John J. Seng, Founder of Health and Science Communications Agency Spectrum, Inducted into National Capital Public Relations Hall of Fame
Friday, October 13, 2017

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- John J. Seng, founder of DC-based communications agency Spectrum, was inducted into the National Capital Public Relations Hall of Fame on October 12, 2017 at the 49(th) Annual Thoth Awards.

A public relations professional since 1979, Seng had a vision of building a different agency model. He founded Spectrum in 1996 as an independent agency focused solely on health and science communications, affording the freedom to put clients first and empowering employees to do their best work. In 2004, Seng co-founded GLOBALHealthPR (GHPR), the largest independent health and science communications agency partnership worldwide. Today, GHPR has 16 partners, an international presence in 40 countries and has supported 44 of the top 50 pharma brands worldwide.

"For John, healthcare PR is a higher calling. For more than two decades, his fierce belief in the power of the independent agency model has inspired teams to change lives through the power of science and storytelling - and to always put clients' needs first. He epitomizes all that the PRSA-NCC's Hall of Fame represents," said Jonathan Wilson, Spectrum's CEO and president to both Spectrum and GHPR.

Since 1999, the National Capital Public Relations Hall of Fame has inducted public relations leaders in the Washington, DC area. All inductees must have a minimum of 30 years' experience in the public relations field, led and inspired others with their visionary leadership skills and positively impacted and contributed to the industry as well as to their local public relations communities.

"John has created a unique environment that fosters a passion for healthcare and science. His entrepreneurial spirit continues to inspire Spectrum employees daily," said Amanda Sellers, an Executive Vice President at Spectrum.

Seng's Hall of Fame induction follows Spectrum's 2016 recognition as The Holmes Report's "Healthcare Agency of the Year", a 2016 PRWeek "Best Places to Work" winner and a 2016 PR News "Top Places to Work" honoree. In addition, Seng received the PRSA Frank J. Weaver Lifetime Achievement Award in 2013 to honor his outstanding contributions to the public relations practice.
