SOUTHEAST ASIA – Vero was named Agency of the Year in Southeast Asia at the annual PRovoke Sabre awards. The awards recognize strategic and business excellence in public relations and agency management.
In awarding the honor, PRovoke recognized Vero’s efforts across business performance, people and culture, thought leadership and campaign work. Vero has spent the last year helping clients navigate tough challenges, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and geopolitical challenges. Vero has also increased focus on employee engagement, workplace culture and mental health support for all team members in Southeast Asia.
“This award is the culmination of the Vero team across Southeast Asia rising to face and solve our clients’ complicated challenges with high levels of cooperation, intelligence, empathy and hard work,” said Brian Griffin, CEO, Vero. “Winning this award is only possible through the collective effort of Vero people and the trust our clients put in us to help drive their businesses forward. With all that said, our real focus is on creating campaigns that help clients achieve and exceed their business goals. But winning awards is a major bonus and serves as validation that our approach is working.”
The PRovoke award follows an honor bestowed on Vero by the PRCA earlier this year for the agency’s work in crisis communications in Southeast Asia.
“Thanks PRovoke and the judging panels who share the same values with us and truly understand importance of effective communication solutions leveraging from our earned coverage legacy,” said Pattanee Jeeriphab, CCO, Vero. “This recognition will always remind us of our commitment to be truthful our clients, communication industry and communities as same as our brand true meaning.”
