Maitland/AMO CEO wins top Public Relations award
Neil Bennett, Maitland's CEO, last night received the Outstanding Contribution to City PR award from the Public Relations Consultants Association at their inaugural City & Financial PR Awards.
The special award was conferred by the judges for his work over the past 14 years in the PR industry. The 23 judges, who included leading fellow PR Professionals and senior journalists and editors, were asked to nominate their preferred candidate for the award.
Neil joined Maitland/AMO as Managing Partner in 2004 and became CEO in 2010. In his 12 years at Maitland/AMO, he has overseen many of the City’s largest IPOs and M&A transactions as well as advise on and help resolve a series of significant corporate issues and turnarounds.
Commenting on the award, Neil Bennett said “It is absolute honour to be recognised in this way. It came as a complete surprise to me and I could not have achieved this without the support and professionalism of all of my colleagues. I would particularly like to thank the judges and the PRCA for nominating me, and also apologise to everyone in the room for my dreadful acceptance speech.”26
