ARIES CONSULTING, widely recognized in Hong Kong’s financial sector as a fast-rising investor relations and public relations firm, received the Asia Pacific Customer Relationship Excellence Awards 2011 (CRE Awards) Customer Satisfaction Quality System of the Year for Public Relations.

The Hong Kong-based consultancy received the award issued by the Asia Pacific Customer Service Consortium (APCSC) at a gala event yesterday at Hong Kong’s upscale Langham Place Hotel.

APCSC offers Asia’s sole, highly prestigious CRE Awards each year to a large field of highly deserving candidates.

Founded just four short years ago, Aries Consulting has rapidly become part of a well-developed Investor Relations and Public Relations regional network from Singapore to Hong Kong, Taipei, Beijing and Shenzhen.

Aries, a member company of PRC-based BlueFocus Communication Group and Singapore’s No.1 IR firm Financial PR, is aiming to become the top Asian brand in equity consulting and marketing communications.

This is the second year in which Aries Consulting has been named a winner in the prestigious CRE Awards, and is also the first PR-related winner of the awards.

Aries said the award reflects the Group’s continuous and dedicated efforts to provide customized Investor Relations and Public Relations services to its clients.

The goal of the CRE Awards is to promote service quality and CRE in major cities across the Asia Pacific, and to reward those organisations that ultimately provide maximum value and contribution to both customers and the organisation itself.

The CRE Awards winners are selected through a comprehensive balanced scorecard of self-assessment benchmarking, business case presentations, unannounced calls, Customer Service Quality Standard (CSQS) site assessment by the judging panel, online public voting, as well as a final round of judging by a panel of CRE experts.

After a six-month assessment process, Aries said it is very honored to be the first Investor Relations/Public Relations firm to emerge the ultimate winner.

Ms. Kathy Zhang, Founder and Group Managing Director of Financial PR Pte Ltd and Aries Consulting Ltd said: “Being recognised for customer relationship excellence under the Customer Satisfaction Quality System of the Year (Public Relations) category for the second year running is truly an honour for Aries Consulting.

“We take immense pride in ensuring that our clients receive excellent service, and believe our ability to craft customised solutions to meet their IR and PR needs has clearly distinguished us from our peers.

The Financial PR Group itself has also been rapidly bolstering its presence across the region.

“Having expanded our reach from Singapore, Hong Kong and Taipei to include Beijing since our previous win, I believe we are now better-positioned to provide greater value to our clients given the interconnectedness of the region’s equity markets. Nowadays, we have more than 100 listed clients across the four regions.
