Winning..It’s Good, No Lie
INK Public Relations Takes Home PR’s “People’s Choice” Award
Journalists Vote INK Tops; INK’s Starr Baker Receives Individual Shout Out
AUSTIN, Texas, September 21, 2010 – Chants of “We’re number one! We’re number one!” echoed through the halls of the Whitney Building here in Austin this morning as news of INK PR’s top agency award win spread throughout the company. The boutique PR agency is the best small tech agency in the nation according to PRSourceCode’s fifth annual survey of over 800 journalists.
“For the reporters we work with every day to say they like how we do what we do – well, that’s reason to celebrate,” said Starr Million Baker, president and co-founder of INK PR.
Baker had cause for a second glass of champagne: the winning agency’s leader also received individual honors for her work with the media community.
Vice President and Co-founder Kari Hernandez said: “Starr and I started INK to provide PR with a personal touch and do it better than anyone else. These awards are confirmation that we’re doing just that. Thanks to our clients for the privilege of telling their stories and to our journalist friends for listening. Congratulations to our talented staff and to Starr especially for this well-deserved honor.”
Founded in 2004, INK PR has flourished over the past two years despite the economic downturn, with a 60 percent growth in staff, near perfect client retention and the addition of several new clients and a clean energy practice. INK clients consist of leaders in the technology and clean energy industries including the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), Austin-based Gemalto and Nuventix, and ACCIONA Energy North America to name a few.
About the Awards
PRSourceCode, an IT-focused content service provider connecting the public relations, journalism, conference and industry accolade communities, based the results of its Top Tech Communicators awards on a nationwide survey of more than 800 journalists and bloggers from IT and business publications, including eWEEK, Wired, PCWorld and more. The 5th annual survey, conducted in Q2 2010, asked editors to name their “top” PR agency and individual PR professional, based on responsiveness, knowledge of the industry, knowledge of the journalist’s individual preferences and more. INK PR was named the nation’s number one agency in the small size category; Starr Million Baker was voted as one of the nation’s Top 20 Tech Communicators for her individual efforts.
