We mark a big milestone this week: our thirtieth anniversary as an independent Canadian public relations firm. To celebrate the occasion, the Argyle team enjoyed a two-day retreat in New York City and sent its clients a CD of top hits from 1979, the year the company was founded.
“For Argyle Communications, this celebration is the perfect cap to a successful year — with continued business growth and 11 major awards from our national and international industry peers,” said Daniel Tisch, president of Argyle Communications. “For the Argyle team, it’s particularly rewarding to share these successes with both our clients and our colleagues.”
Founded by journalist Ray Argyle on November 30, 1979 and transitioned to new ownership in 2002, the firm has grown to become one of Canada’s top mid-sized PR firms.
Argyle built its early success in industries such as food and beverage, technology, periodical publishing and health care. In the 1990s, the firm added expertise in financial services, telecommunications and business services. Today, Argyle has practice teams in consumer marketing, corporate communications, government and public affairs and health and wellness. The firm enjoys the confidence of many of the world’s biggest brands.
Billboard’s top hits from 1979 include: My Sharona (The Knack); I Will Survive (Gloria Gaynor); Escape (The Pina Colada Song) (Rupert Holmes); Ring My Bell (Anita Ward); Sad Eyes (Robert John); Heart of Glass (Blondie); YMCA (Village People); Fire (Pointer Sisters); The Devil Went Down to Georgia (the Charlie Daniels Band); Just When I Needed You Most (Randy Vanwarmer).
