Liberty Communications, a technology communications consultancy, is to open a New York office in early 2013, with a number of retained and project-based clients.
This will represent the first of two planned offices to open in the United States. Dee Gibbs, managing director and founder, said: “Liberty has built a successful business in the European market for our North America-based clients, and we are increasingly being asked to provide support in their local market under the Liberty brand. New York is the first city in which we will deploy a Liberty-owned venture, but this is just the start.”
Liberty is currently recruiting for a US-based team to help use their personal networks to grow the North American business. The selected candidate will join the current leadership team, including Nick Lane, Alexis Dalrymple, Elena Davidson and Matt Wood, in developing long-term business development plans and ensuring that all clients benefit from the company’s integrated marketing, PR and digital service strategy approach.
