Inmarsat scoops two prestigious PR industry awards
Inmarsat received two prestigious accolades at the annual PRCA public relations awards in London last night.
Chris McLaughlin, Senior Vice President, External Affairs and Marketing Communications, was presented with the Mark Mellor Outstanding Contribution to the Industry award, named after the late MD of PR agency Firefly. The Crisis Management award, which recognises work done to handle difficult issues in a crisis situation, also went to Inmarsat.
The award was handed to Chris by Firefly Communications CEO Claire Walker MPRCA, Mark Mellor’s widow. She said: “This award is for the PR industry’s unsung heroes and heroines. Those who support from behind the scenes, keeping calm, sticking to long-term goals and commitments, just resolutely getting on with what needs to be done and making real progress.Highly regarded
“This is about going above and beyond your remunerated position, it’s about giving time and effort for the good of the PR industry. But clearly, only the most highly regarded and respected PR professionals could be recipients.”
Chris joined Inmarsat in 2004 and operates both an in-house team and a global network of communication agencies. He has been an industry representative on two government committees and is very active in presenting space industry issues to government and the public.
