Finn Partners enters into PROI Worldwide partnership

Finn Partners has become a PROI Worldwide partner agency, joining more than 65 leading PROI partner agencies whose combined 2013 net fee income of $525 million rated them the fifth largest communications conglomerate of independents in the world.

Finn’s 2013 acquisition of Widmeyer Communications, a long time PROI partner agency, gave the parent company a firsthand look at the client opportunities the international partnership could provide and conversely how Finn could offer international partners more and varied communications expertise in the US.

“Major independent agencies continue to become part of PROI Worldwide,” said Andreas Fischer Appelt, Global Chairman of PROI Worldwide, adding “Finn Partners will be an excellent fit as we continue to grow our global client base and in-depth expertise to assist them.”

According to Peter Finn, Founding Partner, Finn Partners, “Collaboration and partnership are integral parts of our business philosophy and have been the keys to our successful growth, so it was an easy strategic decision to take advantage of the opportunity to join PROI’s international partnership.”

With $18 million in revenue, the agency is expecting to start 2015 with about $65 million in fees. Launched in late 2011, Finn Partners specialises in the full spectrum of communications services, including digital and social media. Specialty areas include technology, consumer, travel/ lifestyle, education, corporate affairs/ CSR, arts/ culture and healthcare.

PROI Worldwide is the world’s largest partnership of integrated independent communications agencies founded in Europe in 1970. It is represented in more than 110 cities in 50+ countries, with 64 leading independent integrated communications partner companies. Founded 44 years ago, PROI Worldwide’s combined fee turnover exceeds $525 million.
