WELLINGTON—New Zealand and Australian corporate public relations firm SenateSHJ has been selected as partner of Public Relations Organisation International, a leading international network of independent public relations firms with 53 partner firms in 39 countries.
Senate, formed eight years ago and with offices in Wellington, Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra, specializes in reputation management, issues management, healthcare public affairs, social marketing and internal communications.
According to SenateSHJ CEO Neil Green and SHJ managing partner Rupert Hugh-Jones, “This increases our ability to broaden our network and strengthen our client service capability—in terms of assessing issues relevant to our clients, creating best practice learnings, and providing wider international support for client’s off-shore initiatives.
“An increasing number of our clients have multinational interests. As part of our involvement with PROI and its partner companies around the world, we now can offer our clients a truly seamless global service with intimate local knowledge, while maintaining our independent status and brand.”
