Agency loses colon, adds letter
Continues to have more professionals dedicated to clients in Russia than any other international agency
EM, the dominant player in the Russian financial PR and IR market, and the agency until now known in Russia as M:Communications, is pleased to announce the evolution of its brand and the expansion of its Russia-focused team, following a successful MBO expected to complete in August. EM will be headquartered in London, while preserving its unrivalled on-the-ground presence in Moscow.
EM is also delighted to announce the imminent return to its team of PR/IR industry legend, Stuart Leasor. Stuart is one of the all-time greats when it comes to representing Russian and other emerging markets companies in the world's media, both in times of opportunity and conflict.
Tom Blackwell, CEO of EM, said:
"While we are excited to be launching a new company, there is in fact nothing 'new' about our team. We are all Russia veterans and have worked together in one combination or another for several years.
"Key to our success so far has been our ability to attract and retain the most talented and experienced professionals who understand Russia and Russian, allowing us to maintain the highest level of client service. Going forward, we will continue to seek out and hire the very best talent in the markets in which we operate.
"We would like to thank our fabulous clients for all of their support and commitment, without whom we would not have had a business to buy.
"Lastly, we haven't forgotten the 'entertainment commitment' we made earlier this year. In this area above all, we are committed to exceeding all expectations."
