PRWeek is a publication that repeatedly sets the standard for reporting about the public relations and digital media. Reading the publication or skimming its website is a great way to become familiar with the big names in the media world. PRWeek is also a fantastic venue to learn about the up-and-coming stars in the media world.
Darius Fisher has recently been named to PRWeek’s Innovation 50 list. It is hard to be innovative in the world of PR and media, but Fisher has found a way to do so. As president and co-founder of Status Labs, he brings something both new and vital to the industry. He is leading the way with developing means of revamping a reputation that has been marred by bad press, publicity, reviews, or other forms of crises.
The Innovation 50 list is a compilation of names to watch for in the future of digital marketing. Getting on the list is not easy. Those honored with placement on the list really have to do something special to get a mention. Darius Fisher’s work at Status Labs definitely allowed him to gain prominence in the industry. In addition to handling more than a few high-profile clients, Fisher came up with the brilliant idea to offer free crisis counseling to those who suffered in the aftermath of the Ashley Madison hacking.
Fisher’s tireless work has allowed Status Labs to grow very quickly in a short period of time. The company not only has offices in its headquarter location of Austin, TX, but also in New York City and San Paulo, Brazil. Status Labs is picking up a lot of clients all around the world. What would be a better indication of success? Perhaps the fact that the Austin office has moved to the prestigious business district and joined the local Chamber of Commerce. These would all be signs of growth and achievement.
Darius Fisher has personally been singled out for his knowledge and expertise. He has spoken publicly at industry conventions and is doing a lot to make the public aware of the importance of effectively and quickly dealing with a reputation crisis. In today’s internet and social media driven world, these steps are a must.
