We won!

We did it! Curley is the PRWeek Outstanding Small Agency of the Year winner!  And we are incredibly grateful to all of you who have been part of our success – our clients, partners, friends, and incredible team members.

We won this award because we prioritize working with clients who are true partners and organizations where we can do rewarding work and see the results and impact of what we do.

We won this award because of the terrific work members of the Curley team do every day and because they consistently show up with curiosity, a collaborative mindset, and a positive can-do attitude that highlights our unyielding focus on client service. 

The growth we have seen over the past two years has been intentional, the focus we have put on our earned media and digital advocacy work has been strategic.  The choices we make in hiring and building this team and prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion have moved Curley forward.   To quote the PRWeek article about our win, “Very impressive growth — and did it while maintaining longtime clients,” noted one judge. Praised another: “It grew in the right ways.”

Sitting in the room at Cipriani on Wall Street last night was truly inspiring.  It was great to be there in person and to see all the creative work coming from our industry.  And most importantly to celebrate Curley’s place at the table with the best agencies, in-house teams, and individual communicators in the country.  Hearing our name called, walking to the stage while they played Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’, and standing on that stage to receive our award are moments we will never forget.

We were recognized last night as outstanding small agency of the year which goes hand in hand with our award earlier this year as a winner of PRWeek Best Place to Work.  We know Curley is special, but being recognized by our industry peers as one of the best is extremely validating!

We are incredibly grateful to all of you and for this recognition. Today we will happily take a victory lap and get ready for more to come!
