NEW ORLEANS – The Ehrhardt Group made O’Dwyer’s annual list of top public relations firms in the country and is included in PR Week’s Agency Business Report 2021, an annual review of the agency sector. Both rankings are based on reported earnings.
O’Dwyer’s is a New York City-based monthly magazine that has covered marketing communications, media and public relations for more than 50 years. Its rankings measure counseling and media contact services, not advertising or production expenses.
For the Ehrhardt Group’s president Marc Ehrhardt, being included on these national lists is a sign the company is doing something right.
“The way to win in the Gulf South is to have a firm that deeply understands how the people here make decisions and take action,” he said in a release. “What we are seeing is that people are looking in larger numbers toward local sources for information. Today, being local and knowing local is more important than ever.”
For 25 years, the Ehrhardt Group has advised Fortune 500 corporations, institutions and public entities on matters of issues management, media relations, reputation management, crisis communications, social media and public affairs. The company focuses on Louisiana, Mississippi, coastal Alabama and the Florida panhandle.
“Being ranked among the top PR firms in the U.S. distinguishes us as we continue to speak directly to the people most important to the businesses and organizations we represent daily,” said Ehrhardt. “How we develop and share our words and ideas so that we educate, captivate and motivate is essential to engaging with the public and building the trust we need to help businesses and organizations succeed.”
