The PR Net Next Gen, 2023: August Twenty Eight

August Twenty Eight is an agency rich in culture and interdisciplinary experience, which is what makes them invaluable to their hospitality, lifestyle and design clients including a New York icon: The Plaza Hotel. Sisters and co-founders Anne-Cecile and Kimberley Blanchot have a unique, global approach, a fusion of their French upbringing and New York career moves in hospitality & travel PR, and food & beverage, respectively. The result is a multilingual agency (they speak English, French and Spanish) with a New York headquarters and newly opened Paris office. Their team has doubled in the past year, attracting talent with an impressive client roster as well as a healthy, balanced work environment: employees receive 100% medical coverage plus one month of contiguous remote work per year, and equitable and competitive pay for all based on cost of living.
