Strong Growth at Klenk & Hoursch: More than 6 Million Euros in Revenue for the First Time
29.01.2019 von Daniel J. Hanke
Klenk & Hoursch grew by 12.8 percent in the 2017/18 financial year. Strong growth came from newly acquired clients, including Canopy Growth, Kaufland, Museum Brandhorst, Page Group, SAP Concur and the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. On the other hand, service areas such as platform and innovations communications, influencer relations or change projects in the context of the digital transformation boosted further growth. More than 50 consultants at the three locations in Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg achieved a total revenue of 6 million euros. The communications agency generated about one third of the turnover with clients in Europe and the US. PROI Worldwide, the largest international network of owner-managed agencies, which Klenk & Hoursch joined in 2015, contributed to this result.
“We are very pleased with the strong growth which confirms the quality of our work”, says Daniel J. Hanke, board member at Klenk & Hoursch. “Furthermore, we are very pleased that we were also able to see two long-term employees join us as partners. Kathrin Schum and Nina Friedmann will not only make the agency management younger and more diverse. With their expertise and commitment they have also made a significant contribution to the success of Klenk & Hoursch over the past years.”
