Edelman PR Worldwide has forged a strategic alliance with
specialist telecoms and energy public affairs consultancy EETC. The deal
is not an equity purchase, but involves EETC’s staff moving into
Edelman’s Brussels office and the two agencies sharing existing clients
from Edelman’s Bacardi and Levis to EETC’s Siemens and US energy giant
Enron. Eric Vaes, EETC managing director, becomes chairman of Edelman
Brussels. The agency’s existing head, managing director Constance Kann
is leaving the company in April.
