Ardent Communications (ArdentComm) has just been conferred the Bronze Stevie Award for Most Innovative Public Relations Agency at the 2024 Asia Pacific Stevie Awards, showcasing its commitment to creative excellence.

This recognition follows ArdentComm’s 2023 finish as a finalist for Philippines PR Agency of the Year at the Campaign’s Agency of the Year Awards, solidifying its position as one of the top PR agencies in the region.

The award celebrates ArdentComm’s achievements that are built on the collective effort of its dedicated team, media partners, key opinion leaders (KOLs) and valued clients. It recognizes the hard work, passion and unwavering commitment of its team members who constantly push boundaries in PR strategy and execution.

“We are honored to be recognized among Asia’s finest PR agencies,” said Ana B. Pista, founder and CEO of ArdentComm. “This award reflects our team’s dedication and the trust our clients place in us. It inspires us to keep innovating and delivering impactful solutions that make a real difference.”

A culture of mentorship and teamwork

Founded in 1997, ArdentComm thrived in B2B tech PR, working with clients such as Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Symantec and Lenovo.

Recognizing the evolving landscape, ArdentComm expanded to include tech-lifestyle brands like Airbnb, Spotify and Disney+, becoming a leading multi-sector PR and integrated marketing communications agency. This strategic pivot fostered resilience in the post-pandemic world.

ArdentComm credits its success to a strong company culture that prioritizes mentorship and teamwork. Seasoned directors and managers personally invest in developing new talent, fostering a sense of unity and trust. This collaborative spirit empowers team members and encourages them to tackle challenges together.

“What sets the company apart is our PR leaders,” said Jasmin Rodil Cagsawa, managing director of ArdentComm. “Our seasoned directors and managers have made it their personal commitment to mentor new team members. They understand the value of shared insights, guidance and constructive feedback.”

“At ArdentComm, we hold firm to the principle that whether we sink or float, we are all on the same boat,” adds Maila Madrigalejo, PR business unit head of ArdentComm. “This transforms our company from a workplace into a tight-knit family where every member is genuinely invested in the success of their colleagues.”

The power of storytelling and team effort

ArdentComm champions the power of storytelling, crafting compelling narratives that resonate with audiences. Its campaigns showcase creativity, strategic insight and the ability to capture the essence of its clients’ brands.

By blending traditional PR tactics with modern digital strategies, ArdentComm strives to set a new standard for innovation. The company’s work spans diverse sectors, including technology, healthcare, consumer goods and more, with each campaign meticulously tailored to specific client needs.

One of the most recent campaigns that the ArdentComm team did with Spotify, a retainer client since 2022, was Kalye X. Bringing Spotify’s Kalye hip-hop playlist to life, Kalye X brought together artists, fans and the community to push the boundaries of Pinoy hip-hop. The campaign was recently recognized as a bronze winner for Best Music Marketing Campaign at the 2024 Festival of Media Asia-Pacific Awards.

Every member of ArdentComm’s team plays a vital role — from content creators and strategists, to media relations specialists and PR leads. “This success belongs to our incredible team. Their efforts define ArdentComm’s quality, setting a high industry standard,” beams Jasmin.

“Their passion, creativity and relentless drive are the foundation of our agency. This award recognizes their hard work and only serves to motivate us to continue striving for excellence,” she adds.

The agency also acknowledges its media and KOL partners whose collaboration has been instrumental in achieving outstanding results for clients.

Client trust: a cornerstone of success

ArdentComm fosters close working relationships with its clients, understanding their unique challenges and developing tailored strategies that deliver measurable outcomes. This client-centric approach has earned the company a reputation for excellence and reliability.

“We are deeply grateful to our clients for their unwavering trust and support,” shared Ana. “Their confidence motivates us to innovate and exceed expectations continuously. This award makes us want to continue on this path and set new standards in the industry.”

Today, the agency remains focused on exploring new storytelling frontiers, leveraging emerging technologies and harnessing data-driven insights to create even more impactful campaigns. It is also dedicated to fostering a culture of creativity and collaboration, empowering its team to push the boundaries of what is possible in public relations.

The Asia Pacific Stevie® Award recognition marks a significant milestone for ArdentComm, but for the agency, it’s just the starting point. With a firm commitment to innovation and excellence, the company is poised to continue shaping the future of the public relations landscape.

In the end, ArdentComm’s story is a testament to what can be achieved with passion, dedication and a commitment to innovation. As the agency looks forward to the future, it remains focused on delivering exceptional client results.
