Stanton Founder Recognized as a Global Indie Legend of Public Relations

thenetworkone, the world’s leading independent network of over 1,600 agencies in 119 countries, celebrates communication excellence through its annual Indie Awards. This year, a new category for Indie Legends recognized professionals who have demonstrated exceptional dedication, innovation, and influence across independent marketing, communications and advertising agencies. In 2024, Stanton Communications founder and CEO Peter Stanton was recognized with the Bronze Award for his communications expertise, accomplishments as the leader and founder of an independent firm, now in its 35th year, and contributions to the international community of independent PR firms.  

Over his career, Peter has led impactful campaigns that achieved significant business outcomes for clients. Among them, he was integral to media logistics and coverage coordination for four Papal visits to the United States, enabling an estimated 50,000 journalists from news organizations worldwide to cover the events.  

Peter has been a champion for independent PR firms since he founded Stanton Communications in 1989. Ever forward-thinking, he was instrumental in a merger of two independent networks, resulting in the creation of the fast-growing PR World Alliance consortium. More recently, he was ahead of industry shifts in forging two international brands in collaboration with like-minded independent communication experts in Europe and Latin America to establish Joe Communications and Melius Communication respectively.  

Congratulations, Peter! With this well-deserved recognition, our team remains inspired by your leadership and dedicated to serving our clients with excellence by delivering programs that inform, influence, and inspire.
