PRSA/SENE Announces 2015 Excellence Awards Recipients

Industry group recognizes the best in Public Relations in Southeastern New England

Providence, R.I. – The Southeastern New England Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA/SENE) announced its 2015 Excellence Awards, which recognize the area’s best public relations work in the past year. The awards were presented on April 15, at the Park Theatre in Cranston, R.I.

In its fifth year, the PRSA/SENE Excellence Awards recognize outstanding public relations tactics and campaign strategies across a spectrum of specialty areas. Entries are judged by industry professionals in fellow PRSA Chapters. The entries are then scored based on research, planning, execution, and evaluation of the tactic or campaign. The 2015 Excellence Awards were judged by a PRSA Chapter in California.

“Each year, we continue to be amazed by the talent and accomplishments of the public relations experts in our region,” said Michael Masseur, PRSA/SENE President and Senior Account Executive at RDW Group, Inc. “This year’s Excellence Awards winners and their clients represent a wide-range of public relations professionals who executed some incredible work over the last year.
