Interel wins 2015 ICCO Independent Consultancy of the Year
London, 27th November 2015 – We are delighted to have won the inaugural ICCO Independent Consultancy of the Year award.
The independent panel of judges was impressed with Interel’s exceptional growth, new client wins, level of client satisfaction, and our motivated and high-performing team.
With growth of 20% and over 90 new client wins, it’s been an exceptional year for Interel. We took a strategic decision in 2014 to play to our strengths and focus on public affairs and government relations in the broadest sense. This is paying off, with clients appreciating our specialist knowledge and delivery capacity.
We now have 7 offices worldwide, employing 120 public affairs specialists, and are at the centre of a global network of the world’s best independent public affairs consultancies covering more than 60 markets. We are expanding rapidly.
Clients are increasingly coming to us for advice on strategic public affairs issues around accessing new markets and identifying opportunities driven by the political climate. We’re winning a growing number of multi-country as well as local accounts which play to our deep-rooted knowledge of the issues.
Interel CEO, Fredrik Lofthagen says, “I am seeing an interesting shift in the public affairs landscape. Business is waking up to the commercial value of an integrated approach to public affairs.
As political specialists with hands-on experience behind the scenes in parliaments and administrations around the world, we are helping our clients to identify political opportunity as well as risk and delivering measurable results through an innovative approach to campaigning and engagement.
2016 will be an exciting year for us and I would like to thank our exceptional team for their commitment and hard work over the last year. None of this would be possible without their enthusiasm, skills and passion”.
The awards, held in London yesterday, were hosted by ICCO (the International Communications Consultancy Organisation).
