Corporate Agency of the Year: Prosek Partners
It was a busy year for Prosek Partners, which changed its name (from CJP Communications), opened a wholly-owned London office, made an impression in the hypercompetitive mergers and acquisition arena (ranked 11th in the US by volume of deals and by value of deals, according to mergermarket) and grew by 20 percent to end the year with fees of $15 million and a place among the top 25 independent in the US. The firm, which is best known for its work in the financial and professional services arena, works for big corporate names such as GE Capital, RBS, Lloyd’s, Edward Jones, OppenheimerFunds, Franklin Templeton and ING and picked up new assignments from RBC and Genworth as well as working on a high-profile crisis assignment for Dow Jones.—PH
