At the beginning of 2021, most everyone was looking ahead across a similar landscape. Pursuing ways to alleviate the pandemic’s effects. Making diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) commitments. Seeking closeness, community and connections. At FleishmanHillard, we did all that. But we did something else, too. We went beyond the solutions that were plain to see. We uncovered opportunities to give the world what it didn’t know it needed. And we gave it. Infusing romance into home improvement with Lowe’s. Sweetening lockdown with Selecta ice cream. Giving the 1.2 billion people living with disabilities a global light show. And more.

The uncommon pathways we blazed into culture, communities and industries were fueled by principles like “seek new and different ideas” and “think boldly” and backed by an innovative spirit that’s not only kept us young and relevant for 75 years, but in decades-long relationships with clients worldwide. In 2021, our unexpected approach made the year better. And it replied in kind with the strongest revenue performance in our history. Plus, $170M in new business wins (up $17M YOY). A 90% overall close rate (our highest in the past decade.) Nearly 500 new clients. And 19% growth across our Top 50 clients.
