JohnstonWells

Holmes Report

For more than 30 years, JohnstonWells has been serving the Rocky Mountain region with the kind of public relations counsel clients would one have had to hire a national public relations firm to provide. The competition in the Denver market may have gotten tougher over the years—today it’s a small market with a half-dozen good PR firms—but Gwin Johnston has not yet relinquished her position as the preeminent practitioner in town, providing a full-service PR offering, a focus on client-service, and a commitment to sound management that manifests itself in everything from the agency’s account planning process to its professional development programming.
The firm’s expertise spans several sectors, including consumer products, business-to-business marketing, and healthcare (all up last year); financial services (down slightly); and technology and telecommunications (still stagnant). In addition to a strong local client base, JohnstonWells has been able to attract clients from other markets, including Florida-based Armor Holdings; Kemin Foods of Iowa; and eMac, based in Chicago. New clients in 2002 included the Association of Operating Room Nurses, Hogan & Hartsen, Mile High Development, LMC Community Foundation, Devereux Cleo Wallace, Mile High United Way, and  McStain Neighborhoods. 
 Overall revenues in 2002 were down about 25 percent from the previous year’s  $2.5 million, but profitability improved because of restructuring and a significant reduction in expenses.
