Matter Wins Four Agency of the Year Awards Since 2013

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. Matter Communications was presented with a Stevie® Award in the Company of the Year category in the 12th Annual American Business Awards in Chicago Friday night. The honor was the fourth PR Agency/Company of the year award collected by the PR and social media agency since 2013.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Friday, June 13 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park Hotel. More than 400 nominees and their guests attended.

“Winning a ‘Company of the Year’ award is an honor I’m thrilled to accept on behalf of our hard-charging PR staff,” said Matter Founder and CEO Scott Signore. “I’d also like to congratulate our fellow nominees, because you have to be doing a lot of great things for an organization to receive such a prestigious honor.”

More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. Matter Communications was nominated in the Company of the Year category for Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations.

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 240 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.
