Version 2.0 Communications Wins Bronze for Best Boutique Agency by Bulldog Reporter

This award comes on the heels of agency recognition by PRNews as a Top Place to Work and for three Platinum PR Awards for client campaigns

Boston – January 17, 2020 – Version 2.0 Communications (V2), the public relations and digital communications firm for disruptive brands, today announced it has won the Bronze 2019 Bulldog Stars of PR Award for Best Boutique Agency. The Bulldog Stars of PR recognize the best and brightest PR professionals and agencies of the past year. The Best Boutique Agency category specifically rewards agencies that prize a distinct brand character, impressive client growth and retention, a positive work environment and a demonstrated history of achieving results for clients as winning criteria for an agency.

V2 was built on the pillars of innovation and integrity. V2 considers its clients to be partners, taking the time to actively listen to and thoroughly understand their goals in order to in turn produce strategic, honest counsel that allows companies to act confidently and effectively. The agency’s team of PR mavens leverages its collective years of experience to develop and execute unparalleled communications programs, securing clients highly visible coverage, speaking opportunities and awards and always positioning them as leading industry voices. The excellence of V2’s work speaks for itself: 85% of new business comes through referrals or repeat clients.

V2’s vision from the outset was to partner with brands that are disrupting the way we live, work and play – brands that make PR professionals excited to get up in the morning and keep them engaged and fulfilled at work. Further, because of V2’s boutique nature, senior management is not only actively involved in client programs, but also provides employees with the professional development support they need to produce winning results for clients and cultivate skills for long-term career goals.

“V2 was built boutique by design,” said Maura FitzGerald, partner and co-founder of V2. “We’re honored to get this award. It’s a testament to the hard work and innovative thinking of our team, as well as a promise to our clients that we will continue to push the boundaries and never settle for the status quo. We strive to be a great place to work, in addition to being a great agency to work with.”

In addition to this honor, V2 has been recognized by a number of awards programs this year, most notably from PRNews, including:

  • Top Places to Work in PR, for creating a workplace environment that empowers people to evolve their careers and succeed while doing great work for clients
  • Top Women in PR, for Vice President Kristen Leathers’ unparalleled media and influencer relations and strategic, scrappy approach to PR
  • Three Platinum PR Awards, for the agency’s campaign execution on behalf of UiPath (category Media Relations Campaign), LLamasoft (category Global PR Campaign) and DirectPath (category Healthcare Communications Campaign)
