"AR|PR tells stories about tech entrepreneurs and companies that elevate their brands and the entire ecosystem. I am pleased to see that their quality work in the tech community is being recognized by awards," said Sig Mosley, managing partner of Mosley Ventures and widely regarded as “The Godfather of Angel Investing.”

“Our industry accolades are attributed to one factor, and one factor alone – our team. Our first employees came to work for AR|PR not because we had a fancy office space or fat pension plans – they came here because they recognized a special opportunity in the marketplace and had a strong desire to use their skill set to help innovators #makenews,” said Anna Ruth Williams, founder and CEO of AR|PR. “Together, this team – or ‘army of awesome’ as well call ourselves – is many things, but above all, it’s nimble, patient, tenacious and dedicated. Each day we land media placements, grow social media followings and generate dynamic content that all drives industry leadership and sales for our clients. We’re honored to see these results recognized by industry organizations and look forward to growing our award-winning reputation in 2015.”

In 2014, AR|PR nearly tripled its growth and more than tripled its team of talented tech marketing pros. As a result of landing more than 250 million media impressions and growing social media channels by double and triple digits, 100 percent of clients said they would recommend AR|PR to their networks.
