AGC Communications Sets Foot in Europe

MONTREAL, Nov. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - AGC Communications, a reputation management and strategic communications consultants firm, announced today it has concluded a strategic partnership with Luxembourg based Distinct Communication, a firm specialized in corporate communications and change consultancy.

AGC having a vast experience in financial communications, the choice to partner with a Luxembourg firm was a judicious one as this country became, over the past fifteen years, one of the most important European hubs in the market of investment funds. With more than 150 banks on its territory, Luxembourg is the second largest centre for investment funds in the world after the United States of America.

This alliance reinforces the relations between both agencies who already share a common mission: to build and put in place custom-made communication strategies in order to allow their clients to reach their objectives. This agreement solidifies both firms' strategy to efficiently manage the reputation of their clients in a global context.

AGC Communications and Distinct Communication will collaborate to design relevant solutions for their clients based on both continents. This approach will allow for a more global coherence of the strategy and will insure that their clients' specific local issues are taken care of.

Furthermore, clients of both organizations will benefit from a wider spectrum of expertise and know-how following the partnership. Thus, Distinct Communication will take advantage of AGC Communications' expertise in reputation management and graphic design while AGC will benefit from Distinct Communication's know-how in transition management and post-acquisition integration.

AGC Communications CEO Ahmed Galipeau declared that "in a context where our clients are becoming more and more active on a global scale, our partnership with our European colleagues will help them plan and put in place more relevant strategies with a global strategy carried out locally. In one word, this will help them take full advantage of their global presence."

"We are happy about this alliance between Distinct and AGC, which has a well-known expertise in reputation management in North America. This deal is certainly a win-win situation for both our companies, but the ones who will benefit the most from it will be our clients", affirmed Laurence Ponchaut, Distinct Communication's General Director.
