Independent PR firm Ruder Finn sets shop in India

In a move to secure a larger role in the fast growing South Asian economy, Ruder Finn, one of the world’s largest independent public relations firms, has opened its first office in India. Radha Roy has been brought on board to head the India operations. As Country Head, she reports to Jean-Michel Dumont, Chairman, Ruder Finn Asia Pacific.

Ruder Finn has already bagged the retainer account for Automobili Lamborghini for this region. In addition, Ruder Finn India team has also successfully undertaken projects to help drive communication mandates for some key global names in the pharma and not-for-profit sector.

Jean-Michel Dumont remarked, “The Indian economy has benefited from robust domestic demand and a revival in investor and consumer opinion. Our clients realise the necessity to expand their communication capabilities in this era of exponential growth. With this new office, Ruder Finn will continue telling the vibrant stories of our clients across a range of national and regional media.”

Commenting on the India foray, Kathy Bloomgarden, CEO, Ruder Finn Inc, said, “On the heels of our record-level revenues and earnings for the 2010 fiscal year, combined with market demand, it was a logical next step for us to expand our presence to a new part of the world. A presence in India will benefit our increasing number of multinational clients throughout North America, Europe and Asia by leveraging the synergies between business units, assisting in securing new opportunities and providing regional support to their existing global customer base.”

Ruder Finn, Inc is one of the largest independent integrated communication firms in the world, with offices in the US and Europe, as well as in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Singapore and New Delhi in Asia. Ruder Finn’s global strategic focus is on four operational pillars which constitute the core of the firm’s growth – Health & Wellness, Corporate & Public Trust, Global Connectivity and Life+Style.
