23-11-2006 / source: Pinnacle
The 30th Anniversary of Pinnacle Worldwide was celebrated recently as part of the international organization of independently owned public relations firm's Board of Directors meeting held in London. Attendees included 60 principals, top executives and guests from 34 Pinnacle member firms representing the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific.
  In addition to commemorating the longevity of the organization, the group welcomed its first non-North American president - Hannemie Stitz of Public Relations Partners (GmbH) based in Frankfurt, Germany - as the 20th president of Pinnacle. According to Stitz, her election underscores Pinnacle's commitment to a global perspective. We are the second-largest organization of independent PR firms in the world, with the longest-running continuous history, said Stitz. In the last five years alone, Pinnacle members have served 138 international clients and channelled 174 international referrals, she observed. Looking to the future, Stitz pointed out the importance of a holistic and global perspective and Pinnacle's readiness for a rapidly changing world. During her two-year term, Stitz's global perspective will include a focus on the specific needs of each region currently served, as well as expansion into the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries. As one of the leading independent PR networks, it is essential that we offer our clients access to the best partners in each of these countries. In addition to new partner identification, Pinnacle's short-term focus includes continuing professional development for all partner firms, plus identification of new international opportunities and expertise to meet specific client need, she said.
