Omnicom Group Inc. at a Glance


  • A worldwide company with over 5,000 clients in over 100 countries
  • Many opportunities for women and minorities


  • Lack of unified vision between various agencies
  • Lack of communication and collaboration between its different units

The Bottom Line

  • Omnicom is a kind of omnibus--a large global company with many separate divisions that are still working on communicating and collaborating with each other.

About Omnicom Group Inc.

It might not be omnipotent, but Omnicom Group creates advertising that is omnipresent. The company ranks as the world's #1 corporate media services conglomerate, with advertising, marketing, and public relations operations. It serves global advertising clients through its agency networks BBDO Worldwide, DDB Worldwide, and TBWA Worldwide, while such firms as GSD&M's Idea CityMerkley + Partners, and Zimmerman Advertising provide services for regional and national clients. Its Diversified Agency Services division, including Fleishman-Hillard, Integer, and Rapp, provides public relations and other marketing services.

Geographic Reach

Omnicom has US offices in New York, Connecticut, and Florida, while it has international offices in London, Shanghai, and Singapore. The group's network of agencies serves some 5,000 clients in more than 100 countries. In fiscal 2014 about 60% of the company's revenue came from the Americas, while Europe contributed about 30%, and the remaining 10% came from the Asia Pacific region.

Sales and Marketing

As a leading global advertising, marketing, and corporate communications company, Omnicom has a large and diverse client base. Its largest client accounted for 2.6% of fiscal 2014 revenue. Its top 100 clients accounted for approximately 50% of fiscal 2014 revenue.

Financial Performance

The company’s revenue has been trending upward over the last five years. In fiscal 2014 it reported $15.3 billion in revenue, an increase compared to the previous fiscal year's revenue of $14.5 billion. The growth was primarily organic.


Omnicom's fortunes have been buoyed in part by its agency networks and their consistently strong creative work (traditional media advertising accounts for almost half of its revenue), but the bulk of its growth has traditionally come from such areas as customer relationship management (CRM) and specialty communications.

Omnicom sees continued growth being tied to its ability to provide an ever-expanding menu of services to its largest clients, especially in the digital and social media arenas. The company has also been focused on expanding its media planning and buying operations.
