CHICAGO: Building materials manufacturer USG has selected FTI Consulting as its PR agency partner following a competitive review.
The agency confirmed its relationship with the Chicago-based company, but declined to offer further information. Representatives from USG did not respond to multiple inquiries for comment.
It is unclear whether USG worked with a PR agency immediately prior to bringing on FTI.
USG saw a 5% increase in revenue year-over-year to $972 million during the third quarter of 2014. The company will release its Q4 earnings on February 5.
Founded in 1902, USG has a number of subsidiaries including United States Gypsum Company, L&W Supply, CGC, USG Interiors, and USG Mexico.
During the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, USG introduced a new logo and tagline, "It’s Your World. Build It," through a sponsorship of Olympic and Paralympic athletes from Team USA and Team Canada.
