Agency Promoted Client Kreindler & Kreindler’s Legal Expertise Globally in the Wake of the Deliberate Fatal Crash of Germanwings Flight 9525
Carmel, NY, June 15, 2016 . . . The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the industry’s leading professional organization, awarded Winuk Communications, Inc. with its coveted 2016 Bronze Anvil Award, recognizing the PR agency’s work last year on behalf of its client, law firm Kreindler & Kreindler LLP. The award for “excellence in media relations” results from the agency’s public relations program executed in the immediate aftermath of the deliberate, fatal crash of Germanwings Flight 9525, one of the biggest global news stories of 2015.
On March 24, 2015, the co-pilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 locked the pilot out of the cockpit and deliberately crashed the plane into the French Alps, killing himself and all 149 other crew members and passengers on board. The incident immediately became the biggest news story in the world, and continued to garner global attention for weeks as the investigation unfolded and the facts of the tragedy became clear.
