One of the nation¹s top public relations trade media, The Holmes Report, named Minnesota-based Kohnstamm Communications as its 2010 "Boutique Agency of the Year." Calling Kohnstamm a "permanent fixture" on its list of Best Agencies to Work For, Holmes said that the 13-person agency "provides conclusive proof that a boutique firm in a smaller market can consistently generate prominent national media coverage."
The Holmes Report is the only PR trade source that independently surveys clients for its annual "PR Agency Report Card," and hosts one of the most coveted awards in the PR profession, in New York City each May, called "The Sabre Awards." Holmes pointed to Kohnstamm¹s national client base, with particular strength in natural products and corporate social responsibility, that drove the St. Paul-based firm to reach 17 percent growth last year, while the national PR agency average dropped 12 percent.
O¹Dwyers Public Relations News ranked Kohnstamm Communications 94thst in its March 2010 annual ranking of independent public relations agencies. For more information, go to www.kohnstamm.com
