FCM is celebrating a double award win at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations Midlands Awards 2021.

FCM’s managing director Karen McElroy scooped the Gold Award as Independent PR Practitioner of the Year and associate Bron Eames received the coveted Lifetime Achievement award for her services to the public relations industry.

Established in 2005 by Karen, FCM offers flexible, bespoke PR and communications services to businesses by working collaboratively with expert associates from across the region.

Speaking about the recognition from the PR industry body, Karen McElroy said:

“It’s fantastic to win these awards! Special congratulations go to Bron who is a valued associate of ours. It’s been a challenging year but receiving recognition at these awards and others we’ve been shortlisted for this year is a real boost.

“It’s also a clear signal that we are doing all the right things to achieve our mission to become a vital partner for ambitious growing businesses who are looking for value-for-money and flexible PR and communications expertise.”

Judges from the Chartered Institute of Public Relations commented:

“Judges were impressed by Karen’s commitment to the profession and how she is able to adapt and be agile for her clients, the true essence of an independent practitioner. What stood out for the judges was Karen’s ability to take a project, own it and deliver outstanding results which are recognised by the directors of her clients’ organisations. Karen should reap the benefits of her clients’ confidence in her and the judges hope that this award will help Karen demonstrate that she is the best in her field.”
