WASHINGTON, DC—Public affairs consultancies kglobal of Washington, DC, and Cambre Associates of Brussels, have joined forces to offer trans-Atlantic public affairs and public relations services, including grassroots advocacy and digital media campaigns.
Kglobal, a subsidiary of the Interpoint Group led by Fleishman-Hillard veteran Paul Johnson, offers strategic communications, grassroots advocacy, ally development, reputation and crisis management, public and media relations and digital communications services. It has offices in San Francisco, Atlanta and St. Louis, New York City and Tallahassee. Clients include the National Coalition on Health Care, The Concord Consortium, the Partnership for a Healthier America and Crane Currency.
Cambre Associates is an independent Brussels-based firm with an office in Madrid and partnerships in other European countries. Clients include Xerox, The Brewers of Europe, European Silicone Center and BIR (Bureau of International Recycling).
Since forging a formal partnership earlier this month, Cambre has introduced kglobal to the Interactive Travel Services Association, which is the US counterpart of Cambre client the European Technology & Travel Services Association.
“We pioneered an integrated approach to public relations and public affairs when we were founded 10 years ago,” says Cambre’s managing partner Tom Parker. “Kglobal has a similar ethos, based on best practice and in-depth knowledge of PR and public affairs landscapes. Since we work in many of the same industry sectors and with similar policy and commercial issues, we’ll now be able to offer seamless services for clients on both sides of the Atlantic.”
