Edelman to acquire Vollmer public relations firm

| No Comments

Edelman has signed a definitive purchase agreement to acquire Vollmer Public Relations, the largest independent PR firm in the American southwest. Edelman plans to merge Vollmer's Austin, Dallas and New York operations into its own and will establish Vollmer's Houston headquarters as the hub for a new Edelman Southwest, serving Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, New Mexico and Kansas. The new regional headquarters will be home to 50 Edelman employees and will exceed $9 million in annual revenue. "We aspire to be the leading firm in every market in which we do business, and Vollmer's considerable consumer marketing and corporate experience, well-known crisis management capability and stellar reputation will give us the chance to realize that aspiration in the southwestern United States," said Edelman CEO and president Richard Edelman.
