The business has a substantial footprint in Asia and Europe.

This year has seen the departure of several key members of staff. In June, worldwide CEO Richard Constant left and in recent weeks, financial comms president Fergus Wylie, CFO Gene Golembeski, Japan's managing partner Deborah Hayden and Hong Kong managing partner Richard Barton have all departed.
