Miami – June 9, 2010 – rbb Public Relations, a leading national marketing public relations firm, was named a winner of the 2010 Good to Great® Awards presented by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce at the organization’s recently held annual Goals Conference.

The Sixth Annual South Florida Good to Great Awards program honors companies based in South Florida that embody ideas from Jim Collins’ best-selling business book, “Good to Great.” Created by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce along with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, the program spotlights the winning strategies of successful local companies throughout the tri-county region that have achieved greatness in their mission and established themselves as industry leaders. rbb was chosen from among three finalists in the small business category.

The winning companies were selected for showing a pattern of transitioning from good to great performance over a four-year period while demonstrating proven leadership and a solid workforce base. The firm went from “good to great” through an unwavering commitment to engage in results-oriented best practices, a pioneering philosophy to make an “employee-driven workforce” the core of its business operations, investing and cultivating talented professionals at every level, and proactively creating innovative solutions to stay ahead in a dynamic industry.

“It doesn’t get much better than being told by respected sources that you are a great company,” said rbb CEO and managing partner Christine Barney. “rbb is constantly evolving and seeks not just better, but the best ways, to serve our clients, encourage our staff, and deliver results that benefit everyone involved.”

Since its inception in 2001, rbb Public Relations has amassed a strong client base including some of Florida’s top companies such as Florida Power & Light, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, the Florida Marlins, Flagler Development, and Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra, among others. Building upon the strength of its regional clientele and consistent industry recognition, the firm continues to attract more national business, including Homewood Suites by Hilton, AMResorts, Bijoux Terner, Costa Maya, Zumba Fitness, Ladenburg Thalman and Global Keratin.

rbb is the only Florida firm to win every major public relations industry award, including being named “Boutique Agency of the Year” in 2009 by The Holmes Report and “Agency of the Year” in 2008 by PRWeek Magazine, two of the industry’s leading publications. For three years running, rbb was recognized as one of Wall Street Journal’s “Top Small Workplaces,” and named one of the Inc Magazine’s 5,000 fastest growing companies in 2009.
