As JIN continues to grow, providing its clients with cutting edge services and satisfying results, the company is being acknowledged more and more by industry experts. This year, PRovoke Media (formerly the Holmes Report) recognized JIN on their competitive list of top global PR agencies. On PRovoke Media’s “Global Top 250 PR Agency Ranking 2020, » JIN was listed 173rd – up 18 spots after being ranked 191rd last year. This year, JIN was also named as a 2020 EMEA Consultancies Of The Year Finalist as one of the top four French Consultancies of the Year. These accolades will help build momentum as JIN continues to drive forward as a tastemaker in the realm of digital influence and PR. This is the third consecutive year that JIN has been recognized by PRovoke in these categories.
This comes at a crucial time in JIN’s history when the company is nearing a turning point of positive growth and influence, especially in the United States. Founded in 2012, the agency distinguishes itself as an “international boutique agency” led by “digital natives,” utilizing a global understanding and inherent tech savviness to provide hands-on, ultra-personalized work to clients. European by nature with an office in the heart of New York City, JIN’s recent transformation has resulted in it becoming the ideal partner for American companies looking to launch or expand in Europe. Current JIN clients include Samsung, Chipotle, Crédit Agricole, Michelin, Coca Cola and Tinder.
On the PRovoke rankings, JIN US Managing Director Eliott Maidenberg stated:
“It is an honor to be recognized by PRovoke and to be climbing that many seats in the ranking this year. This is further evidence that there is space in the market for an international boutique agency like JIN. Our unique recipe mixing consulting, service, digital excellence and creating a global footprint is acknowledged by a growing number of amazing brands we have the pleasure of working with.”
Despite the COVID-19 crisis that is continuing to persist, JIN has maintained success and consistency by taking on everything with a humanistic approach. This summer, JIN announced it had raised €3 million in a round of funding from French private equity and venture capital firm CITA Investment. On the funding, JIN CEO Edouard Fillias stated:
“It is clear to us that a digital and integrated approach to communication is key, especially during and after the current crisis. Our ambition at JIN is to help our clients build positive influence and to support a digital recovery, based on trust and transparency.”
These funds will be used for a variety of growth initiatives, such as talent recruitment and investment in technology.
During these unprecedented times, Fillias highlights what has become evident to communications agencies (and to people in general).
« The biggest takeaway of this crisis is not digital transformation, but that in spite of the growing power of digital, we need leadership to survive and thrive, » he said.
By putting clients and employees first during this unfortunate time (and always), the company’s overall mission is epitomized. JIN’s mantra is “we believe in the power of tech and human connections,” with an emphasis on being a “positive influence” on society. As shown by JIN’s recent survey with OpinionWay titled, “The impact of technology during COVID-19,” there are countless ways during the crisis that technology has made life easier. This is something to be celebrated.
