The Zoldak Agency was named Best Public Affairs Firm of the Year for the second year in the row at the 2019 Reed Awards on February 22, 2019. At the awards event and conference held this year in Austin, Texas, founder, Sue Zoldak accepted the accolade on behalf of the firm.
“We are so excited to be recognized in this way, especially knowing that the criteria involves being innovative but above all for being a firm that you would recommend to others,” says Sue Zoldak. “Our word of mouth recognization is what keeps us working hard for our clients and the issues we pursue on their behalf.”
In addition to being a two-time winner for this agency award, The Zoldak Agency also cut a big swath by winning Best Canadian Campaign for an nationwide effort that brought three Canadian think tanks together for the first time to raise awareness around the issue of interprovincial free trade.
Last but not least, The Zoldak Agency also took home a trophy for Best Advocacy Social Media Campaign, a category the firm has been nominated for every year it has been in business.
