We’re thrilled to share that BerlinRosen is making a majority investment in Derris. With a focus on defining the communications for the new generation of companies that speak with consumers rather than at them, Derris has launched more than 25 brands from zero to over $1BN in enterprise value. Clients include Warby Parker, Everlane, Glossier, Reformation, Shopbop, and Alaska Airlines.

Founded by Jesse Derris and Partner/President Lisa Frank in 2013, Derris will continue to retain its brand, remain independent and under their leadership. The agency will immediately benefit from the expanded resources and talent of the BerlinRosen network. Derris services include brand positioning, strategic communications, content and creative, experiential, influencer marketing, internal and crisis communications.

We’re thrilled to bring their creativity and leadership in the sector into our expanding partnerships across the communications industry. For more information, check out this PRWeek exclusive.

“Valerie Berlin and Jonathan Rosen are building the integrated marketing firm of the future, and a place we’re thrilled to call home. More than that, they are wonderful humans and have a best-in-class team and culture. We couldn’t be more excited to join forces and add our knowhow and team to what they’re building.”
