About Edelman

Brussels Office Since


Firm Description

Edelman is a global public affairs and communications marketing firm. Our mission is to support our clients in navigating an ever more complex, interconnected and politicized world. We partner with world leading businesses and organizations to evolve, promote and protect their brands, reputation and licence to operate.

Ownership Structure

As an independent, family-owned company, we do not answer to investors but solely to our clients. We use our profits to strengthen our business, improve the lives of our employees, advance our industry, and serve as a responsible citizen of the world. Our commitment to the principles of our founder, Dan Edelman, are expressed in our core values — excellence, curiosity, and courage — that we strive to work and live by every day.

With more than 65 offices worldwide, our global network delivers the right local expertise wherever you would like to undertake public affairs, communications or marketing activities.

Thought Leadership

Our work is rooted in our unique IP: The Trust Barometer. For more than 20 years, we have studied the influence of trust across society — government, media, business, and NGOs — to shape conversations, drive results and earn reputation. Our work has proven that an organization’s ability to succeed or fail is defined by trust – and our industry-leading research explains why. Learn more.
