Eight years ago, I answered an advertisement for a reporter job at PRWeek. I recognized the magazine from my days living in the UK, but at that time, PRWeek had not established itself as a journalistic or publishing employment destination in the US.
As time passed, and PRWeek's reputation grew, we continued to invest in building the brand and offering more insightful content, including our Marketing Management Survey, Agency Business Report, Target Green events, and our robust and constantly updated Web site. This has all been possible because we have always sought to retain great people, set them loose on the entrepreneurial and journalistic endeavors that get them excited, and continue to oxygenate the blood of the PRWeek body.
In this special issue, we celebrate the industry's accomplishments and ideals. This note is for our wonderful, stressed-out, funny, dynamic, and passionate team – editorial, art, sales, circulation, production, support staff, and senior management. Thank you all for making this possible every single day.
