- Public relations and social media, present
Two PR professionals from Orange County, Calif. nab the nation's top Silver Anvil trophy from the Public Relations Society of American. At a special awards gala in New York City, Danielle Alvarez of Boost Mobile accepts the top honor with Ted Nguyen from Genevieve Gorder of HGTV's hit show "Design Star."
Ted Nguyen is a nationally award-winning public relations and communications professional with 20 years of developing and executing cost-effective programs.
His most-recent accomplishment includes winning the communications industry’s most-prestigious honor — the national Silver Anvil award from the Public Relations Society of America in 2008 for best issues management program during a 10-day strike of bus drivers.
The previous year, he and his team won the national award of excellence from PRSA for a comprehensive community relations program for construction outreach for one of the state’s largest and fastest freeway widening projects.
In 2007, Ted was honored as the “PR person of the year” by PR News magazine at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
The Public Relations Society of America awards its highest national honor to an effective crisis communications and issues management program.
Ted has garnered a solid reputation and grounded his communications team because he is a strategic thinker, a driver for innovation, a problem-solver and an ethical consensus builder.
He lead his team to be among the first public agency to utilize social media and was a pioneer in launching a comprehensive Web site detailing the progress of federal stimulus funds for transportation.
In April 2010, Ted Nguyen’s “public e-volvement” effort won the top communications award for best social media program in the Golden State by the California Association of Public Information Officials.
He has served on the board for the Orange County Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America and has been involved in dozens of volunteer community efforts to enrich the lives of families and children in Southern California.
In 2007, he helped raise funds to provide shoes, blankets, clothing and other essential items for an orphanage in Siem Reap, Cambodia. He raised funds through his network of compassionate professionals and personally delivered the much-needed items for the children in poverty-stricken Cambodia.
