Standing out in the dynamic field of public relations requires foresight and the ability to adapt and innovate. This year, Ragan’s PR Daily Awards have recognized such excellence, and we are proud to announce that Mindgruve has been honored for our outstanding PR work with First Horizon Bank.

Mindgruve was hired during an uncertain time for the bank. After a proposed merger fell through, First Horizon Bank wanted to improve brand trust and reputation with increased visibility and credibility. We were tasked with bolstering the bank’s corporate communications program, specifically integrating its priorities with the bank’s marketing goals. But we also had to expand C-suite thought leadership.

In addition to tapping C-suite executives to post more engaging content on LinkedIn, we conducted media relations and pitching training. Then we worked on media placements, thought leadership essays and speaking engagements. The results? Our efforts secured over 160,000 placements for thought leadership articles, plus C-suite interviews in major news outlets.

“The success of our campaign with First Horizon Bank underscores the power of a collaborative approach,” Robley added. “The fusion of our team’s expertise with the client’s deep industry knowledge led to such a successful outcome. This award is a testament to our dedication and skill in navigating complex communications challenges.”

As we celebrate this prestigious accolade, we remain committed to going above and beyond in public relations and marketing. Our journey continues to create buzzworthy news and targeted content that helps brands stand out from the competition. Here’s to many more years of helping our clients grow their business.
