Bluegreen Vacations Names Finn Partners as PR Agency of Record

Vacation Ownership Company Taps Firm's Extensive Travel Experience and Consumer Lifestyle Expertise

NEW YORK, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading private vacation ownership company Bluegreen Vacations, selected Finn Partners as its PR agency to create and direct media relations, influencer programming, CSR and thought leadership initiatives for the Florida-based company.

After a competitive review, the assignment was jointly awarded to Finn Partners and Missy Farren & Associates (MFA), which was acquired by FINN in fall 2018. Bluegreen Vacations cites the teams' combined leadership in the worlds of travel, outdoor and lifestyle as key factors in the decision.

"We're in the business of creating lasting vacation memories for our owners and guests across the US and the Caribbean," said Famous Rhodes, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer, Bluegreen Vacations. "FINN's authentic approach to storytelling and expertise across our many areas of business stood out as being a natural fit as we continue to evolve our brand."

FINN's New York office leads the account, which joins other tourism and lifestyle clients Jamaica Tourist Board, I Love NY, Ski Utah and Confluence Outdoor.  

"We had an immediate connection with Bluegreen Vacations' passion for delivering experiences that build life-long memories and bonds," said Gail Moaney, founding managing partner, FINN. "It's a perfect fit for our growing travel and lifestyle practice and we're thrilled to join forces."

FINN continues to expand its global travel presence, most recently with the acquisition of CatchOn, a Hong Kong-based agency with offices in Shanghai as well.
