BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sharon Merrill Associates, Inc. has been named by Acquisition International, a global corporate finance publication, as Most Outstanding Strategic Communications Team for 2017.
“It is extremely rewarding to lead the firm whose name has become synonymous with excellence in investor relations and communications strategy,” says Maureen Wolff, chief executive officer of Sharon Merrill. “We continue to innovate in all facets of our practice, from investor relations to M&A, proxy/activist defense and crisis communications.”
Acquisition International magazine’s awards are given annually to firms and individuals who honor innovation, customer care and the continued growth and improvement of their businesses. The awards are based solely on merit and go through a closely monitored nomination, judging and selection process.
“Strategic thinking starts with active listening,” says agency President David Calusdian. “Whether we are helping to steer a CEO through a crisis or giving presentation training to a podium-shy executive, we make sure we have a deep understanding of the businesses and the issues involved.”
“Technology has changed the medium, the pace and the consumption of financial news exponentially, but it has not changed what the market is looking for – a strong, growing and reputable company with a good story,” Wolff said. “Our clients rely on us to develop the messaging that prepares them to communicate their strategy and prospects in a way that resonates with stakeholders. I’m proud of the position we have attained as a trusted advisor to our clients. And we’ve fostered many great long-term relationships in the process.”
