O’Dwyer’s: Bianchi Ranks #2 in Top Detroit PR Firms in Automotive

Posted Apr. 26th 2023

TROY, Mich., April 26, 2023O’Dwyer’s, a public relations trade publication long considered the “Bible” of the industry, has ranked Bianchi Public Relations, Inc. – a metro Detroit-based public relations agency that specializes in the automotive and mobility technology sector – among the top independent PR firms in several categories.

O’Dwyer’s latest rankings put Bianchi PR at #2 among Detroit-area based independent PR firms and #11 nationally in the automotive / transportation sector.

The mobility PR agency is one of only two firms headquartered in metro Detroit that is ranked in the top 25 nationally, based on 2022 billings, in this automotive / transportation PR specialization.

Also, in its 2023 listings, O’Dwyer’s ranked Bianchi PR as the #2 independent PR firm headquartered in the metro Detroit area and #24 among independent PR firms based in the Midwest.

The rise in the firm’s rankings, according to founder and president Jim Bianchi, came as the firm increased revenues in 2022 by more than 34 percent, despite a challenging and supply-chain-constrained automotive market.

“This unprecedented growth is a testament to the unmatched expertise of our staff, the loyalty of our long-standing clients, and new engagements in the emerging electric vehicle and automated driving systems supplier space,” Bianchi said. “As a result, our firm’s 30th year was its best year so far.”

The 2023 O’Dwyer’s rankings published this week are the publication’s 54th annual effort.
