The communications agency Fink & Fuchs generated fee revenues of EUR 6.73 million in fiscal year 2018 (previous year: EUR 6.41 million). With good profitability, this equates to growth of five percent. The firm achieved the highest fee turnover in the company’s history on the occasion of its 30th anniversary. This growth is primarily the result of investments in the Digital, Moving Image and Content Creation sectors. New clients include, for example, HTC, IdeenExpo and Cohesity, as well as many public sector projects. Existing mandates in the consulting field of employer communication were expanded and new clients acquired.
By handing over the Chairmanship of the Management Board from founder Stephan Fink to Alexandra Groß at the end of 2018, Fink & Fuchs has continued the strategic change process initiated in 2011 and the intended generation change. The management change marks the next step in the strategic development towards a 360° communications agency. The number of employees remained steady at 80 at the locations in Wiesbaden, Munich and Berlin.
Seven new trainees were hired in the summer of 2018. Fink & Fuchs can now look back on 25 years of experience in training young professionals in the communication industry. The trainee program at Fink & Fuchs carries the seal of quality “Certified Trainee Program” of the German Academy for Public Relations (DAPR) since October 2018.
Cooperation with scientific institutions has been expanded at several levels over the past year: As a “Digital Communication Partner,” Fink & Fuchs supports the European Communication Monitor (ECM), the world’s largest transnational study on strategic communication issues.
The “HRM Readiness Check Digitalization” was developed in cooperation with the Institute for Technology and Work e.V. (ITA). The Readiness Check helps companies develop contemporary HR strategies for an increasingly digitalized, virtualized and collaborative work environment.
In addition, the topic of Influencer Communication in the B2B environment was comprehensively analyzed in cooperation with the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences.
“Just in time for our 30th anniversary, we look back on the most successful year in the history of the agency,” said Chairwoman Alexandra Groß. “The result shows that we are developing well as an agency for integrated communication. By investing in additional journalistic, digital and creative expertise, we were able to implement a variety of exciting and new communication tasks for and with our clients.”
