Dolphin Entertainment’s PR and Marketing Subsidiaries, 42West, The Door and Shore Fire Media all Named to the Observer’s Annual List of 50 Most Powerful Firms

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / December 20, 2019 / All three marketing and public relations subsidiaries of Dolphin Entertainment (NASDAQ:DLPN), 42West, The Door, and Shore Fire Media, have earned spots on The Observer’s prestigious PR Power 50, a widely-respected ranking of the 50 most influential public relations firms in the nation.

“Such prestigious third-party validation of the market-leading position of each of our subsidiaries serves as affirmation of our core strategy, that we are creating an entertainment marketing ‘Super Group,’ the only one of its kind in our industry,” said Bill O’Dowd, CEO of Dolphin Entertainment. “Our honorees represent the best in the business but, more importantly, they are agencies that have become critical partners for their clients during highly transformative times. Individually, each agency offers best-in-class service, and collectively, we enjoy unrivaled relationships and unique opportunities across the full breadth of entertainment and pop culture, for the benefit of individual and corporate clients alike.”

42West (#4), led by Co-CEO’s Leslee Dart, Amanda Lundberg and Allan Mayer, earned the highest-ranking of any entertainment firm, and was cited by the Observer for having “a banner year, representing 60+ movies; they included the year’s two most inescapable films, Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Fred Rogers biopic A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”

The Door (#18), led by Co-Founder/President Lois Najarian O’Neill and Co-Founder/CEO Charlie Dougiello, has now been ranked in the Top 20 firms for three consecutive years and was credited with signing many high-profile clients across its hospitality, travel and consumer products divisions, including Venmo and the Empire State Building as well as projects with HBO and Rachael Ray X Uber Eats. The Observer praised The Door’s recent work saying “this endlessly creative firm keeps expanding the boundaries of PR.”

Shore Fire Media (#49), led by CEO Marilyn Laverty, burst onto the rankings “with a long list of 2019 Grammy wins and a roster of platinum-plated clients like Bruce Springsteen, Carole King and Cyndi Lauper, Shore Fire topped the charts with hot podcasts (Freakonomics, Dolly Parton’s America), acclaimed documentaries (Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice and Echo in the Canyon) and huge festivals like the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest (with, yes, Cardi B and Bruno Mars).”
