The highest honour was bestowed on founder and CEO of AM O’Sullivan PR, Ann-Marie O’Sullivan, who was been conferred with the title of Life Fellow by the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII).
This followed a unanimous vote by PRII members at the organisation’s recent AGM. Life Fellows have, by example, championed the highest standards and implementation of the profession.
The award sees her join a group of 28 distinguished public relations professionals, including her father Robin O’Sullivan.
Robin and Ann-Marie are the first ever father-daughter duo to receive this accolade, which is a testament to their contributions to the Irish public relations industry, and their commitment to the development of the industry in Cork.
Speaking about the award, Ann-Marie said: “I am delighted to be conferred as a PRII Life Fellow. Joining the list of esteemed practitioners is truly an honour, and one that I am thrilled to share with my father, Robin.
“This honour is a recognition of the standards that we set at AM O’Sullivan PR – to deliver results, consistently exceed targets and execute campaigns with integrity, creativity and professionalism.”
A former chair of PRCA (Ireland), Ann-Marie is the current chair of the UCC Alumni Board. She has served on the boards of Cork Chamber, daa Plc and Good Shepherd Cork.
