The 78-strong team of the communications agency Fink & Fuchs generated fee revenue of EUR 6.42 million (previous year: EUR 5.9 million) in fiscal year 2016. Numerous new mandates and additional projects with existing clients led to growth of 8.8 percent. Among the new clients are F5, Facebook Germany, Proalpha as well as the Federal Administration with other projects coming from various federal ministries and authorities. The volume of orders increased significantly, particularly in the growth areas of digital communication, moving pictures and employer communication.
The change in its name from Fink & Fuchs Public Relations AG to Fink & Fuchs AG was one of the milestones in the year. What appears to be only a marginal change is part of its development into a full-service communications agency. Fink & Fuchs now offers integrated solutions with an agile organization, new employees and its extended network of partners for corporate communications, marketing or employer communication, among other disciplines.
In line with this growth, the number of employees increased by over 10 percent compared to the previous year to 78. Not only the 18th trainee year, but also a growing number of new employees from a wide range of media and communications disciplines have led to the expansion of its competencies and innovations and also to the further expansion of its range of services.
A special highlight at the end of the year was Fink & Fuchs’s winning the PR-Report Award “PR Agency of the Year.” In 2016, the Wiesbaden-based firm received the German PR Award for the project “1. Nacht der Ausbildung Hanau” (1st Night of Training Hanau) and the Golden Lilly from the city of Wiesbaden for its special social commitment. Fink & Fuchs was among the top 5 tech agencies in the EMEA region for the Saber Award and was among the top 5 in the “Top Agency Employers in Continental Europe” study (Holmes Report) for the third time in a row. The Wiesbaden-based agency ranked second in Kununu’s first-ever agency employer ranking.
“Our sustainable process of change and development has contributed to significant growth and quality gains over the last two years. The fact that this development of the agency and the employer brand Fink & Fuchs is perceived by the market and also reflected in awards and rankings is particularly pleasing to us,” says Alexandra Groß, a Board member of Fink & Fuchs.
“Our successes in future business areas, such as digital or employer communications, confirm our potential for innovation. On the basis of our technology and digital expertise, as well as a strong partner network, we are well-positioned for future tasks in the digital transformation of marketing and corporate communications. We are also optimistic that we will be able to continue our growth in 2017,” says Michael Grupe, a fellow Board member of Fink & Fuchs.
