Anjna Raheja said she was delighted to be named Media Professional of the Year 2016.
The AMA’s recognise excellence in the media with categories in journalism, online, radio, television and marketing. The awards are sponsored by the University of Salford and took place the Hilton Manchester Deansgate.
In an extremely strong category she was joined by some of the leading Media professionals in the UK.
The award was presented to Anjna by actress and model Afshan Azad.
Anjna said, “It is really nice to be honoured both as an agency which we have been in the past few years and also as someone within the agency who has made a difference.
“It is something we set out to do when I first launched the agency twenty-odd years ago.
“I feel like the grandmother of PR! It is wonderful from where I started when nobody really knew about PR to now where we have a room full of people who are celebrating media and marketing. And all the immense talent of journalism – it is fantastic.
“Well worth the journey, the tears, the heartbreak and the laughter.”
As founder and managing director of Media Moguls Anjna has seen the firm attract clients from film, media, entertainment, lifestyle, food and beverage brands.
