PR Power List
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about our first-ever PR Power List, which will appear in the October 15 issue. This special feature will rank the 25 most powerful people in the PR industry, including agency and corporate executives. While PRWeek’s editorial staff is making the ultimate decision, we do welcome your suggestions. We’ll be looking for people who can demonstrate excellence in several categories, including financial performance, client profile, thought leadership, external visibility, public service, professional affiliations, media/political influence, and mentoring. If you’d like to suggest someone, please post here or send an email to by Friday.
