Only nine PR firms in Florida made this prestigious list. Over 5,000 nominations for the list were received for and 200 firms were selected.
Sachs Media Group, founded by CEO Ron Sachs in 1996, is headquartered in Tallahassee, but has offices in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and Washington, D.C. The Zimmerman Agency is headed up by CEO Carrie Zimmerman, based in Tallahassee, and was founded in 1987.
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista for their inaugural ranking of the United States’ best PR agencies for the year 2021. Statista surveyed over 12,700 experts and 20,500 customers who nominated more than 5,000 firms. Participants were asked to indicate how likely they were to nominate a particular agency on a scale of zero (very unlikely) to 10 (very likely), then narrowed the list down to the top 200.
