MSLGROUP, the flagship strategic communications and engagement consultancy of Publicis Groupe, and the largest brand and reputation advisory network in Asia and Europe, has announced an affiliation with indie NZ PR consultancy One Plus One Communications.

MSLGROUP Asia Pacfic has a network of 34 owned offices and 13 affiliates, in 19 markets. One Plus One quickly established a strong presence in the market since industry veteran Kelly Bennett founded it in August last year.

“MSLGROUP and One Plus One Communications share the same philosophies and employ the same approach,” said MSL Asia regional business director Charlotta Lagerdahl Gandolfo.

“We both base our integrated communications strategy on thorough data and insights and execute through a seamless integration of creative, social and digital strategies to achieve maximum impact for our clients’ brands and businesses.

“We’re delighted to have One Plus One Communications support our clients and join us as our affiliate in New Zealand.”

Bennett said, “We’re thrilled to partner with MSLGROUP, in my view the region’s best communications and engagement consultancy.

“This partnership provides our existing and future clients with the insights and resources of a global network and we look forward to becoming an integral part of the MSLGROUP network of affiliates by providing a local perspective and on the ground support.”
