FINN Partners has acquired Claudine Colin Communication, a 25-member arts and culture shop based in Paris.

Founded in 1990, CCC has partnered with FINN’s Polskin Arts unit on projects in the fields of art and culture over the years.

Philippa Polskin said CCC “is recognized everywhere as the unchallenged leader in arts PR in France, as well as a major force in cultural communications throughout Europe.”

Claudine Colin said Polskin shares her firm’s values and high standards. “It is a natural next step for us to join forces and further extend the scope of the select international projects on which we already collaborate,” she said.

CCC represents Musée National Picasso-Paris, Musée du quai Branly-Jacques Chirac, Pinault Collection, Palais de Tokyo, Musée du Louvre-Lens, Fondation Pernod Ricard, Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris and Cultural Olympiad for Paris 2024.

Besides boosting FINN Partners’ arts segment, Peter Finn is happy to expand his firm’s presence in Paris. Its 15-member team handles sustainability, technology, consumer and healthcare clients.

FINN Partners holds the No. 5 spot in O’Dwyer’s rankings with $195.4M in 2023 fee income.
