SINGAPORE – September 17, 2019 – It was a triumphant evening for WE Communications (WE) at this year’s SABRE Awards Asia Pacific. The independent firm took home four awards including: Asia Pacific Regional Consultancy of the Year (Mid-size), Indian Consultancy (Avian WE) and two Gold SABRE Awards with clients RB Dettol (Consumer Health) and AB InBev (Associations). WE was also shortlisted for Australasian Consultancy of the Year (WE Buchan). These accolades reflect the agency’s recent double-digit growth and transformation to a full-service communications agency across the Asia Pacific region. The prestigious SABRE Awards Asia Pacific ceremony was held in Singapore on September 12.

Commenting on the wins, Kass Sells, Global Chief Operating Officer and President of International at WE said, “I am very proud of our WE teams across APAC. This recognition is only possible because of the deep and lasting relationships we have with our clients and partners and our commitment to creating stellar work together that makes positive impact in the world.”
