Qorvis Nominated for 2009 "Midsize PR Agency of the Year" by PRWeek

(January 12, 2009)

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/12/09 -- Qorvis Communications announced today that it has been named a finalist by PRWeek for the category of Midsize PR Agency of the Year 2009.

"Being nominated for Agency of the Year really caps off what has been a great 12 months for the entire Qorvis team," said Qorvis' Managing Partner Michael Petruzzello. "Qorvis is well positioned for 2009, for a whole new slate of opportunities -- for us and our clients."

Several highlights underscored Qorvis' strong year, including: the launch of Clarus Research Group, a full-service, in-house polling and research firm; a number of new clients, including an advertising campaign for the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM); the hiring of some top-tier talent, such as Karen Hanretty, former Communications Director for the National Republican Congressional Committee, and Lisa Bushey, a public relations veteran; and the expansion of the company's headquarters in Washington, DC.

Qorvis is starting the year with the launch of the 2009 Presidential Inauguration Mobile App. The new, free mobile application, named "Phone App of the Week" by the New York Times, will provide visitors to Washington in January the ability to easily navigate the city with a glance at their iPhone or BlackBerry.
