Coyne Public Relations is proud to announce that the agency has been named a finalist for PRovoke’s Creative Agency of the Year. The 2020 North America PR Agencies of the Year are the results an exhaustive research process involving more than 150 submissions from the best PR firms across the U.S. and Canada.

Paul Holmes, Founder of PRovoke, stated, “Last year’s Creative Agency of the Year, Coyne PR didn’t take its foot off the pedal in 2019, with 10 SABRE Awards nominations for its work last year – more than an agency outside of the ‘big three’ of Edelman, Ketchum and Weber Shandwick. That’s the second year the New Jersey-based firm – with $32 million in fees – has outperformed many larger agencies in terms of creative recognition.

“We are honored to be named a Creative Agency of the Year finalist for the second year in a row,” said Tom Coyne, CEO. “We are humbled and proud that we continue to hold ourselves to the highest bar of creativity for our client partners.”

Winners will be revealed at the 2020 North American SABRE Awards which will be taking place virtually in May, with details forthcoming soon. For a full list of Agencies of the Year Finalists, please visit PRovoke’s website.
