Weber Shandwick Ranked Ninth On AdAge “A List”

By Joe Ciarallo Comment

Weber Shandwick is the only PR agency on Advertising Age‘s Agency “A-List” report released today. The agency has been on a new business streak and “brought in $50 million in new accounts last year, including the likes of Samsung, PepsiCo, HSBC, Juniper Networks, HP and Wisk,” reports AdAge‘s Michael Bush.

Bush highlighted successful campaigns for clients Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) and Electrolux. “More and more, we’re becoming the brand stewards rather than the brand tactical executors,” Weber Shandwick CEO Harris Diamond told AdAge.

Edelman was the only PR firm to make the list in 2008.
