World PR Report 2015: Omnicom Overtakes WPP

Omnicom's PR operations overtook WPP in 2014 for the first time, reporting $1.4bn in PR revenue — slightly ahead of the UK group's $1.39bn.

That performance owed much to currency volatility with WPP's operations impacted by the conversion of its international business into sterling.

The holding group table also features DJE Holdings for the first time, reflecting the rise of the world's largest PR firm Edelman, and sister agency Zeno.
