Plimsoll's awards highlight well run UK comms shops

DPA Corporate Communications, Berkeley PR International and Yellow Door Creative Marketing are among 50 UK PR agencies to be acclaimed for their profitability in this year's Envy Awards by marketing services analyst Plimsoll Publishing.

The consultancies appear on a 170-strong list of PR agencies graded on a combination of performance, efficiency and exceptional growth.

Public affairs consultancy Chelgate is named as one of the 43 'fastest growers', with an average growth rate of 15.7 per cent - nearly seven per cent above the industry average.

Meanwhile, research by Marketing Services Financial Intelligence shows the UK's listed PR Groups are close to becoming members of the 90 per cent club - firms that have lost 90 per cent of their market value.

Of the four groups, OneMonday and Incepta have been hit harder than rivals Chime Communications and Huntsworth Group, having lost 89 per cent of their market value since January 2001.
