PRNEWS Chooses Covalent Logic For Agency Elite Top 100 List

PRNEWS, a leading authority for communications industry news and professional development, has chosen Covalent Logic for its 2020 Agency Elite Top 100 list of the most innovative and strategic communications, marketing and digital agencies in the U.S. Covalent Logic was the only agency selected in Louisiana.

“Inclusion on this elite list demonstrates Covalent Logic’s incredible record of innovative practices, exceptional results and attention to clients’ needs,” said Stafford Wood, Covalent Logic founder and president. “It shows how a boutique, Louisiana firm can compete with the best agencies, even the massive multinational ones.”

The list identifies firms with a variety of specializations and core competencies and scores each on more than a dozen criteria to choose the best 100. PRNEWS inquired about industry expertise, unique client solutions, company culture, new product and services offerings, response to COVID-19 and predictions for what will influence the practice in the future.

As it approaches its 15th anniversary, Covalent Logic has amassed more than 200 awards, including Adrians, Anvils, ADDYs, Bulldogs, Hermes, Lanterns, Magellans, MarComs, Quills, Stevies, Tellys, Thoths and VEMAs. The firm is led by Stafford Wood, who received three lifetime achievement awards in 2019 alone: the Public Relations Association of Louisiana—Baton Rouge First Circle Award; the American Advertising Federation Goldsby Lifetime Achievement Award; and induction into the Southern Public Relations Federation Hall of Fame. In 2019, Covalent Logic opened regional hubs in Austin, Texas, and the District of Columbia to provide availability, direct interaction, close partnership and a boots-on-the-ground approach to critical clients in these regions.
