Alpaytac Public Relations is proud to announce that its founder and CEO, Huma Gruaz, has been named as one of PR News' Top Women in PR for 2015 for a second consecutive year.
PR News' Top Women in PR Awards celebrate women who are at the forefront of the public relations industry and have made bold advances for their organizations and their clients in 2015. Those honored were judged by a blue-chip panel of PR executives, as well as by PR News. Winners received their awards at a luncheon in New York City in January 2016.
PR News chose Gruaz for her leadership, guiding Alpaytac through award-winning PR and social media campaigns for various clients, including the agency’s founding client SharkNinja. Starting the agency more than a decade ago from a small shared office and one client, Gruaz has turned Alpaytac into one of the industry’s top integrated PR and social media agencies in the U.S., with offices in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
“I share this honor with the Alpaytac team, whose dedication and commitment continue to result in pioneering PR and social media campaigns for our clients, helping build their brands and businesses,” said Gruaz, founder and CEO of Alpaytac. “Alpaytac has become a top PR and social media agency because of the talented team we have who understands how to get results that matter for businesses we represent.”
Alpaytac applies this expertise in PR, integrated marketing, social media and digital marketing in more than 16 industries, including housewares, consumer electronics, travel, retail, health and wellness, and B2B.
