Tanner Friedman and Pfizer Awarded for Innovative Reputation/Brand Management Campaign
May 05, 2010
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - Tanner Friedman Strategic Communications and Pfizer Inc. were honored recently for an innovative campaign with a Gold PRoof Award in the Reputation/Brand Management category. The PRoof Awards are presented annually by the West Michigan Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (WMPRSA). The winning campaign was executed in Wisconsin in 2009.
In the wake of negative news coverage in Wisconsin about the biopharmaceutical industry and Pfizer specifically, Pfizer's Worldwide Communications team and its strategic communications agency, Tanner Friedman, collaborated with Pfizer's sales and public affairs units to launch a targeted, multi-platform media campaign.
This project included direct engagement with news media, editorial-page outreach and radio advertising that was leveraged with special programming on-air and online. The effort elevated Pfizer's presence in Wisconsin, allowed the company's voice to be heard on issues of importance and demonstrated support for the educational role of Pfizer sales colleagues. The awards ceremony was held on April 29 at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.
