PR Firms - Our Annual Rankings of Firms & Agencies

Our May issue contains our annual rankings of PR firms. The firms included in our rankings have met stringent standards. We require W-3 forms to validate revenue and require employee numbers, lists of accounts, and other fee-related information.

We rank public relations firms along a wide range of criteria. Since PR firms differ greatly from one another, we rank them by specialty—from healthcare PR to travel and tech public relations. To account for geographical differences, we also rank PR firms by location—from New York PR firms to agencies in Washington, DC and Chicago.

Feintuch Communications, headquartered in New York, is an award-winning, boutique b-to-b tech PR firm focused on business results. We partner with our public and privately held clients to help implement a world class PR infrastructure and then work with them to achieve their primary business objectives—building their brand, increasing their thought leadership, generating leads or helping position themselves for a capital event (fundraising round, M&A, IPO, etc.).

This is especially critical for small and microcap public companies who may need help in crafting compelling messages and which are seeking coverage through a range of channels from traditional and social media to other digital platforms. This “PR first” approach can help these smaller public companies to establish a stronger brand identity and reputation which is critical for attracting new investors and customers.

Though we’re experienced in most corporate and b-to-b markets, we are particularly strong in a few major verticals including ad and marketing tech, energy and clean tech, financial services and fintech, security and e-commerce, manufacturing tech, telecom/wireless/ioT and SaaS, audio-visual, retail tech, real estate and proptech and consumer electronics. We also have extra affinity for helping start-ups with their critical marketing needs; and international companies seeking to enter the U.S. market.

When Peter Finn founded FINN Partners a decade ago, his vision was to build a world-class, best-place-to-work agency with a heart and conscience, that any major client around the world would be proud to have as a partner. 10 years later, in the wake of a global pandemic, racial strife and business tumult, Peter’s original vision has not only been realized; it has accelerated. Thanks to the agency’s values-driven culture, category-leading expertise, and independent model, FINN has achieved record growth and global powerhouse status—with revenues up 49% and fees hitting $162.2M in 2021, and expectations to exceed $200MM in fees this year.

FINN’s values-centric culture has been rocket fuel for the agency’s growth: serving as a magnet for clients in need of trusted counsel, employees in search of upward career mobility and meaning, and a haven for entrepreneurs eager to tap into the agency’s financial stability and global scale.

High growth practice areas included technology, health, consumer, travel, purpose/CSR, financial services, and integrated marketing, and the firm expanded significantly in key regions such as the Southeast, Midwest, West and Hawaii.

With more than 1,200 professionals in the Americas, Europe and Asia, the agency acts as ONE FINN, united by a shared vision, unwavering values, and a relentless commitment to driving positive change.

Defining communications broadly to include thought leadership, digital marketing, and paid content as well as traditional PR, The Hoffman Agency knows how to differentiate brands and drive sales. With a heritage in the technology sector, the firm’s work today cuts across a range of industries.

The Hoffman Agency’s global leadership team descended on Silicon Valley with the objective of accentuating their superpower, collaboration.The Hoffman Agency’s global leadership team descended on Silicon Valley with the objective of accentuating their superpower, collaboration.

While campaigns vary by client and industry, all share one theme: the creation of content that reflects the tenets of storytelling. This means developing narratives that prompt journalists to write and target audiences to read—a far cry from the “corporate speak” that satisfies internal stakeholders. The firm applies this same mentality to its talent acquisition and marketing services.

For clients with global needs, the company operates in Asia Pacific, Europe and the United States. Unlike traditional agencies handicapped by their silo structure, The Hoffman Agency embraces a collaborative approach to implementing multi-country campaigns (don’t worship individual office P/L). This leverage of content and thinking across geographies ultimately generates better results.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Trevelino/Keller continues to place emphasis on talent retention in today’s empowered workforce environment. It could not be more humbled by its ability to maintain the industry’s number one talent retention, having lost two people to agencies in 20 years. The firm’s management team [average tenure of 16 years] has successfully incubated new talent, supported by its TKU professional development platform and innovative reward offerings like its Wild Blue Yonder [WBY], a travel curated program that sends staff members into the Wild Blue Yonder on vacation getaways around the world where they can play, then choose to extend their stay and take advantage of its flex workplace. Its T/K Niners program is an off-shoot that rewards staff on their ninth anniversary with a personal getaway.

On the business development side, its pioneering reputation marketing approach powered by public relations, growth marketing and creative services, resonates with an increasing number of emerging and middle market companies wanting a single source solution.  And more companies are responding favorably to the firm’s “NoGo” policy of No Long-term Contracts, No Minimums and No Mark-ups.

Ranked as the #2 Atlanta-based firm, its home on Atlanta’s burgeoning urban westside, speaks to its progressive culture that sets a tone unique to the public relations marketplace. Dominating in technology while successfully growing healthcare, financial services, government, lifestyle and franchising, the firm’s client base cuts across the country and increasingly more often, around the world.

Initiatives like T/K SmallBiz——designed to serve more traditional small businesses and its public education initative Voice4Change——are examples of its efforts to support and serve the under resourced. Additionally, the firm continues to operate Winepreneurs, its entrepreneur program that brings entrepreneurs, investors and influencers together to connect and thrive.
