SÃO JOSÉ DOS CAMPOS — Brazilian aerospace giant Embraer is currently reviewing proposals from several global agencies as the company seeks to reshape its approach to public relations.
The Holmes Report understands that a number of firms have taken part in the process, with a decision expected by the end of the month. Embraer's requirements are believed to be corporate-focused, and involve its global operations along with its home market of Brazil.
Embraer global head of marketing and communications Saulo Passos confirmed that the review was underway but declined to provide further details at this stage. It is understood that the company currently works with numerous PR firms across the globe.
With revenues of almost $6bn in 2015, Embraer is considered the world's third-largest airplane maker behind Boeing and Airbus. The company's business jet market has suffered since the financial crisis of 2008, but new aircraft, along with a cost-cutting program are expected to help boost earnings.
