Our growth has always been as a response to meeting clients’ needs – and we see these opportunities in Bulgaria as we speak,” says Morten Rud Pedersen. “We value our long-term relationships and exciting challenges, advising our clients in an increasing number of cultural and professional areas. Today we are a leading European public affairs and communications consultancy, with a Nordic heritage of transparency, pragmatism, and accessibility.”

“I am honoured to join such a prestigious firm with a competent and experienced team across Europe”, says Gergana Aneva. “We are already getting started and connecting with colleagues in other offices, and although we are a small team today, we can really feel the strength of the group to support us. Not only will we offer international clients advice in the Bulgarian market, but Bulgarian companies will also have the opportunity to work with a truly European advisory firm nationally and internationally.”
