Agency Statement: Ruder Finn is one of the largest independent global communications agencies with 12 offices across North America, Europe and Asia and around 600 employees. As one of the only agencies co-headquartered in New York and China, Ruder Finn is uniquely positioned to provide clients with global perspective, insights and resources, yet offer localized knowledge of the markets that mean the most to our clients. We concentrate on activating transformational moments: large-scale high-impact creative campaigns for world-class companies who are transforming the way they do business, go to market and communicate with the people that matter most.

Our independence, deep bench of talent, and entrepreneurial spirit drives us to bring a “creative edge”, which we see as the freedom of imagination to see things in a new way and the sharpness of thinking to our global clients.

Ruder Finn provides hands-on experience and expertise of a local boutique agency across the agency’s four pillars: Health & Wellness, Corporate Reputation & Transformation, Technology & Innovation, and Consumer Connections with expertise in corporate reputation and media counsel, healthcare communications, C-suite thought leadership, business transformation, financial communications, crisis and issues management, employee engagement, technology communications, community building, experiential marketing and cause-related work. Supporting all of our offerings is a consistent focus on digital content and strategy through our award-winning full-service digital practice, RFI Studios, with digital strategists and content creators in New York, San Francisco and China.

We pride ourselves in our entrepreneurial culture, where every employee is empowered and encouraged to contribute at the highest level. Senior leaders at Ruder Finn, many of whom have been with the agency for over a decade, are deeply involved in all accounts. The agency has also won awards for being a best place to work in PR.
