Magrino has coined 2023 as ‘The Launch Year,’ citing the bounce-back of multiple industries, and the business has plenty to show for it. The team has been busy managing high-profile openings (like the Tin Building by Jean-Georges and Omni Hotels & Resorts properties) while adjusting their service offerings to meet today’s client needs. Alongside their digital services, Magrino introduced 'The Collective,' a network of top experts and creatives to address specialized client needs, reinforcing their role as connectors in the industry for major events, campaigns and stories. The agency also doubled-down on data-driven decision-making this year, leveraging GWI Insights' global audience research (data from 2.7 billion digital consumers) to inform client strategies and business initiatives. Finally, Magrino’s staff of 60-plus PR pros stays in the know on the latest in culture and comms with ‘‘Pop to Pitch,” a team that meets weekly to discuss trending topics that are sent out company-wide to better inform timely pitches.
