When Peter Finn founded FINN Partners 10 years 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. At that time, it was an idea, an experiment to see if the company, guided by a set of core values, could grow into a leading marketing communications agency.
10 years later, in the wake of a global pandemic, racial strife, cultural division 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 powered by hands-on service and worldwide scale, FINN has achieved record growth and global powerhouse status â€” with revenues up 49% ending 2021 with fees of $162.2MM.
Our agency's purpose-built model is needed now more than ever, with industries and societies experiencing massive upheaval. 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 financial stability and global scale of a top independent agency with values they admire, while retaining their sense of autonomy.
Our core values are infused throughout our culture and guide everything we do:
•Work Hard, Play Nice
•Commit to DEI
•Create a Best Place to Work
•Make a Difference in the World
With more than 1,000 professionals in the Americas, Europe and Asia, we are ONE FINN, united by a shared vision, unwavering values, and a relentless commitment to driving positive change, for our people, our clients, and our world.
