There are bigger public relations firms in Spain than Consultores Quantumleap, but there are few more experienced. President Rafael Alberto Pérez and director Jesús Timoteo Álvarez are both 20-year veterans of the communications industry and respected academics. Pérez is a professor of strategy at the Complutense University of Madrid, a founder and former manager of the Centre of Studies for Economic Communications, and author of Estrategias de Comunicación. Álvarez is a professor of journalism at the Complutense University of Madrid, having worked as a journalist for 15 years, and has authored several books on media relations.
The firm’s experience is reflected in the tenure of some of its larger clients. BP has been with Quantumleap since 197, and clients such as expo company Exponor and distribution company Master Cadena have been there since the mid 90s. Other clients include Herbalife, AMS, Grupo Frial, and Indesit, with additions over the past 12 months including Complutense University, the government of Galicia, the Spanish Defense Ministry, the Cervantes Institute, and the Carolina Foundation.
With a core team of 11 consultants—supplemented by freelance specialist partners—the firm can offer a broad array of corporate and marketing communications expertise with a focus on strategy. Recent years have seen growing expertise in Latin America, where the firm handles several regional assignments—one project last year involved coordinating PR activity across 22 countries. It is also a member of the IPREX network of independent public relations.
