There were some significant new faces at Kreab Gavin Anderson in this period. In November 2010, FT journalist David Ibison joined the Stockholm office as a partner. In March Henry Manisty joined as a senior adviser after 15 years as global head of government and regulatory affairs at Thomson Reuters.
Then in September the agency bolstered its Tokyo office with the capture of Jonathan Kushner, head of comms and corporate affairs at the Japan and Korea operations of AIG's general insurer Chartis.
Brussels and Asia-Pacific were the strongest performing offices and the public affairs division had a good year. For the second consecutive year the Brazilian Association of Corporate Communications awarded its annual prize to S/A Comunicacao/Kreab Gavin Anderson.
In July 2011, Spain's largest domestic bank Bankia used Kreab Gavin Anderson to support comms around its EUR3.3bn float.
