Ruder Finn Group has launched a new firm, Finn Partners, that will operate as a separate company within that umbrella group later this year. Peter Finn, co-CEO of Ruder Finn, will continue in that role while also serving as founder and managing partner of the new firm. He will give up that position when Finn Partners separates.
Finn Partners will merge nine Ruder Finn practices in order to provide a full range of services to clients in the arts, technology, consumer, travel/economic development, global issues, and public and corporate affairs areas. The firm will have 160 employees and is projected to generate$25 million in fees the first year. Ruder Finn will keep its focus on the healthcare space with Kathy Bloomgarden retaining her CEO position.
