Finsbury, The Glover Park Group and Hering Schuppener form global strategic partnership
WASHINGTON, DC—May 3, 2017— Finsbury, The Glover Park Group and Hering Schuppener Consulting, three of the world’s best strategic and financial communications and public affairs consultancies, today announced the formation of a strategic partnership on a unified global platform. The entry of The Glover Park Group enhances the successful partnership that Finsbury and Hering Schuppener launched in April 2016.
At a time of significant change in a fragmented industry, the partnership brings together three highly trusted brands that leverage their individual strengths to give clients unrivalled advice and execution in the major international centers of business, finance and policymaking.
The partnership provides public and private companies and leading institutions and non-profits bespoke communications counsel combined with global reach and the simplicity of a single, seamless relationship. Clients are supported by integrated global practice groups that deliver insight and impact on Capital Markets and Transaction Communications, Corporate Reputation and CEO Communications, Crisis and Issues Management, and Corporate and Public Affairs.
The partnership provides access to a global network of more than 500 experienced professionals with backgrounds in public and media relations, finance and investment banking, journalism, the law, policy, government and research. The new partnership operates from offices in 15 cities, including Abu Dhabi, Berlin, Brussels, Beijing, Dubai, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Moscow, New York, Singapore, Tokyo and Washington, DC.
In today’s borderless business and media world, clients should not have to stitch together a patchwork of local agencies to get the highest level strategic counsel; this partnership raises the bar for strategic communications and public affairs services on a global basis. While the three firms retain their individual leadership structures and pursue their own domestic business opportunities, they work together under a common brand identity in a global framework that allows them to pool resources, expertise and capabilities and leverage each other’s unique focus areas in the interests of clients.
The Glover Park Group joins the partnership as one of the premier strategic communications firms in the United States. Founded in 2001 and with offices in Washington, DC and New York, the firm has grown to 170 professionals who help clients navigate public affairs, build their corporate brands, engage geographically-diverse, multiplatform audiences and manage their most complex issues.
