Newgate Communications has announced the signing of further network affiliations in Asia with Jet-Go Consulting Group, a public affairs firm in Taiwan, and with Corporate Reputation Group International, a corporate communications specialist in Macau.
The new affiliations follow the opening of Newgate’s first Asian office in Hong Kong in January, and further extend the group’s ability to provide its clients with support across multiple international markets.
Over the past year Newgate, a subsidiary of Porta Communications PLC, has been building a growing portfolio of regional and international offices, which already includes London, Edinburgh, Brussels, Frankfurt and Hong Kong. Its affiliate network in Asia now covers Taiwan, Macau, South Korea and Vietnam.
Richard Barton, managing partner of Newgate Hong Kong, said: “These affiliations, with firms and individuals that we have worked alongside on many occasions over the years, represent a further important step in the development of our regional network, and the geographic coverage we are able to provide to both local and global clients of the firm.”
Since its launch in Hong Kong in January 2013, Newgate has already secured several clients spanning the corporate, financial, education and professional services sectors, as well as advising on the communications aspects of several financial transaction, crisis and litigation situations. This week the firm was awarded Kroll Advisory Solutions’ PR retainer for Greater China.
