History

Peter Finn

DECEMBER 2011. FINN PARTNERS WAS BORN. After 11 years serving as co-CEO of an historic agency that carried my father’s name — and mine — and after 30-plus years of working at the firm, I wanted to build something different, bold, meaningful and amazing for clients, our colleagues and the communities in which we operate. "Amazing" was, and is, for me an important word. I imagined we could be "amazing" every day by creating a place where talented people could gather — virtually or in person — and do big things for clients, as well as make a difference in the communities important to us.

WE LAUNCHED WITH A GROUP WHO SHARED A VISION. Finn Partners would operate under a "new" agency model, driven by a collaborative spirit, supported by a 70-plus-year legacy, and attuned to the energy and speed of today’s high-tech world.

WE’VE MADE OUR MARK QUICKLY. Finn Partners has been named “Best New Agency,” “Best PR Agency to Work for in North America,” and “Best Mid-Sized Agency of the Year” multiple times.

At our founding, we had $24 million in fees. Today, we have grown to more than $100 million in fees, more than 800 colleagues, and 19 offices across three continents. We’re now one of the world’s largest agencies.

Our Founding Managing Partners — highly respected colleagues who took the leap with me from our former agency — have been joined by the principals from other great agencies that have become part of Finn Partners. So many other talented individuals are with us now, too, intrigued by the idea of doing amazing things in an amazing workplace community.

We share the genes of a respected agency that pioneered today’s integrated communications. But we are not them. We are unique. We are ourselves. We are focused on the future — and building that future each amazing day.
