Peter Finn told O’Dwyer’s that financial services communications and marketing offers “tremendous opportunities” for his independent firm in the US, Europe and Asia.

“Our global team offers deep expertise in reputation management, executive visibility, capital formation raises communications, and crisis PR, among other areas,” he said.
