Hanover has been awarded the prestigious title of European Corporate and Financial Agency of the Year at the 2021 EMEA SABRE Awards.

Hosted by the leading industry observer PRovoke Media, the EMEA SABRE Awards celebrates the best public relations agencies and people from across the region as well as campaigns that demonstrate the highest levels of strategic planning, creativity and business results. This year the awards have paid tribute to the industry’s remarkable resilience and ability to drive change amidst the pandemic. The awards saw close to 2,000 entries, with the finalists selected by a judging panel comprised of more than 50 industry leaders.

Despite the challenging circumstances experienced across the industry in 2020, Hanover’s Corporate and Financial offering – building on significant growth in 2019 – continued to thrive. Thanks to a raft of new clients, a continued focus on delivering brilliant work that has a genuine impact (as one client told us, we “literally kept the business running in lockdown”), and an unbeatable team culture where consultants at all levels feel valued, Hanover Corporate has experienced double digit growth for the third year in a row.

These objectives were achieved thanks to all levels of the team delivering solutions that made everyone feel comfortable and included. This – we felt – was a true indicator of the strength of our culture.

On receiving the award, Hanover’s CEO and founder Charles Lewington said: “This is a terrific achievement for our teams across EMEA. In 2017 Hanover was awarded the title of Global Public Affairs Agency of the Year at the SABRE Awards. Four years later and our Corporate Practice has been named as European Corporate and Financial Agency of the Year. By listening to our client needs, we have grown to become an industry leader in corporate communications with true trusted advisor status, enhancing recognition, reputation, and resilience for some of the world’s biggest businesses. It is a tribute to the whole business but particularly the hard work of the pan-EMEA corporate teams. One of the fastest-growing agencies in the industry, delivering consistent double-digit growth, Hanover provides a full suite of communications services to clients in healthcare, financial services, technology, media, energy, FMCG, industrial, and sport.”
