Touchdown ranked a top 20 technology PR agency by O’Dwyer’s
By Allie May, Account Coordinator
A bright spot of news for the Touchdown team during the pandemic has been seeing the business outperform the PR sector and gain valuable recognition in the annual O’Dwyer’s 2021 global PR agency rankings report.
Our 14% annual growth during 2020 wasn’t just another record year – it propelled Touchdown to #19 in the national technology PR agency rankings where we feature alongside many other established and admired PR agencies. We are in great company! As one of the newest members of the Touchdown team I am extremely proud to have joined such a high-performing PR organization.
I spoke to the founder and CEO James Carter about why Touchdown was enjoying strong growth during such a difficult time for many agencies and he said: “Despite Covid, we’ve continued to see high demand from our client base of B2B technology innovators, from cybersecurity and artificial intelligence to data management and digital transformation. These are all markets that have thrived during the pandemic because they help solve many of the communications, collaboration and other technology challenges businesses faced in lockdown.”
I was also pleased to read that O’Dwyer’s ranked Touchdown as the second largest independent PR firm in Austin after global leader Edelman. Moving to an Austin-based international PR agency was very appealing to me and I’m excited to be getting the opportunity to collaborate on international PR campaigns with new colleagues across Europe and the APAC region.
As expected, Touchdown is hiring to meet growing customer needs and my stint as ‘newbie’ lasted just a few days! The team in Austin also recently welcomed Account Coordinators Joshua Georgiou and Myra Austin.
