LaVoieHealthScience (LHS), an integrated public and investor relations agency focused on advancing health and science innovations, today announced it is the recipient of two 2019 Bell Ringer Awards. The agency was awarded a Bronze Bell for Investor/Financial Relations Campaign for its work with client Newron Pharmaceuticals SpA (SWX: NWRN) and a Merit Award for Executive Thought Leadership Campaign for client Xontogeny LLC.
LHS was recognized for its investor relations work on Newron’s 2018 Research and Development (R&D) Day held this past October in New York City. An Italian-based company with a primarily European investor base, Newron sought to expand its investor presence in the United States. The LHS team crafted a comprehensive campaign to expand U.S. and global investor visibility for Newron, including creation of a scientific and investor-oriented R&D Day, strategic investor outreach and development of a U.S.-centric marketing strategy to secure both an in-person and global online audience for the event.
For client Xontogeny, LHS created a strategic executive thought leadership campaign for Chairman and CEO Chris Garabedian—an industry pioneer with more than 25 years of experience guiding and building biopharma companies to ensure development success. Building on his position as an industry leader, the campaign included an exclusive webinar series with Xconomy, strategic thought leadership placements on key conference panels and placements in business, financial and industry media outlets—totaling 16 unique pieces of coverage.
“It’s an honor to be acknowledged again this year by the PR Club of New England. This is a well-deserved recognition for the talented integrated investor and public relations team at LHS,” stated Donna L. LaVoie, President and CEO.
The Bell Ringer Awards are held annually by the PR Club of New England and celebrate the outstanding achievements of the region’s public relations and marketing professionals.
In 2018, LHS was awarded the Silver Bell Ringer Award by the PR Club of New England in the Investor/Financial Relations Campaign category. The agency has won a total of 12 Bell Ringer Awards since 2009.
