The agency received 15 awards and was a finalist for 18 different entries.

“As we celebrate our 50th year as an agency, we are beyond grateful for our clients who trust us to produce outstanding campaigns and results on their behalf,” said Sharon Tallach Vogelpohl, president and CEO of MHP/Team SI. “We are so proud of our talented PR team led by Kristen Nicholson, APR, one of the industry’s best and most strategic leaders. These awards are further proof of Kristen’s dedication to creating an innovative team culture that translates to award-winning success for our clients.”
