MWW Group is a different kind of agency; passionate and driven with an entrepreneurial attitude. It is this attitude which allows us to deliver outstanding results for our clients and exceed their expectations and business goals. It is also what has led our agency to maintain long-term client relationships.
In December of 2010, MWW Group CEO and President, Michael Kempner spearheaded a management led buy-out from the Interpublic Group of Companies (NYSE: IPG). The buy-out occurred ten years following the original sale of MWW Group to IPG and returns the firm to its status as one of the five largest independent public relations agencies.
In 2010, MWW Group’s Corporate Affairs practice was created to direct the firm’s global corporate social responsibility division and establishes multiplatform engagement initiatives for clients. The basis for creating this practice was that clients increasingly require multiplatform strategies and market-based solutions to address their domestic and global issues, in creating this practice we are able to provide high level consulting and strategic programming across all disciplines.
In 2010, MWW Group launched Dialogue Digital, consolidating MWW Group’s award- winning, national digital media practice and MWW Group’s in-house creative services team. Dialogue Digital helps brands and companies leverage digital and visual branding strategies to build and maintain trust and relevancy among their core constituents. Through CommunityWorks, a company-wide volunteer program, we are taking an active role in bettering the world in which we live.
MWW Group’s commitment to the community and the environment is reflected in the company’s annual Corporate Citizenship Report. The company’s second annual report, released in July of 2010, was created for the purpose of sharing the values and principles that guide our corporate citizenship initiatives. These collective efforts define MWW Group’s commitment to corporate citizenship, whether it is our program to protect and preserve the environment, our work in support of local communities or our efforts to provide our employees with a company and workplace in which they can take great pride.
Over the past twenty years we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the most innovative brands in the world. New 2010 clients included Altec Lansing LLC, Travelzoo, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Services, MovieTickets.com, Marcum LLP, United States Bowling Congress, Next Day Blinds, Copart, Inc., MDE Group, Inc., Psomas FMG, i3 Group, LTD, alliantgoup, L.P., Healthcare Insight, Pathstone Family Office and expanded our relationship with the 1800Flowers company to become agency of record for The Popcorn Factory, Cheryl’s, and Fannie May Chocolatier.
Our passion and dedication to client service has resulted in numerous industry awards. In 2010, MWW Group was honored with multiple awards for outstanding client work from the following organizations: PRSA Silver Anvil, International Business Awards, American Business Awards, PRNews PR People, PR News Platinum PR Awards, PR News CSR Awards, Mercury Awards, IRIS Awards, Bulldog Reporter Awards, and SABRE Awards, among others.
