This June marked Wachsman PR’s 18th month in business, having been established in December 2015. With the launch of a new office and the growth of the blockchain industry, the first half of 2017 has been an adventure we feel is worth sharing.
In April 2017, Wachsman PR opened our European HQ in Dublin, Ireland. Led by Irish-native Emma Walker, the Dublin office caters for the ever-growing European market. Despite its small size, Ireland boasts a business-friendly environment, world-class talent, grade A infrastructure, a rising fintech sector, and a “can do” attitude that mirrors our approach here at Wachsman PR.
A Growing Team
Wachsman PR’s team grew threefold during the first half of 2017, with the hiring of 13 new employees. Our New York team was delighted to welcome Amy Longo, Elizabeth Fitzgerald, Caroline Baker, Kerry Close, Casey Craig, Aubrey Strobel, Devin Shorey, Reid Yager, and Amanda Woodward to the Wall Street office. We’re still hiring! Once launched in April 2017, our European HQ added Jack Moloney, Sarah McCarthy, Tom Curran-Levett and Alex Sheehan to the Dublin office bringing their total number up to five, with two more staff set to join over the next few weeks.
With the establishment of our internship program, three interns commenced at Wachsman PR early this quarter: Jessica Glomb, Isobel Black and Mycayla O’Bryan. We wish each of them the best of luck as they return to college this September.
New Clients Onboard
During the first half of this year, Wachsman PR was privileged to welcome over 13 clients from 8 different countries worldwide, to our two offices. These include Aragon, Bitcoin Suisse, Kik, Token Summit, Plynk, SONM, Crypto Valley Association, TaaS, CoFound.it, ID2020, CakeCodes, ZenCash, and TokenCard.
In May 2017, thousands descended on New York City to attend Consensus 2017 and the first Token Summit. Wachsman PR was proud to sponsor Consensus and partner with Token Summit, experiencing the growing popularity of Blockchain conferences and the outstanding growth in the space, a welcome and exciting development.
In addition, we attended numerous conferences all over the world including hosting the very first ICO conference ever — the Blockchain Conference Fort Lauderdale — as well as MoneyConf 2017 in Madrid, Berlin Blockchain Expo, and the Dublin Tech Summit and Inspirefest in Ireland.
Silver Medal Winners
Wachsman PR attended the PR World Awards in June 2017, where we received the Silver Medal for Public Relations Agency of the Year (Single Boutique Office)
Just one month into Q3, we already look forward to what lies ahead for not just Wachsman PR but the industry, one of the fastest growing sectors in the world.
