SALT LAKE CITY--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Method Communications today announced that for the second consecutive year it was honored at MountainWest Capital Network’s (MWCN) annual Utah 100 Awards as an “Emerging Elite” company in Utah. The accolade reflects Method's rapid growth and serves as the latest validation of the agency's unique and effective approach to providing exceptional public relations services for its clients.
“We firmly believe that results speak loudest, and our impressive growth is a direct reflection of our ability to consistently deliver strategic PR results that rival any agency in the country for clients across a broad range of industries”
The “Emerging Elite” recognizes Utah-based companies with less than five years of operation that show significant promise for future growth and success. Since launching in 2010, Method has become one of the fastest-growing PR agencies in the country, with an impressive client roster that includes a who's who in Utah and beyond. Currently, about half of the agency's business is comprised of clients in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.
“We firmly believe that results speak loudest, and our impressive growth is a direct reflection of our ability to consistently deliver strategic PR results that rival any agency in the country for clients across a broad range of industries,” said David Parkinson, co-founder and CEO of Method Communications. “We are pleased that our hard work on behalf of our clientele has been recognized by inclusion in the ‘Emerging Elite’ once again, and we look forward to continuing along our ambitious growth trajectory in 2014 and beyond.”
Method’s client roster includes scores of influential companies and individuals in a broad range of industries, including:
- The Provo, Utah-based home automation giant Vivint
- The Salt Lake City education technology company Instructure
- The mobile advertising startup Kiip, founded and led by Silicon Valley darling Brian Wong
- Quarterly Co., a Hollywood firm headed by Netflix cofounder Mitch Lowe
- JetBlue chairman Joel Peterson
- Many of the companies and charities connected to the late billionaire businessman and philanthropist James LeVoy Sorenson
Method has experienced exponential growth in revenue and employees each year in business and has led transformational campaigns to raise the visibility of its clients. In the past year alone, the Method team has secured pundit status for Kiip founder Brian Wong on Bloomberg TV's popular “Taking Stock” program and leveraged national media exposure to highlight Vivint's pivot into the home automation space ahead of its $2 billion acquisition by Blackstone, among many other high-profile successes.
Most recently, Method Communications helped broker a partnership between Instructure and AMC to create a free online college course inspired by the popular TV series “The Walking Dead.” Method also planned and executed a media outreach plan that yielded more than 1 billion impressions from 1,000 original stories, highlighted by print stories in USA Today and The Wall Street Journal and Jay Leno mentioning it during his “Tonight Show” monologue.
“When we first hired Method, we wanted to leverage PR to help break into the national conversation about open online learning and differentiate ourselves from other companies in the industry and they have absolutely delivered,” said Devin Knighton, director of public relations at Instructure. “With strategic guidance and precision in execution, our partnership with AMC has resulted in a powerful story about experimentation in open online learning that has commanded the attention of the educational community.”
