Dukas Linden Public Relations (Independent)
“Since Richard Dukas launched the firm 18 years ago, Dukas Linden has made media relations the centerpiece of its work, proving the value of traditional tactics — and traditional media. Focused exclusively on financial services since the 2008 recession, Dukas Linden’s clients are regulars in the sectors’ key news outlets such as the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, Bloomberg and CNBC among them, a testament to the firm’s overarching belief that personal relationships with the likes of reporters and television producers matter. DLPR’s dedicated broadcast team secures 500-600 segments year on top-tier financial networks, bolstered by its robust media training and executive coaching offerings. President Seth Linden brings expertise in the arena, having worked as a Capitol Hill broadcast journalist before joining the agency a dozen years ago.
“2019 saw Dukas Linden break the $6m mark for the first time, with year-over-year revenue rising 17% to $6.3m, with support from its 24-person team. The lift was fueled by bringing on new clients including MetLife Investment Management, Duff & Phelps, AT Kearney and ARIS Capital Group, adding to a roster that includes Raymond James, Neuberger Berman, Robeco Global, Adams Street Partners, ARK-Invest and Eisner Amper LLP. Particularly notable is the firm’s decade-long support of Raymond James, effectively changing the perception of the Florida-based firm from a regional player to the nationally known financial services and wealth advisory companies it is today. Also in 2019, DLPR launched a dedicated crisis and transactional group, adding to its existing range of services.”
