PAN Communications, an integrated public relations, content marketing and digital media agency for the technology, consumer and healthcare industries, marked the first quarter of 2014 with several new client wins, record momentum, and growth. When compared to the first quarter of 2013, the agency reported an 18 percent increase in revenue. The firm also strengthened its management team, enhanced service offerings, expanded its global partnerships and added employee enrichment programs.
Agency president and founder, Philip A. Nardone Jr., ties the recent successes back to core company values and a client-first approach. “2014 is off to a great start and we look forward to continued momentum over the course of the year. With the stellar talent that we are attracting to our firm, the client brands that have recently hired PAN, and the employee enrichment investments we have been making, I believe this will be a banner and decisive year in our firm’s evolution.”
PAN also recently expanded its involvement with the global network, Whiteoaks International Network. The agency is currently working with several clients that are based in Europe, South America and Asia. Some international accounts PAN works with include CloudSense, SDL and Brazilian Footwear Association.
PAN added two new senior executives to its team. Dan Martin joins PAN as a vice president spanning the firm’s healthcare and technology clients. A 17-year veteran of public relations, Dan’s client experience ranges from start-ups to Fortune 100. He has worked in a broad array of industries including Healthcare IT, life sciences, medical devices and enterprise technology. Prior to PAN, Dan worked at several technology and healthcare communications agencies in Boston including Golin Harris, Miller Consulting and Brodeur Partners.
PAN also named Jennifer Bonney as its first creative director. Jen has worked in the world of graphic design for over fifteen years, serving most recently at Cone Communications. Her fully integrated design and print production experience along with her knowledge of best branding practices will be a major asset to PAN, as the agency aligns its creative offerings with more visual storytelling services.
PAN rolled out its comprehensive Wellness Program PANFIT. PAN’s employees are participating in several programs to help support a healthy mind, body and soul. Sessions include on-site exercise classes, healthy eating workshops, individual sessions with a certified wellness coach, 5K challenges, and onsite massages to name just a few. PANFIT also includes learning opportunities for non-work related topics such as first-time home-buying, financial management, and retirement planning. Furthermore, the agency recently participated in the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day. PAN employees dressed in active wear and many walked the streets of Boston in support of healthy hearts.
“Our people are our biggest asset and the reason clients come to PAN,” concluded Nardone. “The way for our agency to build on this momentum is through the continued growth and development of our team.”
