Top 150 PR Consultancies report shows slight growth for agencies

PR agencies weathered the economic storm of 2009 and even managed slight growth on average, figures published by PRWeek today reveal.

PRWeek's Top 150 PR Consultancies 2010 report shows that agencies grew, on average, by 0.75 per cent during 2009.

Experts said this was impressive considering the economic climate. 'Compared with the rest of the marketing services industry this can be considered a good result, because flat really does seem to be the new growth,' said Esther Carder, partner at accountants Kingston Smith W1.

Once again, the Bell Pottinger group came out on top, with fee income of nearly £60m.
