Consultancy of the Year award for Interel at 2016 SABREs

We’re delighted to announce that Interel won SABRE Consultancy of the Year (Benelux), in recognition of the exceptional results we deliver for clients in public affairs, and the fact that we are “the only Brussels-based firm to build our own truly international presence”.

Our international profile and growing number of multi-country accounts is testament to the success of the Interel Global Partnership, which now covers 60 markets and links more than 30 leading independent public affairs consultancies worldwide.

Our EU practice, one of the biggest in Brussels, was recognised for our innovative approach, incorporating traditional PR, video, corporate storytelling, digital, social media and content creation into our public affairs work to deliver measurable outcomes for clients. Our Belgian practice was singled out as one of the few in the country to combine excellence in public affairs with exceptional PR capabilities, leading to 17% growth in a challenging market last year.

Interel’s CEO Fredrik Lofthagen said, “2015 was an incredible year for Interel, and we’re already building on that success in 2016, with a number of high profile multi-country client wins and a strong base of retained clients. These awards recognise the hard work and commitment of our exceptional team, who I’d like to thank. Without them, none of this would be possible”

Managing Partner of Interel’s Belgian practice, Baudouin Velge, said: “This award is a great recognition of the excellent work done by our consultants over the years. Interel has built a strong reputation, delivering a truly integrated approach to communication. As a result, we have worked on some of the most visible and interesting assignments in Belgium.”

These awards are clear recognition that we are innovating around public affairs and responding to shifting client priorities. But more than that, our outstanding performance is a result of the strong and long term relationships we build with clients and the results we systematically deliver.

We were also recently recognised at the inaugural ICCO Global Awards where we were named EMEA Independent Consultancy of the Year, as well as at the Public Affairs Awards 2015, where we won EU Consultancy Campaign of the Year.
