Paragon named to PRNews 2020 Agency Elite Top 100 List

NEW YORK – August 18, 2020 – Paragon Public Relations (“Paragon”), an award-winning full-service communications firm, has been named to PRNews’ 2020 Agency Elite Top 100 List, which recognizes the top PR, communications and marketing firms in the United States.

The inaugural Agency Elite Top 100 spotlights the nation’s most innovative and strategic PR firms across various focus areas, from boutique firms specializing in specific industry sectors to global organizations encompassing multiple industry practices. 

“The transformation of the communications industry is well underway. To be successful, it’s vital for firms to embrace this digital revolution and the opportunities it presents,” said Simon Hylson-Smith, CEO of Paragon PR. “Being named to PRNews’ inaugural Agency Elite Top 100 is a testament to the hard work of the entire Paragon team and our determination to help our clients thrive during these historic times.” 

In the past year, Paragon introduced its new “Digital Studio,” which includes video and podcast productions, SEO/SEM, digital consulting, online advertising and marketing automation strategy and execution. The agency also developed an in-house creative team and offers an expedited custom video offering through its “Paragon Productions” service. 

The PR News team examined an array of practice areas and entries were scored across more than a dozen criteria that illustrated the differentiators each firm provided over the last 12 months and, more recently, how firms have adjusted strategies to reflect the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on clients.
