We are thrilled to announce that the Holmes Report has recognised PRecious Communications as one of the top five PR Consultancies in Southeast Asia for 2019. The 2019 Asia-Pacific PR Consultancies of the Year are the result of an exhaustive research process involving more than 125 submissions and meetings with the best PR firms across the region.
Meanwhile, here is what the Holmes Report said about PRecious Communications while recognising the agency for the 2019 Southeast Asia PR Consultancies of the Year
PRecious Communications (Independent)
Lars Voedisch launched PRecious in 2012, at a time when several new Southeast Asian consultancies were springing up. Voedisch’s background, however, from senior roles at DHL, FleishmanHillard and H+K Strategies, marked PRecious out as one to watch, as did his expertise from running analytics consultancy Commetric. Unsurprisingly, then, PRecious has grown at a steady clip to more than 45people across Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia and Thailand, with revenues up 60% to S$4m.
The firm organises itself across three practice units: PRecious Inc is led by Melinda Illagan and focuses on global B2B enterprises across APAC; PRecious Life works with consumer brands, and its Sparks arm under Prayaank Gupta collaborates with numerous startups. Having started life as a classic media relations firm, PRecious has since broadened its approach considerably across crisis, influencer marketing and digital, underpinned by an evaluation focus on conversion and lead generation.
The firm’s client roster includes numerous startups, including Capillary Technologies, Electrify Asia, Hedera Hashgraph, Qualtrics, Travelstop, and Zilingo, along with consumer companies such as Bundesliga, German National Tourism Office, Lufthansa and Yotel, and B2B players like Experian, CrowdStrike, Kone, Qualtrics, McAfee, Outsystems and Software AG. Significantly, 80% of PRecious’ work comes from recommendations.
Campaign highlights, meanwhile, include supporting SABRE nominated campaigns such as the Munich Treasure Hunt for Lufthansa, and helping to drive Electrify Asia’s record token sale. — AS
