Congratulations are in order for Max Puro! During DKC’s annual holiday party. Max was named winner of the inaugural Peter D. Seligman Award of Excellence! This award was created to honor Peter Seligman, one of the founding partners of DKC, who tragically died in an accident years ago. Peter is remembered today for his tenacious drive and lasting contribution to DKC. Managing Director Scott Miranda shares, “It is the highest honor given to any employee at DKC and we are thrilled to recognize Max for his commitment to excellence that has contributed greatly to the performance and culture of DKC.”

Max is currently a Senior Account Executive in the Sports division. He joined DKC in October of 2010 as an assistant and has steadily worked his way up. In addition to his vast knowledge of sports, Max challenged himself to expand his capabilities and has worked with several teams outside of the Sports division to gain significant experience in the technology, entertainment and social media spaces.  He goes above and beyond by consistently delivering a variety of feature stories for many of his clients. Max is someone his colleagues have come to admire for both his skill and attitude. Overall, he is deserving of such an honor due to his incredibly bright future in our business.

DKC would like to congratulate Max and all of this year’s candidates around the country. The nominees embody the qualities and spirit that drove Peter’s desire to achieve.  It is professionals like these DKC standouts that made DKC the #1 Public Relations firm in New York in 2015!
