This organization has a profitable book of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) business, 4+ year average client relationship, and a strong and consistent pipeline that is poised for rapid growth. The market is demanding for organizations to develop compelling communications plans, yet there are many firms that cannot fully support or guide their clients in sustainability efforts. Thus, this PR firm is unique – they carry a high degree of credibility within the sustainability community that is often tapped by large organizations to craft ESG communications platforms and plans. The company also conducts multiple surveys per year and publishes proprietary ESG data and insights, which is widely quoted across well-respected publications. The CEO, along with the experienced leadership team, intend upon staying on after the acquisition, providing a seamless transition as the company expands.
