Kivvit is once again among the top 20 largest U.S. independent communications firms, according to O’Dwyer’s 2022 rankings. It is Kivvit’s third consecutive year on the top 20 and comes on the heels of a year of growth that included the launch of brand strategy and talent teams in addition to team members at all levels across the firm. These investments are ongoing to meet the evolving needs of clients in today’s fast-changing landscape, and reinforce Kivvit’s continued dedication to being the Agency of the Future.

Below is an excerpt from the O’Dwyer’s article featuring Zach Silber, Chief Strategy Officer, highlighting our growing talent and award winning client work.


Kivvit, which ranks 16 on O’Dwyer’s list, showed a 12.9 percent gain in revenues to $39.8M.

Zach Silber, Chief Strategy Officer, said growth was fueled by “a culture that provides our team a platform to do their best work and constantly grow professionally.” 

Kivvit is “singularly focused on attracting and retaining great professionals and added a dedicated talent team to build internal infrastructure, processes, and programming.”

Heading into 2022, the shop made a series of transformative hires including a cohort of four managing directors that represent the largest expansion of our senior leadership team in the firm’s 20-year history.”

In 2021, Kivvit shaped public opinion and created policy and legislative outcomes, including helping pass a law in New Jersey that expanded access to critically needed harm reduction services, and achieving historic support for New York’s Intellectual and Developmental Disability (I/DD) sector in the state budget.

The firm also promoted a landmark study of QAnon by the Public Religion Research Institute that drove national coverage and sparked feverish conversation that became the most engaged story on Reddit’s /r/Politics front page, according to Silber.

The report was also cited by Members of Congress and DC influencers as part of a national conversation on QAnon’s rise.
