Geneva, Switzerland – 2nd October, 2012. MCI is pleased to announce the full acquisition of independent Brussels-based PA firm LOGOS Public Affairs, enhancing its value proposition to associations around the globe.
The establishment of MCI’s Public Affairs service builds upon an existing strategic partnership of over five years working with LOGOS and its founder, renowned Public Affairs practitioner, Fred Soudain. The service will consist of a team of ten consultants led by Fred Soudain, Jose Lalloum and Florence Bernardoni, seated in Brussels. Aimed at assisting associations with their intelligence gathering, outreach, policy influence, reputation management and stakeholder dialogue, the Public Affairs service will focus on three key practice areas of healthcare (pharma), automotive transport and energy and environment.
