A Dynamic Industry In A Turbulent Economy

Last month the Council of Public Relations Firms released the first phase of the industry's revenue documentation, the listing of the largest 25 firms. This month the Council
will complete its listing and analysis of 316 firms. The total revenues of that first group of leading firms grew organically by 24 percent and by 31 percent when acquisitions
are factored in. These 2000 results culminate a decade of 250 percent growth, capped by a doubling of the industry over the past three years.
