The Holmes Report “Boutique Agency of the Year” Honor Follows 2012 “Small Agency of the Year” Award by PRWeek; Distinguishes Catalyst as the Only Organization to Win Agency of the Year from PRWeek and The Holmes Report in the Same Year

One agency of the year award is a significant achievement. Two agency of the year awards – in the same year – is an extraordinary accomplishment.

Catalyst Public Relations has been recognized with yet another agency of the year honor with the 2012 SABRE Award for Boutique Agency of the Year. The SABRE Awards are given out by The Holmes Report, the prestigious industry group that has been providing knowledge, analysis and insight to public relations professionals since 2000. The awards ceremony was held on May 8, in New York City.    

This marks the fourth agency of the year award that Catalyst has earned in the past four years, including Small Agency of the Year by PRWeek in 2012, Boutique Agency of the Year by PRWeek in 2010 and New Consultancy of the Year by The Holmes Report in 2009.

Catalyst becomes the only agency to win both a PRWeek and SABRE award for agency of the year in 2012.

Catalyst also took home the Gold SABRE Award for Cause Related marketing program for PACE (Protecting Athletes though Concussion Education), the largest baseline concussion testing initiative ever, which funded free concussion baseline testing for up to one million young athletes.

“Winning one agency of the year award is a rare occurrence that speaks volumes for our client partners and the people who work for Catalyst,” said Bret Werner, Managing Partner, Catalyst. “Winning two agency of the year awards in the same year further validates our approach of being committed to aligning with leading brands that want to engage consumers who are passionate about sports, entertainment and leading an active lifestyle.”

In selecting Catalyst, The Holmes Report noted the firm’s impressive growth in 2011, a client roster that includes some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, as well as multiple signature digital programs implemented throughout the year.
