Cofounder Curtis Sparrer named Public Relations Professional of the Year
SAN FRANCISCO—May 20, 2021—Bospar, the boutique PR firm that puts tech companies on the map, took home 10 trophies in this year’s Bulldog Awards. The two coveted gold trophies include being awarded B2B Agency of the Year and Bospar cofounder Curtis Sparrer being named Public Relations Professional of the Year.
Bulldog, the only PR awards program selected by journalists, awarded Bospar eight silver awards. They are Agency That Gets Results; Best Industry-Focused Agency; Most Innovative Agency; Midsize Agency of the Year; and Best Technology/Software Campaign for “Making Work From Home Actually Work,” the agency’s campaign on behalf of client Prodoscore. Bulldog gave Sparrer silver awards for Leader of the Year; Media Relationship Professional of the Year; and PR Professional Who Makes a Difference.
“Pinch me,” said Sparrer. “I want to thank the PR industry and Bulldog journalist panel for recognizing the incredible work that Bospar has done in the B2B space. The typical B2B reporter receives between 100 to 200 pitches each day, so it’s a testament to our Politely Pushy® values that we were able to impress the judges with our results.”
Bospar’s leadership and staff have received their fair share of industry recognition during the past year.
Just last week, PRovoke Media named the agency the winner of the Northern American SABRE award in the category of e-commerce.
