Marino Named to Agency Elite Top 100 List by PRNEWS
The Agency Elite Top 100 is designed to spotlight the nation’s most innovative and strategic PR and communications firms in the business, while demonstrating the wide range of industry specializations and core capabilities that public relations encompasses.
“While this past year brought significant challenges across all industries, we have remained laser-focused on providing critical communication support to our clients, adapting and maintaining the best possible environment for our team, and producing effective results,” said John F. Marino, president at Marino. “The dedication and grit exemplified by our team has been the driving force behind our success this year. We are truly honored to receive the PR News Agency Elite award as a recognition of that effort.”
Within the past year, Marino has expanded upon its diverse service offerings, grown its experience in emerging markets like cannabis and PropTech, and successfully launched new tailored strategies to elevate its clients and their brands in a rapidly evolving landscape. From working on behalf of the NYC Hospitality Alliance to ensure the passage of legislation to help struggling businesses during the pandemic, to leading a media relations campaign on behalf of the Brennan Center for Justice to drive awareness of a ballot initiative that ultimately made history in California by restoring the right to vote to parolees in the state, the agency’s robust strategies helped businesses and organizations navigate unprecedented circumstances while advancing their important work.
“Flexibility and evolution are two words that immediately come to mind when I think about the agencies on this year’s list,” says Erika Bradbury, editorial director, PRNEWS. “The firms this year stood out for their work on the most important issues of today, including DEI initiatives, social impact causes and COVID-19 relief work, as well as their understanding of the importance of being nimble in an always-on media world.”
For Marino, the PRNEWS Agency Elite Top 100 honor adds to a growing list of recent awards and recognitions within the last year, including the Observer’s PR Power 50, City & State NY Real Estate Power 100, City & State’s Political Power 50, Crain’s New York Business Notable in Marketing & PR, and GlobeSt.’s Influencers in Commercial Real Estate Marketing & Communications.
