Weber Shandwick, Inc
Description About Us When Weber Shandwick was formed we set out a mission that, by design, has no end date. We committed to be \engaging always.\ We knew then, and more so now, that being open, aspirational and entrepreneurial is what it takes to engage people and deliver business impact in a rapidly changing environment.\u00a0Our journey to date might surprise you. From a powerful PR base, we\u2019ve built-in one of the world\u2019s largest, global social agencies. Then we added Mediaco, a pioneering, award-winning content consulting and publishing operation. And today, we continue to lead digital and advertising assignments for some of the world's most enduring companies and social causes.\u00a0Along the way, we\u2019ve been validated repeatedly by Ad Age\u2019s \u201cA List,\u201d creative leadership at Cannes Lions and global frontrunner status in the PR category. Yet despite our industry-leading status among marketing services agencies, we're still just getting started. We strive to bring our collective intelligence, open architecture model and continuous learning to our work, not to mention agility required to deliver it.\u00a0We\u2019re strategists, builders, analysts, producers, designers, creatives, technologists. And we unite around big ideas.\u00a0So \u201cengaging always.\u201d is really about innovative change.
