It’s only April but W2O Group is off to a fast start in 2013. Last month, we proudly recapped our highlights from 2012 in our year end wrap up post. In March, we also enjoyed a successful SXSW where we collected tons of content from our clients, partners and friends of W2O, held two open houses and served up some top notch BBQ at Franklin’s. In addition, we were named the number two healthcare PR firm by O’Dwyers and made a decision to get “greener” by deciding to not print any more business cards. Last but not least, we proudly promoted over fifty of our employees — a sure sign of our overall corporate health!

Building on all this exciting news, today we learned that we were named the number one PR firm in Texas by O’Dwyers. Even more impressive is that we did it with just a presence in Austin — unlike some of the other agencies on the list, we have no official presence in Dallas or Houston.

As we concentrate on Austin as our digital hub, it’s important to remember that we continue to maintain focus on all aspects of our business including corporate communications, influencer engagement and training. Bringing the best of these “communications” offerings combined with our world class analytics, social engagement, agile content and strategy is where we know that we add the most value to our clients. It also helps us stay competitive when it comes to recruiting new talent (hint: we are hiring across all of our offices for multiple positions).

Of course being named number one in the second most populated state in the United States is quite the honor. But for those that know us, you know we are not ones to rest on our laurels. We have our sights set on being number one in the U.S. and once that’s under our belt, number one in the world. That may be a few years off yet but we are hungry, motivated and excited to build on our momentum. Building the agency of the future takes work but we are enjoying doing it, one success at a time.
