The award-winning boutique PR agency ascended 19 spots from the previous year to claim the #54 rank nationally. O’Dwyer’s 2010 PR Firm Rankings are based on companies’ 2009 net fees. This marks the second straight year rbb has made a double-digit jump in its place on the list.

This move is the latest industry accolade for the firm’s Travel and Tourism division, which has already received several awards this year.
