Cision’s Mark Weiner honoured with IPR lifetime achievement award

Mark Weiner, Cision’s chief insights officer, has been honoured as the 2018 winner of the prestigious Jack Felton Medal for Lifetime Achievement by The Institute for Public Relations (IPR).

The medal was awarded to recognise Weiner’s contribution to the advancement of research, measurement and evaluation in public relations and corporate comms.

Weiner will receive the award at the IPR’s Annual Distinguished Lecture and Awards Dinner in New York on 28 November. The award was created to recognise individuals who share former IPR CEO Jack Felton’s philosophy that research and measurement are key factors in advancing PR’s importance as a profession.

“The high esteem in which I hold the honour is underscored by my personal and professional admiration for Jack Felton. I’m grateful to The Institute for Public Relations for recognising my lifetime commitment to our profession,” said Weiner. “I am particularly obliged to my colleagues and the clients we serve, from whom I continue to learn.”

Kevin Akeroyd, Cision CEO, added: “Mark is a truly accomplished leader in our industry, with a range of diverse and impactful achievements from the brand side, agency side and the technology side. We are pleased to have him as part of the Cision family.”
