Sharon Merrill Associates Wins Platinum Super Bell Award

Sharon Merrill Associates on Monday captured The Publicity Club of New England’s coveted 2012 Platinum Super Bell at its annual Bell Ringer Awards, which annually recognizes the region’s most successful communications and public relations campaigns. We won the Platinum Super Bell for our investor relations program for Gibraltar Industries, recognizing us as “best in show” among the “Gold” winners in each of the 20 communications campaign categories. In addition, the agency also received a Gold Bell Ringer Award for best Investor/Financial Relations Campaign.

Sharon Merrill Associates, which also won a Platinum Super Bell in 2004, is the only firm to have ever received the award for investor relations. We have been honored with a Bell Ringer award in each of the past 13 years we have entered the competition. But these accolades are only possible because of the commitment of clients like Gibraltar to maintain a high standard of communications with the investment community. We extend our appreciation to The Publicity Club of New England and our fantastic clients.

Sharon Merrill is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sharon Merrill Associates.
