Much of Ruder Finn's focus in the period has been on China. It bought Thunder Communications, an event management, brand and marketing consultancy in Shanghai. It hired Elan Shou as MD and SV-P, China; Leon Liu as general manager in Beijing; and Poh Leng Yu as general manager in Singapore. The agency claims this has resulted in it attaining a top three spot in China in terms of revenue.

This has led to nine per cent growth in revenue and a 12 per cent increase in headcount. It won US business from PepsiCo and Warner Brothers, Asia business from Bosch and Lamborghini, UK business from Experian and international work from Citigroup and Novartis.
