NEW YORK – 6/26/2023 – Ruder Finn, one of the world’s largest independent global communications and creative agencies, founded in 1948 by David Finn and Bill Ruder, is celebrating its 75th anniversary year.
Year to date, the agency has added 100 new client wins globally, including significant players in healthcare, technology, commerce, leadership and workplace. This impressive roster of new wins includes The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), Balenciaga, TEVA, Masimo, Lamborghini, GSK, Nestle Health Science, the World Wildlife Fund, Vertex, and The Common Wealth Fund.
The landmark anniversary comes on the heels of a more than 100% growth spurt since the rise of the pandemic in March 2020. The firm ended 2022 on an upward trajectory with 43% global revenue growth and a 33% increase in staff. Ruder Finn also expanded its global strategic footprint within the past year with three growth acquisitions in enterprise technology, DE&I, and purpose-driven leadership.
“For me personally, this monumental milestone of our 75th year is a reminder to reflect on the values that have defined Ruder Finn from its inception: driving positive change through innovative disruption, creative edge, and a strong commitment to ethics,” said Kathy Bloomgarden, CEO of Ruder Finn. “We’re looking forward to supporting our clients who are working towards positive human and planet impact through transformational science and technology, community building, and open dialogue.
