by | Nov 2, 2023

The only Boston firm recognized with honors in eight Public Relations categories.

BOSTON, MA (November 1, 2023) – Inc. Business Media has announced its second annual Power Partner Awards, honoring PR, events, and public affairs firm The Castle Group in eight Power Partner public relations categories. Castle is the only Boston- and New England-headquartered PR firm selected and was chosen based on feedback from ten Castle clients across industry sectors. Castle’s Power Partner Award covers general public relations, media relations, community relations, crisis communications, C-Suite visibility, internal/corporate communications, product PR and public affairs.

“We built The Castle Group on a strong partnership and our successful partnerships with clients mean everything to us – that clearly resonated with Inc.,” said Sandy Lish, Castle principal and co-founder. “It’s extra gratifying that it’s based on our clients’ feedback, and that our dedication to them and their success is both palpable and notable. Being the only Boston-headquartered firm in eight categories at the very heart of what we love to do is a major point of pride.”

“Trusted B2B partners provide guidance and expertise that founders rely on at various steps of their organization’s journey. Partners that possess a demonstrated ability to deliver quality support are at the core of entrepreneurship and help bring big ideas to life,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business Media.

A certified women-owned business founded in 1996, Castle has always valued leading on equity and working with like-minded partners. Its work has included opportunities such as directing the PR and events effort to unveil “The Embrace,” a first-of-its-kind monument honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King on Boston Common and its longstanding client relationships in energy, professional and financial services, real estate, education, healthcare, nonprofits, technology, and life sciences.

“We take great pride in delivering first-class results to our client partners, and in seeing all of our relationships—including clients, community and colleagues—as partnerships,” said Wendy Spivak, Castle principal and co-founder. “Whether it’s this recognition as an Inc. Power Partner, Sandy’s recent Boston Business Journal Power 50: Movement Maker honor, or our being named a 2023 Game Changer by the Joe Andruzzi Foundation, it’s gratifying to see our commitment to our partners widely recognized.”

The second annual Inc. Power Partner Awards recognizes B2B firms around the world in marketing and advertising, health and wellness, financial services, legal, logistics, and productivity, and more with proven track records supporting entrepreneurs and helping startups grow.
