- An example of Finn Partners’ success with Air France-KLM was their work on the announcement of Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud’s dishes being created for Air France. The agency conducted a press trip, secured interviews and managed all communications before, during and after the announcement of the partnership. Finn Partners’ work garnered nearly half a billion earned media impressions, which provided more than $19 million in ad value. Top placements included The New York Times (print and online), AFAR, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Food & Wine, Forbes and many more. Even after one year, this angle remains strong and the team continues to promote it landing top-tier coverage.
