Gwin Johnston, Silver Anvil judgeJohnstonWells CEO, Gwin Johnston, was a senior judge for the Public Relations Society of America Silver Anvils Awards, one of the most prestigious awards in the public relation profession, which was held in New York City on Friday, March 23.

“I still learn a lot by being a judge,” said Gwin Johnston. “In the 31 years I have judged the Silver Anvils, winners are usually organizations that have hired public relations firms. That doesn’t mean public relations firms are smarter than the people they serve. They just know how to put awards together.” As a senior judge, Johnston was part of a team that included Caryn Carmer, senior vice president and consumer practice director at MSL New York, Mary Buhay, vice president of marketing and business development at Gibbs & Soell, New York and Stacy Smith of Birmingham, Alabama.
