“It is always exciting to be recognized for the thoughtful, often challenging work that we do in this industry. But more than that, it is an honor to create impactful campaigns that advance public relations as a field, and turn big ideas into bigger outcomes for the organizations we serve,” said Ashley Brune, vice president of public relations for The Abbi Agency. “We look forward to continuing to meet and exceed a standard of excellence moving forward.”

Recently, The Abbi Agency has made significant strides as a business. The firm, alongside the Nevada Department of Wildlife, recently won the top award in conservation communications over 49 other states in the nation at the Association for Conservation Information’s annual gathering.  It also recruited Bryan Allison, a trailblazing and trusted Nevada communications professional whose decades of experience saw him chart a course through the digital divide as marketing made its way to what consumers now know as the cloud, as Chief Marketing Officer.

As the year comes to a close, The Abbi Agency is looking forward to unveiling exciting and new elements of its audacious rebrand—which you can learn more about at The Abbi Agency Blog.
