In an unprecedented joint win for The Moore Agency, PRNEWS has named both Karen Moore, founder and CEO, and Terrie Ard, president and COO, to its 2023 list of Top Women Award winners.
Karen Moore is being honored in the Entrepreneurs category and Terrie Ard as a Change-Maker. They joined the other national and international winners at an awards celebration in New York City.
“This is a bucket list win for each of us,” Karen Moore said. “I started this company 30 years ago as a young entrepreneur with no office, no computer and no clients – just a strong reputation, some community connections and the will to make it work. Now, Moore is ranked among the top 50 largest public relations and public affairs agencies in the U.S., and we couldn’t be prouder.”
Moore and Ard are cultivating a staff culture that hails a 92% employee retention rate. Furthermore, nearly 25% of Moore team members have been with the agency for 10 years or more. The agency has been recognized for business growth and culture by Inc. 5000 as both a Fastest Growing Company and a Best Place to Work.
“Being named to this cohort of top women in PR is not only a milestone for our company but also validation of our conviction that growing our people is equally important as growing revenues,” Ard said. “I am grateful to work with such a talented and passionate team, every member of which works to deliver exceptional results for our clients.”
“PRNEWS is sending an important message with this unique recognition of two generations of an agency’s leadership,” said Jack Bergen, founder president of the PR Council and former Alcoa CCO and GCI Group CEO. “A mentorship culture ensures the leadership succession and stability that clients crave and that drives the vitality and growth of The Moore Agency.”
