Singapore, April 22, 2019 – McGallen & Bolden Group ( was named the winner of the Bronze Stevie® Award in the “Most Innovative Public Relations Agency of the Year” category in the sixth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards today.

The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognize innovation in the workplace in all 29 nations of the Asia-Pacific region.

More than 900 nominations from organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered this year in categories such as Award for Excellence in Innovation in Products & Services, Award for Innovative Management, and Award for Innovation in Corporate Websites, among many others. McGallen & Bolden Group won in the “Most Innovative Public Relations Agency of the Year” category.

“We are grateful for the judges who understood the unique offerings our firm has that benefit many of our multinational and local clients in holistic communication and business strategy, much more than a typical PR agency or digital marketing agency offer. This stems from our real-world field experience garnered over 25 years in working closely with our clients in technology, healthcare, fashion, and other industries,” says Seamus Phan, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and Head of Content, McGallen & Bolden Group. “We are also extremely grateful to all our clients, some of whom worked with us for decades since their inception, who trusted us to help them grow successfully, and gave us latitude to provide 360-degree marketing, communication, strategy, branding and training to ensure their growth in highly competitive arenas such as technology and FMCG. And we never stop learning and growing our expertise, to ensure our clients always get the best CXO-level actionable insights and experience, and not just ‘run-of-the-mill’ media relations.”

Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 100 executives around the world acting as judges in March and April.

“We are very pleased that entries to this program grew again this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We added seven nations to those eligible to participate in the program for 2019, and we saw strong participation from several of them, especially India. We extend our warmest congratulations to all of this year’s Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners.”
