Singapore, July 14, 2020 – 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 seventh 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.  The Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world’s premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards® for 18 years.

“When we submitted our entry in 2019, nobody would have imagined a changed world in 2020. Even before the COVID-19 crisis struck the world, we were always lean and agile to adapt to the rapid changes in the media landscape, client demands, and what the populace needs in terms of content. We continue to be very 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 can. This stems from our real-world field experience garnered nearly 30 years in working closely with our clients in technology, healthcare, fashion, and other industries,” says Dr Seamus Phan, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and Head of Content, McGallen & Bolden Group. “We are also extremely grateful to all our clients, some of which worked with us for decades since their inception, who trusted us to help them grow successfully in the markets, 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 insights and experience, and not just ‘run-of-the-mill’ media relations. Clients always get CXO-level actionable insights.”

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 May and June.

“We are delighted that the seventh edition of the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards attracted so many impressive nominations,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.  “This year’s winning nominations are testament to the resiliency and innovation of organizations in the region, many of which continue to succeed despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Although we are disappointed that we cannot stage the in-person awards banquet we had planned for Hanoi, Vietnam this year, we look forward to celebrating many of this year’s winners during our virtual awards ceremony on 22 September.”
