EMA Named an Economic Champion for CenterState New York

Eric Mower and Associates has been named a 2010 Economic Champion by the CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity. EMA and other honorees were recognized for helping to drive the region’s economy through capital expenditures, new hires, expansion or relocation, and state or national recognition.

CenterState CEO recognized award recipients at the 8th Annual Economic Champions Luncheon in Syracuse on Oct. 14. Companies were nominated as Economic Champions by peers, employees and staff.

EMA has offices across Upstate New York in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Albany. The Syracuse office is the base of operations for EMA Group B2B and home to a large number of the agency’s total public relations staff.

In December, EMA moved its 115-person Syracuse office to a new collaborative, creative space at Jefferson Clinton Commons in Armory Square. The new space has helped to accommodate the firm’s growth and encourage collaboration among team members and professional disciplines. In 2008, after the combination of EMA and Mark Russell and Associates, EMA’s Syracuse office grew by 43 employees and launched a new digital/direct practice group.

EMA has been recognized several times this past year by industry trade publications and professional organizations. EMA was named a finalist for a 2010 PRWeek “Agency of the Year Award” in the small PR agency category and a runner-up in the midsize business-to-business agency category in BtoB magazine’s 2009 Top Agency Special Report. EMA has been named a recipient and finalist for prestigious national awards, including those from the Business Marketing Association, PRWeekPR News and BtoB.

EMA was also included in this year’s “Top Agency” lists from Advertising Age, BtoB, PROMO and PRWeek.

CenterState CEO is a nonprofit regional growth organization serving 12 counties in the heart of New York State to achieve economic growth and prosperity through partnerships, planning, and problem-solving.
