PORTLAND, OR — Finn Partners is acquiring consumer boutique Lane PR to expand its US West Coast operations into the Pacific Northwest.

Lane is a $4m boutique with a 27-person team distributed mostly across its offices in Portland and New York. Among its clients are Travel Oregon, Travel Portland, as well as beverage companies, several banks and private equity firms. The firm’s founder Wendy Lane will become part of Finn Partners West and report into its managing partner Howard Solomon.

“I first met Wendy Lane Stevens about 18 months ago and was impressed with her team’s deep expertise in the financial services sector, which we needed to enhance to meet our current and future client needs,” said founding partner Peter Finn.

Last month, Finn Partners bought Washington DC creatives services firm Greenfield Belser. In 2015, Finn Partners acquired two Tennessee firms in January and added Horn Group later in the year.
