The Distinguished Service Award honours an individual who has strengthened the role of public relations and society through service, writing, research, speaking, or teaching.

We are thrilled to announce that Text100 CEO Aedhmar Hynes has received the Arthur W. Page Society’s Distinguished Service Award for 2016. The award was presented to Aedhmar at the Page Society’s 33rd Annual Conference, held in London on September 12.


The Distinguished Service Award honours those individuals who have devoted themselves to strengthening the role of public relations in business and society. Winners are leaders whose counsel is sought by others, who gives selflessly of their time and talent, and who possess a distinguished record of service to the profession in leadership positions.

“Throughout my career, I’ve been passionate about telling stories, giving my clients a voice, and seeing the impact that effective communication can have on a company’s success,” said Aedhmar. “I am truly humbled to receive this prestigious honour from an organisation that means so much to me.”

In addition to being named the Agency “Milestones in Mentoring” honouree by the Plank Center for Leadership in Public Relations earlier this year, Aedhmar was also recognized as one of the 50 most influential people in PR in PRWeek’s Power List 2016. She is a Page Society trustee, having served as co-chair of the association’s Thought Leadership Committee and currently serves as co-chair of the Page Globalization Committee, which is dedicated to making the Arthur W. Page Society a truly global organization.
