The independent public relations agency Free Communication became the unique member of PRGN – Public Relations global Network, from Romania, as a result of three month selection process. PRGN is one of the world’s largest international public relations networks. PRGN harnesses the resources of 49 independent public relations firms and more than 800 communications professionals to connect international companies and organizations with individual and culturally diverse markets globally. The induction into the organization was made during PRGN’S fall meeting in London, England. Joining PRGN are Free Communication representing Romania and Bianchi Public Relations, Inc. from Detroit, USA. “The addition of these two outstanding public relations firms to our network helps expand our footprint in Eastern Europe and the Midwest region of the United States,” said Uwe Schmidt, president of PRGN and owner of Industrie AG, the PRGN affiliate based in Hamburg, Germany. “PRGN’s collective client base is more geographically diverse than ever, so it’s important for us to continue expanding our network of agencies that can support our clients wherever and whenever they need us.” “I had an eye on the industry, at a global level, for quite a long time in order to identify a well-presented network to help us expand coverage without the cost of unsubscribing from our DNA status as independent firm. Our selection as the sole representative in Romania PRGN perfectly fulfills this aspiration. It also represents and confirms our standards globally – business model, clients portfolio, quality level of services. Last but not least, opens up interesting opportunities for future development and real access to resources, networks and international know-how”, explained, Alexandra Dinita, CEO and main shareholder of Free Communication. “The advantage of this network is its local reach in the marketplaces we serve. Each agency owner represents a community in which they’ve been living, working and managing a business in for many years,” said Schmidt. “Both of these agencies represent clients in the automotive and healthcare industries, which are important sectors for our network. We’re proud to welcome these firms into the organization.” Agency members are independent, local, owner-operated public relations and communications agencies that share expertise and resources, while providing broad-based comprehensive communications strategies to clients worldwide. The PRGN partners meet twice a year in cities around the world. The next meeting will be held in April 2015 in Seattle, Washington. At each meeting, the firm’s leadership discuss ways the network and its client base can collaborate in local markets around the world.
