The Mikhailov & Partners Group ranked first in the National Rating of Communications Companies
The Mikhailov & Partners Group ranked first in the National Rating of Communications Companies (NR2K) drawn up by leading industry associations based on 2014 results. The results were announced today at the International Baltic PR Weekend Forum 2015 in St. Petersburg; the awards ceremony was attended by the Vice President of the Mikhailov & Partners Group Marianna Maksimovskaya.
"Receiving the top diploma of the National Rating of Communications Companies at such a major PR Forum as the Baltic PR Weekend is not just satisfying. We are proud to have come up first in the 'hard-fought' competition with the rating participants. We are grateful to our colleagues for the atmosphere of business competition, to our customers for their cooperation, and, of course, we are happy with the recognition of our 24/7 efforts and work!" – noted Marianna Maksimovskaya.
The Mikhailov & Partners Group ranked first in the integrated rating due to high sales and agency media activity – two of the three constituent parts of the NR2K. NR2K helps enhance the transparency of the Russian PR market and the professional level of the consultancies. It is based on sales data (53%), professional experience (37%) and agency media activity (10%).
The National Rating of Communications Companies (NR2K) has been drawn up annually since 2013 with the support of major industry associations: the Russian Academy of Public Relations (RAPR), the Russian Communications Consultancies Association (RCCA), the Russian Public Relations Association (RPRA), the Russian branch of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), and the Russian Association of Communication Directors and Corporate Publishing (AMKR).
