over the past four years, reporting a 20% year-over-year revenue increase this past year alone. This growth can be attributed to a steadfast focus on analytics-driven strategy and engaging the right talent to support an integrated model across the agency's five practice areas: biopharma, biotech, consumer science, health technology and public affairs.
The 2018 Medium PR Firm of the Year was announced by PR News at the Platinum & Agency Elite Awards luncheon September 21, 2018 in New York. Spectrum was selected as the winner from a field of ten finalists, representing the most innovative firms with $10M to $60M in revenue that are setting the benchmark of excellence in the communications arena. In addition to Medium PR Firm of the Year, Spectrum was also honored with the 2018 Agency Elite Award for Media Relations for the agency's work with client 23andMe on the campaign Step Forward with Me.
