Kudos to two West Michigan agencies making the 2007 Rankings in PR Week.
The list ranks firms by annual revenues, not counting firms that are part of the big five "holding companies"--Interpublic, Omnicom, WPP, Havas, Publicis.
After three Michigan firms from the Detroit area, Lambert, Edwards & Associates is the first Michigan PR firm on the list, coming in at #109. Seyferth Spaulding Tennyson joins the list at 129.
I know I'm a cheerleader, but never consider "GRPR" to be second rate to anywhere else. These firms put Grand Rapids on the PR list along with New York, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago and other big cities. Plus, we can never discount the top notch practitioners in West Michigan who work for boutique shops and in-house in the government, nonprofit, and corporate sectors.
I'm tellin' ya: when it comes to PR, GR rocks!
