OCTOBER 17, 2023: FGS Global, the strategic advisor for the stakeholder economy, is pleased to announce an associate partnership with Drury Communications (“Drury”), the leading Irish strategic communications and public affairs consultancy.
The new partnership gives FGS Global’s clients access to an unparalleled offering in Ireland across financial communications, public affairs & regulatory and campaigning. Drury and its clients will have access to FGS Global’s team of more than 1,200 communications experts in 27 offices around the world, advising clients day in, day out in navigating complex situations and reputational challenges. The partnership will jointly collaborate on large-scale and complex international mandates, while drawing on global and local insights and intelligence to the benefit of clients.
FGS Global is a leading global strategic communications consultancy, offering board-level and c-suite counsel in all aspects of strategic communications — including corporate reputation, crisis management, government affairs and is also the leading force in financial communications worldwide. The partnership with Drury fully aligns with the firm’s ambition to become a global category leader and strategic advisor to businesses around the world.
As an Associate Partner, Drury will continue to operate under its own brand and identity, while the new relationship has no impact on the independent company’s leadership or ownership structures.
“I am so pleased to welcome Drury to FGS Global as a new Associate Partner,” commented Faeth Birch, CEO UK Middle East and Asia. “Our partnership with Drury further strengthens our global footprint. Drury has extensive experience advising at the very highest levels of corporate and public affairs in Ireland, and a capability in financial communications that is unmatched in the Irish market. We look forward to extending our relationship with Drury and collaborating with their expert teams as our partners.”
“The team at Drury is delighted to become an Associate Partner of FGS Global,” commented Anne-Marie Curran, Chief Executive of Drury. “We have worked closely with FGS Global over many years to jointly advise several major clients, so this development enhances our already strong and established working relationship. Importantly, the partnership provides us with access to global perspectives and will fuel greater opportunities for collaboration on large-scale and complex communications challenges. Given FGS Global’s position as the leading force in stakeholder communications worldwide, this is a natural partnership for Drury as the Irish market leader in this space.”
Drury is FGS Global’s third Associate Partner, joining Fogel & Partners, a leading independent communications advisory firm headquartered in Sweden, as well LLYC headquartered in Spain.
Drury is a full circle team of communications strategists and public affairs consultants with over three decades of experience in a constantly evolving media & social landscape. Its team is expert in public affairs & regulatory relations, market campaigning in all its forms, with an unmatched capability in financial communications. Drury has a strong track record in advising the senior management of quoted companies, private businesses, and financial institutions, and has been recognised by Mergermarket over multiple years as having advised on more transactions, by value, than any other Irish PR firm.
