NEW YORK—Two networks of independent public relations agencies—ECP Global Communications and IPAN (International Public Relations Agency Network)—have merged to create PR World Alliance, a new network with 17 members in 13 countries.

Peter Stanton (pictured), chair of the new network and CEO of Stanton Communications in the United States, says that the merger will “strengthen our member companies' competitive edge in their respective markets, but also offer an attractive and economical alternative to global communications holding companies whose allegiance is first and foremost to their shareholders rather than to clients."

In addition to Stanton, members include Feintuch Communications in the US; Pelham Public Relations and Pielle Consulting in the UK; Cap & Cime PR and Kablé Communication Finance in France; NewMark Finanzkommunikation and Panama PR in Germany; and firms in Austria, Canada, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.

The network expects to announce additional partners in the coming months.
