MacLellan, Chairman and CEO of Environics Communications, was acknowledged for outstanding achievement and service in the public relations industry. Today, he was presented with a framed certificate in front of industry peers.

MacLellan is recognized by the Canadian Public Relations Society for the support he provides to his staff and to others in the profession. He encourages professionals to pursue their APR (Accredited in Public Relations) professional designation, and advocates for the public relations profession overall through his commitment to the mentorship of his junior staff.
