Public relations firm Finn Partners is opening an office in downtown Detroit, a move that will bring a handful of new jobs to the Motor City’s Central Business District.
Finn Partners will take office space in 1528 Woodward, just south of Grand Circus Park. The recently renovated office building, which is part of the M@dison Block
, is also home to Bizdom
. Finn Partners has three employees there and is in the process of adding more.
"We have a couple more we will be hiring in the next few months so it will be five or six people," Richard Funess, senior managing partner with Finn Partners
. He adds those jobs will be mid-level management that focus on public relations and social media.
The New York City-based firm specializes in PR and digital communications, specifically consumer and technology marketing, social media, global issues and corporate affairs/social responsibility, travel and economic development, education and arts and cultural communications. It has 300 employees around the world at eight other offices. It counts Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan as one of its clients in Metro Detroit.
"We'd like to add more staff as we grow," says Peter Finn, founding partner with Finn Partners. "That is our goal."
