GR Firm a Finalist in PRWeek 2010 Awards

Grand Rapids based PR firm Lambert, Edwards and Associates is a finalist for "Small PR Agency of the Year," one of numerous categories in the PRWeek 2010 Awards.

LEA was one of five firms to make the cut as a finalist and the only representative from West Michigan in this year's awards. I called Jeremy Bakken at LEA and found out the criteria were tough. The firm had to submit information about the following to be considered:

  • employee turnover and retention
  • client testimonials
  • revenue and profitability
  • different practice areas and specialties
  • partnerships and innovations in PR practice
  • a list of long-term clients
  • account wins and losses
  • involvement in professional organizations and community activity
While it's an honor to be a finalist, LEA staff is hoping to be named Small PR Agency of the Year. They'll find out in March at the PRWeek Awards dinner in New York City.
