It’s been a whirlwind summer at Bellmont Partners, topped off by attending our first Best Places to Work award ceremony on Thursday, hosted by Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal at the brand-new U.S. Bank Stadium. We were honored to be included on the final list – the first year we met the minimum number of employees to partake in the survey – and thrilled to debut at number seven out of 25 companies in the Extra Small Companies category. And from our seats on the field, taking in the impressive view of the stadium and the caliber of our fellow honorees, we already began brainstorming ways to do even better next year.
As if the Best Places to Work honor wasn’t enough, we’ve also had a streak of well-earned good news lately. Earlier this month, we appeared on MSPBJ’s list of top 25 PR agencies in the Twin Cities, moving up three spots to number 11. A few weeks ago, our friend and local blogger Arik Hanson named Brian and Jen Bellmont a “PR Power Couple.” We were also honored earlier this summer to receive another workplace culture award, Minnesota Business magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For. All this makes celebrating our 20th anniversary all the more meaningful.
For every very public accolade we’ve received lately, there are dozens of behind-the-scenes – but equally award-worthy – moments from our team: going the extra mile for clients and each other, early mornings and late nights at events, and building a culture of innovation and collaboration every step of the way.
