Darius Fisher has been named the Business Development Individual of the Year by PR World Awards. Fisher is the current co-founder and CEO of Status Labs, a rising online public relations firm. The Business Development award is a prestigious honor for those in the public relations sector, as it honors only the highest accomplishments in the communication realm.
Darius has quickly risen to the top tier of public relations professionals with his astounding leadership role at Status Labs. In the past four years, he has single-handedly propelled the success of the company with an over 900 percent increase in revenue. Such gains are rarely heard of, but Darius attributes much of the company’s success to his employee incentive program.
Since launching his revised employee incentive program, which offers employees generous awards for their hard work, Status Labs has seen a decrease in turnover and increase in revenue. While Fisher’s company prides itself on helping others to promote a positive public image, Darius has been a powerful force behind Status’s own likability.
To his peers and colleagues, Fisher is seen as an innovator in a field that is often difficult to navigate. Long known as reputation managers, public relations professionals have a much more complicated job now that the world spreads the majority of its information instantaneously. Although the increased challenge does not seem to face Fisher’s team at Status Labs, as they have grown to handle the accounts of Fortune 500 companies and large personalities from around the world.
Fisher’s expertise allows him to control how a person’s story is told. While many people have worked to establish their reputation, most are not versed in damage control when something goes wrong. Fisher’s magic keeps people afloat. He is able to do the unthinkable, from doctoring a Google search to better reflect a person, to building unbreakable online fortresses for clients to rely on. Regardless of Fisher’s ability to fix what seems like literally anything. Fisher says that Status Labs is willing to reject seedy clients on ethical grounds.
Fisher and Status Labs are a tour-de-force worth keeping an eye on!
