Today we announced the acquisition of Political Intelligence UK – one of Europe’s longest-established and most influential public affairs agencies.
The growing opportunities and challenges at the intersection of the technology industry and policy make public affairs a natural extension of Clarity’s increasingly comprehensive and robust set of products and services.
Political Intelligence UK has long been at the forefront of influencing policymakers and governments within the UK technology and healthcare industries. I can’t think of a more natural or synergistic partnership, and I can’t wait to work closely with Political Intelligence UK founder Nick Lansman and his awesome team to deepen our relationships with both sets of clients.
Taking us to a headcount of more than 160 people globally, Political Intelligence UK is Clarity’s second major acquisition of 2022 following our highly-successful integration of 93digital / 93x in May. This deal builds on our exceptional track record of growth via M&A, a strategy we plan to continue pursuing as we work on building the next generation of global marketing and communications agency.
The foundation of this strategy is an unrivalled commitment to people and culture: we are building the most progressive and inclusive agency culture on earth – a values-driven working environment in which people are nurtured as human beings and stretched as professionals.
From our very first discussions with Nick and his team, it was immediately clear that the culture and values alignment was strong, and bringing our businesses together would only serve to enhance our respective cultures and create more opportunity for our amazing teams. I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to make it happen.
