Management Buy Out at Drury Porter Novelli

Dublin, August 11th 2020 – The Directors of leading Irish public relations company Drury Porter Novelli have acquired the business from its owner Omnicom Group Inc. for an undisclosed sum in a management buy-out announced today, Tuesday.

The full-service agency has been part of the Porter Novelli network for the past five years, having been originally acquired by Omnicom in 2000. Founded in 1989, the company has a strong roster of clients across corporate and financial PR, public affairs, and its consumer and digital division, AMPLIFY@Drury. Following the completion of the transaction, the company will continue trading as Drury Communications.

“We have been an Omnicom owned agency for the past 20 years and have enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship. While we will continue to stay close to our colleagues in Porter Novelli, we were keen to become independent again”, said Anne-Marie Curran, Managing Director.

“Under management ownership, our team will be even more agile and innovative, exploiting the fast-moving evolution of communications consultancy. The consequences of the pandemic have re-enforced the critical role of effective communications for brands and businesses. Ironically, our clients’ requirement for assured advice and execution has never been stronger.”

The management team, led by Anne-Marie Curran, also comprises Chairperson, Billy Murphy, Finance Director, Sinead Birt and Director, Paddy Hughes.

 

COVID-19 COMMUNICATIONS AND REPUTATION SUPPORT

The national emergency means effective communications is more important than ever. Reaching key audiences from employees to political stakeholders is paramount for companies looking to protect their reputation during this period.

The lockdown measures have dramatically changed the communications landscape and new thinking and skills are required to successfully navigate the situation. Alongside our issues & crisis support, we are also helping many clients solve communications challenges through special services including: remote media training, communications strategy workshops, new government and policy landscape analysis, COVID-19 reputation response activations, and enhanced employee comms programmes.
