Mower starts 2021 with top industry honor: City & State’s Political PR Power 50

City & State calls out Mower’s Eric Mower, Mary Gendron and John Lacey among New York’s top communications pros confronting today’s “unprecedented challenges”

Mower, one of the nation’s largest independent marketing, advertising and public relations agencies, was honored today by City & State, which recognized the firm and three of its most senior leaders among the Political PR Power 50 in New York state.

In its second annual Political PR Power 50, City & State named three Mower leaders among the top communications professionals who are confronting unprecedented times through their involvement in the world of New York politics and policy. At number 19 are Chairman and CEO Eric Mower, Senior Vice President and Managing Director Mary Gendron, and Vice President and Director of Public Affairs John Lacey.

This marks Eric Mower’s second appearance on the list, which ranks executives based on their firms’ noteworthy accomplishments, number of employees, size and portfolio of clients, and influence in assisting clients regarding public matters.

Since he began in 1968, Mower and a continually growing roster of talented colleagues have grown the firm from a single office in Syracuse, N.Y., to a national leader with four additional New York locations—New York City, Buffalo, Rochester, and Albany—as well as Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, N.C., and Cincinnati.

Mower’s latest win coincides with today’s Ad Age Best Places to Work 2021 award announcement and comes on the heels of a number of awards and honors in 2020. These include a Global ACE Award, several ANA B2 gold awards and gold and silver in HSMAI’s annual Adrian Awards. The agency made the Chief Marketer 200 as a top B2B Brand Engagement Agency for the third consecutive year and made its fifth appearance in eight years among PRNews’ annual Top Places to Work.
