As I write this post, PerkettPR’s Founder and President, Christine Perkett is making her way down to New York City for this evening’s American Business Awards ceremony. Last month she was named as a finalist in the Best PR Executive category, and we’re all waiting on pins and needles for the announcement of the official winners tonight.
Hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” (New York Post , April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business. More than 600 executives from across the U.S.A. are expected to attend tonight’s gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Liz Claman of FOX Business Network.
This announcement, along with the potential of being selected as a Stevie award winner, is the icing on the cake with 2008 marking PerkettPR’s 10 year anniversary. Christine’s passion for tech PR, business prowess, and innovation in creating a successful, virtually run agency with an all senior staff has proven to be a winning model, and this achievement marks her well deserved recognition from the industry. Congrats Christine!
