PRCA and PRII are delighted to announce that Onclusive will sponsor the PRCA Agency of the Year categories as part of the Awards for Excellence in Public Relations 2022.

The newly formed global media monitoring and measurement business was launched in January 2022 following the acquisitions and merger of Kantar Reputation Intelligence, US-based analytics experts Onclusive and media relations platform PRgloo by tech investor Symphony Technology Group ‘STG’. Adopting the name Onclusive, the combined company is a new global media monitoring, measurement and workflow management partner for PR and communications.

“This is a great opportunity for Onclusive to help celebrate the success of the best Public Relations consultancies in Ireland as well as introduce our new company, its technology and insights-led expertise which will help them into the future,” said Rachel Leonard, Commercial Director for Onclusive in Ireland.

The PRCA Agency of the Year Award, sponsored by Onclusive, recognises two PRCA member agencies which delivered consistently excellent work over the past year, helping their clients reach their organisational objectives. There will be two awards in this category: one for agencies with 1-10 employees; and one for agencies with 11 and more employees.

“We are delighted that Onclusive are supporting one of the key categories in this year’s Awards for Excellence in Public Relations and helping recognise the performance and achievements of our member PR agencies over the past year.” Dr Martina Byrne, PRCA and PRII Chief Executive commented on the announcement.
