WHIPPANY, N.J., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer's Raymond F. Kerins, Jr., has won PRWeek's 2017 "Outstanding In-House Professional Award," the communications industry's highest honor for personal achievement.

Kerins, who has served as senior vice president and head of communications, government relations and policy for Bayer in the United States since 2013, was honored by PRWeek for his influence, effectiveness and impact. Kerins serves as chairman of the company's political action committee, BAYPAC, and is executive sponsor for two Bayer employee resource groups: Blend, the global resource for Bayer's LGBT employees and supporters, and Bayer Resources for Armed Forces Veteran Employees (BRAVE). Under his leadership, both groups have grown in size and community outreach activities.

In addition, PRWeek cited Kerins' leadership by appearing on CNBC in opposition to the so-called anti-LGBT law in North Carolina, which would have sanctioned discrimination against LGBT people and prohibited transgender people from using bathrooms of their choice. Kerins stood out on the issue by advocating for dialogue, equality and tolerance. For several years, Kerins has served on the CDC corporate roundtable on global health threats, which brings together the public health organization with the private sector to build programs that make the world healthy and safe. Thanks to Kerins' longstanding relationship with the CDC, Bayer led corporate efforts against the Zika virus.

"Ray is an excellent leader who has demonstrated a strategic and innovative approach to comms," according to one PRWeek judge.

PRWeek, which hosted the annual awards dinner last week in New York City, honors and celebrates the best of the corporate, agency, nonprofit and education teams and the work that they do. The outstanding in-house professional award honors the personal achievement within the client side of the PR industry, which is covered by this year's awards, along with any additional career achievements to date.

"I am grateful to receive this award on behalf of the outstanding Bayer team in the United States. Nobody ever accomplished anything in this world alone," Kerins said. "PRWeek is the gold standard of the industry, and to be recognized by your peers in this extradinary industry is truly special and humbling. I thank PRWeek for this honor."

A graduate of Iona College, where he earned bachelor's and master's degrees, Kerins has long been recognized for outstanding work during his communications career. Just last fall, he was named to PRWeek's Health Influencer 50 List. Kerins lives in Katonah, N.Y., with his wife and three children.
