The 2015 Acquisition International Business Excellence Awards identify and honor the most respected companies across international business communities. MSR Communications was selected based on its sustained merit and achievement over the course of the past year. Each year, the awards recognize and reward companies and individuals that offer their customers the highest possible standard of service.

“It is a great honor to be named ‘Best Technology PR Firm in California’ by AI Magazine,” said Mary Shank Rockman, Principal and CEO of MSR Communications. “For nearly 16 years, MSR has helped elevate clients’ brand stories to global influencers in creative and impactful ways. This AI Business Excellence Award of distinction is a testament to MSR’s continued commitment to provide clients with the strategy, service and influential relationships that drive valuable business results.”

Nominations for the Business Excellence Awards were submitted by 108,000 plus AI Magazine subscribers and more than 524,000 global professionals. Three AI senior board members and three investigative researchers judged each submission based on contenders’ ability to surpass enterprise expectations and achieve client success.

“We’re proud to be able to showcase MSR Communications as Best Technology PR Firm in California alongside some of the most innovative and committed organisations from across the wider business world,” said Nathan Angell, Awards Co-ordinator at AI Magazine. “With our Business Excellence Awards quickly becoming one of our most popular programmes, the success that MSR Communications has achieved is testament to the amazing work they have put in over the past 12 months to achieve consistently stellar results for their clients while really setting the standards for what can be achieved in their sector.”
