Red Hot Night at the Renaissance Awards for Red Havas

by Ellen Mallernee Barnes in News

Red Havas recently took home a remarkable 15 awards at the PRSA Pittsburgh Renaissance Awards.

Among the awards that team Red Havas racked up, we won Best of Show, including a whopping 100-point perfect score for the Transitions Change Agents campaign.

Additionally, we took home 13 total campaign awards for our work on Transitions Change Agents, the annual Transitions Academy event, the GEN 8 product launch and the Transitions Story Studio (a video studio to capture peer-to-peer content to educate eyecare professionals); as well as the Costa Lens Recycling Program; and MilliporeSigma’s Curiosity Cube media relations and reputation management.

We’re also proud of our “humble hero,” account executive Brian Ackermann, who was honored with the Member of the Year award for his incREDible work—particularly his tireless efforts on our Transitions and Sightbox accounts, including mastering social strategy and content for these businesses.

Brian was also recognized for his extensive contributions as a PRSA board member and as Young Professionals Committee co-chair. In these roles, he was heavily involved in revamping the Renaissance Awards show format.
