The O’Donnell Agency, ranked by revenue among Florida’s leading public relations firms, has opened its third office in Miami.

Online PR News – 15-December-2011 – – MIAMI, Fla. (December 13, 2011) – The O’Donnell Agency, ranked by revenue among Florida’s leading public relations firms, has opened an office at 1101 Brickell Avenue in Miami, Fla. This is the firm’s third office. It is headquartered in the prestigious CityPlace Tower in West Palm Beach, Fla. and has a satellite office at 275 Madison Ave. in New York City.

The move into Miami was to answer the demands of the firm’s growing client base south of Ft. Lauderdale, and to take advantage of the investment and development activity in Miami that is driving an economic boom. The agency has an international staff, four of which reside in the Greater Miami area, offering fluency in four languages making them well suited to work within the increasingly global business community that defines Miami.

“We’ve represented banks and law firms in Miami for many years, serviced from our West Palm Beach office,” said principal Carey O’Donnell, who founded the company in 1995. “When the number of our Dade County-based clients started to grow steadily, coupled with the fact that today’s Miami is alive with optimism, energy and new investment, the time became right for us to take this step. Our network of clients and friends in the city encouraged the expansion, and we responded.”

O’Donnell Agency is known for its roster of blue-chip clients, including the leading bioscience companies in the state; BioFlorida, the industry’s statewide trade organization; Gunster law firm; West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority; the iconic CityPlace development by Related Companies and Related Group; Broward Health Foundation in Ft. Lauderdale; Cross Country Home Services in Sunrise; Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches; Miami’s Samuel Scheck Hillel Community Day School; the Palm Beach County Film & Television Commission; and a number of prestigious cultural institutions, real estate development and construction companies.

O’Donnell was one of the first firms in Florida to recognize the irreversible shift in the communications model caused by the universal adoption of the web as the primary information resource and the explosion of social media use. This prompted the public relations company to add and leverage in-house expertise in web content development, social media programs, video production services, advertising, design and digital media in its many forms.

“That lucky bet saved us from getting hit hard after the 2008 economic crisis,” said vice-president Jennifer Sullivan, a shareholder who has been with the company for 12 years. Our diversification allowed us to fulfill the majority of the marketing needs for many of our clients, and retain that revenue.”

Ranked by revenue among the top 10 public relations firms in the state of Florida and among the top 115 in the nation, O’Donnell Agency has earned dozens of national and regional design and public relations awards, including the prestigious MAXI Award from the International Council of Shopping Centers, Communicator Awards of Excellence, Summit Creative Awards, Davey Awards and Hermes Platinum Awards.
