May 11, 2021
On May 11, 2021, FINN Partners’ CEO & Founder Peter Finn received the prestigious PRovoke Media SABRE Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement. In a heartfelt salute, Paul Holmes declared that “from the early days of the new firm, [it was apparent that] Finn was looking to create something different: the partnership structure, the emphasis on collaboration, the promise of a values-based approach.” During the ceremony, Peter was honored for his vast professional and philanthropic accomplishments, including building a $100 million agency in less than 10 years, being voted the Best PR Agency to Work for in North America by employees, and using the arts to revitalize a community in need in the Catskill Mountains. Read his acceptance speech below:
“Thank you, Paul, and PRovoke Media. I’d also like to thank my colleagues who joined me in launching FINN Partners almost 10 years ago, and everyone who has joined our agency since then.
These colleagues share my dream of creating a best place to work global agency with a heart and conscience that major clients around the world would be pleased to work with. Our team constantly amazes me as they work together to make a difference for our clients, for the firm, for our colleagues, and for the world around us.
I’d also like to thank my father David, who was a PR industry pioneer. For many years, he was my boss and my mentor, and before the launch of FINN Partners, he was my business partner. He was always a best friend.
So much of what I have accomplished at FINN Partners is a result of what I learned from him about the importance of kindness and justice and the potential for people to do amazing things together.
I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together at FINN Partners, and am looking forward to what we can accomplish in the future, and am grateful for this recognition and honor. Thank you.”
