acquisition, Ruder Finn has picked up the hi-tech pace with dollars 2

million in new business.



Highlighting the list of new clients is Women.com, a Web network that

features original content, community services and an online

newsstand.



Launched in 1994, the site brings in 4.8 million unique visitors per

month, according to Web tracking firm Media Metrix.



The San Mateo, CA-based site has an IPO in the works - along with a new

e-commerce initiative - and the account will be jointly handled by Ruder

Finn’s New York and San Francisco offices. Connors Communications had

previously held the account, but marketing VP Fran Maier said the

company wanted a larger firm with international capabilities.



The agency is busy looking for new staff to handle the influx of work,

and is currently hunting for senior-level hires in both New York and San

Francisco. As for the firm’s plans to purchase an East Coast hi-tech

boutique (PRWeek, April 19), president of Ruder Finn/Americas Amy Binder

said the search has been narrowed to Boston and she hopes to close a

deal by the end of the year.



The other new wins range from consumer to network infrastructure firms,

and include iCanBuy.com, which allows kids to shop online with parental

consent, and healthcare site IDX.com.
