Newly filed accounts for the Communications Clinic show accumulated profits rose by 17.5% to €682,105 in the 12 months to the end of last March.

The firm represents the likes of KPMG, AIB, Bank of Ireland, Unicef, Dublin City University, and the GAA. One of the contracts won by the firm last year was a €48,000 media training contract with the gardaí.

In winning the contract, the Communications Clinic beat off bids from 11 other PR firms. The contract is for an initial year with an option to extend for a further three.

The firm’s workforce increased from nine to 13 last year. This contributed to staff costs increasing by €274,495 to €890,979.

They were made up of €829,586 in wages and salaries; €46,863 in social insurance costs, and €14,530 in ‘other pension costs’.

Directors’ remuneration last year increased from €235,120 to €388,031. Five directors are listed in the accounts — namely Mr Savage, his parents Ms Prone and Tom Savage; Daragh O’Shaughnessy and Eoghan McDermott. The company’s cash balances last year decreased by €78,302 from €619,628 to €541,326.

All three members of the Savage family had worked at Carr Communications before establishing the Communications Clinic in 2008.

Anton Savage combines his PR duties with having one of the plum jobs in Irish radio after taking over the mid-morning slot from Ray D’Arcy on Today FM in January of last year
