Global Top 250 PR Firms 2015

Rankings: Top 10 | Top 250 | Fast Movers | Holding Groups/Networks
Analysis: Growth | Gender | CEO View

NOTE: This is the 2015 ranking. For 2016, please visit here.

Global PR agency ranking: Revenue numbers for many agencies include subsidiaries—including research, advertising, and specialist PR firms—many of which operate under separate brands but nevertheless report into the listed PR agency. For full methodology please visit our methodology. For firms that submitted numbers in pounds sterling or euros, conversions were made using exchange rates as of 12/31/2014. In some cases, where last year’s submitted numbers were used for comparison purposes, growth numbers may be lower because of exchange rate fluctuations than they would have been in constant currency terms. Accordingly a new constant currency growth metric has been added. Aside from large PR networks above $100m in fee income, the Rankings are totally dependent on submitted fee income; many agencies, often well-known, choose not to submit their numbers.

For entries in this color, The Holmes Report has estimated revenue. In many cases, the parent companies of these firms have elected not to provide revenue numbers for individual firms in response to Sarbanes-Oxley financial regulations.
