800+ Journalists Voted: SHIFT Communications Named 'Top Five' Large Tech PR Agency
SHIFT Execs to Staff: "Free Personal Day for Everyone!"
BOSTON, MA and NEW YORK, NY and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) - SHIFT Communications today was named a Top Five "Large Tech Agency" by more than 800 technology reporters and bloggers, as tabulated by PRSourceCode in its annual Top Tech Communicators survey.
According to PRSourceCode, the journalists weren't given names of firms to choose from in the survey. Rather, they were asked to enter their favorite firms based on real-world experiences over the past year.
"That's why this award is so special for us," said SHIFT Principal Todd Defren. "It means our tech staff is dealing with the media authentically, respectfully and punctually on behalf of our clients. We couldn't be more proud of our teams."
To celebrate the accolades, Defren and fellow SHIFT Principal Jim Joyal announced in national staff meetings -- in Boston, New York and San Francisco -- that the entire PR pitching staff had earned a free personal day in honor of its distinguished work.
"We told our folks to take that day off soon, before the 'new trophy smell' wears off," said Joyal.
