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.

It is thought that, before their departures, they were in discussions around a possible buyout of a portion of the agency. Kreab co-founder and KGA group chairman Peje Emilsson has assumed Constant's CEO duties, while senior partner Gunilla Baner has been promoted to managing partner in London.

Kreab Gavin Anderson was hired recently to provide comms help to the Pollard Inquiry into the BBC's handling of the Jimmy Savile investigation.

In PRWeek's Top 150 PR Consultancies 2012, Kreab Gavin Anderson was estimated at a £5m fee income and has 24 staff in London.
