WE 'Best Agency in Asia Pacific’ at PRWeek Global Awards



SINGAPORE – May 30, 2019 – WE Communications received top regional honors when it was named ‘Best Agency in Asia Pacific’ at the prestigious PRWeek Global Awards 2019 ceremony in London. The accolade reflects the agency’s recent double-digit growth and transformation from a disjointed network to a leading, independent mid-size agency in Asia Pacific.  

“WE Communications’ significantly high level of growth in Asia Pacific over the past year is impressive, as is their integrated approach for clients,” said Declan Gough, PRWeek’s business director. “The firm is a true industry leader and we look forward to seeing more from WE in the future.”

The PRWeek Global Awards are one of the most prominent PR industry prizes in the world, honoring transformative work that spans regions and territories. This year’s shortlist included 153 campaigns selected from regions including North America, Latin America, Continental Europe, Middle East and Asia Pacific.

“We are honored to be recognized by PRWeek,” said Kass Sells, Global COO and President, International at WE Communications. “We share this award with our incredible clients who have given us an opportunity to deliver communications work that creates true impact.”

PRWeek’s Best Agency in Asia Pacific award is the result of a thorough research process by a pre-selected judging panel that reviews written and video entries. WE Communications was shortlisted alongside one other agency, Weber Shandwick, and was crowned overall winner during the ceremony.
