The Edinburgh division will be run by Scotsman and associate director Alan Laing, whose background lies in PR and public affairs, providing corporate comms advice and public affairs counsel.
Earlier this month, the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games organising committee appointed Four Communications to develop its digital media strategy.
Commenting on the expansion, the group’s chief executive Nan Williams said:
‘The Scottish PR and public affairs market has developed since devolution and we want to ensure that our clients and potential clients in Scotland can have easy access to our award-winning service.’
Williams added: ‘In Oman, we already have clients with whom we have been working such as the refining and petrochemicals company Orpic and tourism development company Omran.'
