Specialist communications and management advisory consultancy Montieth & Company has expanded its footprint in the Asia-Pacific market, with the addition of a new office in Hong Kong.

M&Co CEO and global managing partner Montieth Illingworth told O’Dwyer’s that the office is currently open and has begun to work with existing global financial services clients.

Illingworth said the Hong Kong outpost plans to expand that work and eventually add clients in fintech, blockchain and professional services, as well as issues, crisis management and litigation, “all areas we work in now with existing clients, amongst others,” he said.

“Our growth is being driven by both our specialist services and solutions and our ability to work seamlessly across multiple media markets,” Illingworth told O’Dwyer’s. “Clients want a holistic, integrated world view and diverse perspectives combined with focused execution that produces high impact results. That’s what we do.”

M&Co., which was founded in 2007, specializes in corporate and financial communications, investor relations, crisis management, litigation and public affairs.

The New York-based agency has additional offices in Washington D.C., London, Frankfurt, Paris and Madrid.
