The Global Communications Alliance (GCA) will bring numerous benefits to member agencies and their clients, including easier access to multiple international markets, and local expertise from trusted partners on the ground all over the world. Partners will be able to easily provide support to clients across several jurisdictions, and have access to the offices of other partners.
The network is being launched with ten founding members who are based in France, Germany, Canada, Portugal, South Africa, Kenya, the USA, Australia, Holland, and of course PLMR which is based in Westminster, London. PLMR will take on Secretariat duties for the first year of the GCA, a role which will then rotate around the other partners.
Founder and Managing Director of PLMR, Kevin Craig, said:
“PLMR is delighted to announce the launch of the GCA. Today is the culmination of several months’ hard work, and we are grateful to the contributions made by all of our partners as we have refined our ideas of what the network should be.
In the eight years since I founded the business, we’ve been very lucky to have worked with some exceptionally talented agencies around the world, and so it made sense to formalise this relationship by establishing the GCA. We’ve also identified some new partners, who have been recommended to us through trusted friends for their excellence in communications practice within their jurisdiction.
Communications agencies do not have to be multi-national conglomerates to have a truly global impact. We are looking forward to realising the enormous potential benefits to be had for both agencies and clients from access to native specialists in countries around the world.”
