Darius Fisher, president of Status Labs online public relations firm, was a recipient of the prestigious PR World Awards “Business Development Individual of the Year” award. The award recognizes achievements in marketing, public relations and corporate communications.
Fisher earned the award because, in 3 years, Status Labs accomplished a growth in revenue of 939%. The key to this achievement was building a worldwide client base with new digital services and great customer relations. Darius Fisher also motivates his employees to perform by team building and incentives.
The Status Labs president was honored in San Francisco at the annual SVUS (Silicon Valley United States) Red Carpet Awards Ceremony Dinner. “Business development is imperative for any company with long-term growth goals,” Fisher said, “so we take brand partnerships and relationship-building seriously.”
Fisher graduated cum laude from Vanderbilt with a bachelor’s degree in economics. After college, he worked as a litigation support executive and a political consultant, and then became a senior copywriter for Agora Publishing. In 2013, Fisher co-founded Status Labs with a goal of helping clients increase sales through effective online marketing and public relations. Now, with offices in Austin, TX, New York and Sao Paolo, Status Labs serves over 1500 clients in 35 countries, and it’s been featured in the New York Times, New York Post and US News & World Report. In March of 2016, the 3-year-old company hit its first million-dollar month, putting it on target to make 2016 a 7-million-dollar year.
As well as a successful entrepreneur, Fisher is also a contributor to Forbes and Huffington Post. He’s a great believer in increasing employee satisfaction. In Forbes, he wrote that companies should offer employees rewards, such as tickets or Apple watches, for reaching goals. “Who isn’t motivated by the prospect of a treat?” he asked. He also wrote that employees should be acknowledged for good work, and he always congratulates them with a company-wide email.
Fisher wrote in Forbes that “people like to have their hard work recognized.” No doubt, then, he appreciates being acknowledged as “Business Development Individual of the Year.”
