Washington D.C. – 8 November 2023. It was an unforgettable night for SEC Newgate at the PRovoke Media Global SABRE Awards 2023, as they won Global Public Affairs/Corporate Agency of the Year.
Our CEO Fiorenzo Tagliabue, who was present with a delegation of colleagues (Jim Papa, Jade Floyd, and Irene Ferrario), dedicated the award to the whole of SEC Newgate: “This is a really great achievement for us and a wonderful acknowledgement of the outstanding work of our team of 1,300 colleagues across SEC Newgate Group’s offices: from New York to Milan, from London to Bogotà, from Paris to Sydney. While we have been shortlisted across a number of categories over the years, this is the first time that SEC Newgate has taken this top award as Global Public Affairs / Corporate Communications Agency of the year by Provoke Media. A recognition of the hard work and passion that we put into our work every single day, as well as our incredibly successful growth journey that started 30 years ago. Congratulations to everyone who made this happen!”
