NEW YORK, December 23, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Michael W. Kempner, founder and CEO of leading independent PR agency MWWPR, was named seventh on Observer’s annual PR Power 50 list. For the first time, people instead of companies are included in the list to recognize those who have faced the problems of the PR industry this year and who have responded most effectively to the challenges of the pandemic and who have dealt with diversity, justice and inclusion .
The list includes both in-house PR and agency PR professionals, as well as selected independent industry activists. The Observer staff, who rate a pool of candidates year-round, found that Kempner was leading the way with the 2020 elections and advised clients on how Latino vote and Super PAC American Bridge to register voters. The company’s response to COVID and its commitment to the further development of DEI with improved service offerings in the areas of crisis and issues management and social media leadership skills as well as substantial pro bono initiatives to support black-owned companies earned Kempner praise.
“This year challenged our industry and gave us the rare opportunity to rewrite the rules to drive change,” he said Michael Kempner, Founder and CEO of MWWPR. “It is a reward to be recognized for improving the issues that are central to the company’s values. We work every day to make the lives of our employees, our customers, our industry and society as a whole positive to influence.”
Kempner was inducted into the PRWeek Hall of Fame earlier this month for his professional achievements in the industry. MWW was named to Forbes’ list of Top PR Agencies of 2021 this year and PRNews named it to the first Agency Elite 100.
