San Francisco, Calif. (October 9, 2019)- Singer Associates Public Relations San Francisco is one of five public relations agencies from around the world that is a finalist for the distinction of being named the “Global Public Relations Agency of the Year” by The Holmes Report, one of the leading sources of news for the public relations profession.

“We owe this honor to our clients–who give us the most exciting, challenging, and fascinating assignments imaginable–and our dedicated family of staff members who make the headlines come true,” said agency president Sam Singer.

“We are beyond excited by this great honor and we salute our clients, our staff, and our competitors,” added managing partner Adam Alberti.

The other four public relations agencies competing include international agencies SKDKnickerbocker (US), Greyling (UK), FSB (Brazil) and APCO (US).

The Holmes Report 2019 “Global PR Agencies of the Year” competition is the result of an exhaustive research process by the Holmes Report involving more than 450 international agencies and face-to-face meetings with the best PR firms across North America, EMEA, Asia-Pacific and LatAm.

The winner will be announced at the 2019 Global SABRE Awards, which take place at the PRovoke19 Global PR Summit in Washington, DC, on the evening of 23 October at the Watergate Hotel.

The Holmes Report said, in evaluating Singer Associates Public Relations San Francisco for the award, that “when it comes to high-stakes public battles on the West Coast, Singer Associates’ public relations firm is very likely to be involved on one side of the aisle. And that reputation has only improved in recent years, powering another year of impressive growth — up an eye-catching 34% in 2018 with just 17 staffers, and the additional of a new office in Silicon Valley/San Jose to join its existing San Francisco HQ.”

We are beyond excited by this great honor and we salute our clients, our staff, and our competitors.”
