32-Percent Growth Vaults Lambert into Top-50 Public Relations and Investor Relations Firms Nationally

Michigan’s Largest PR Firm Also Earns Agency of the Year Nomination Amid 20th Anniversary

Lambert, the PR and investor relations shop born out of a Grand Rapids basement 20 years ago, now ranks 45th on a national list of U.S.-based firms. Citing 32-percent growth year-over-year, O’Dwyer’s – a leading publication for PR and communications professionals – pushed Lambert up nine spots from 2018 into the top 50. The magazine also ranked Lambert as a top-10 Financial and Investor Relations firm and a top-10 Environmental and Public Affairs Firm, based on annual fee billings.

“In a challenging landscape, we’ve proven our value as a trusted counselor to organizations of all sizes, which has allowed us to maintain many long-term partnerships while welcoming dozens of new clients to our roster,” said Jeff Lambert, founder and CEO. “It’s the era of the mid-size agency where companies are looking for world-class work without the cost-prohibitive overhead of a large firm. Our mix of exceptional delivery and subject-matter expertise, coupled with strategic hires and an expanded multimedia service offering, have made Lambert tough to beat.”

O’Dwyer’s also named Lambert a top-17 food and beverage public relations firm.
