About PNKetchum+

Brussels Office Since


Firm Description

PNKetchum+ is a rebranded consultancy that builds on the Public Affairs expertise of two world-class agencies, Ketchum and Porter Novelli Brussels.

We help global brands build their reputation and shape the European policy environment to create new business opportunities and protect their license to operate.

With decades of experience among our team members, we deliver highly tailored Advocacy/Public Affairs campaigns with closely integrated Policy Communications. Our strong network in the EU bubble allows us to inform, influence and navigate the legislative environment across a range of industries including financial, chemical, sustainability & environment, agriculture, food & drink, trade, and healthcare.

PNKetchum+ is a team of highly skilled professionals who thrive in fast-paced environments, always ready to jump in when a ‘house is on fire’.

Through us, clients have access to a global pool of talents from the world’s largest PR/PA group (Omnicom), with worldwide reach to service national, regional and international affiliates – all coordinated from Brussels.

Our expertise lies in strategic counsel on European Affairs that combines market intelligence gathering, in-depth analysis and stakeholder mapping, as foundations for effective engagement and productive campaigning. We build on traditional public affairs with integrated (policy) communications that helps amplify everything we do whenever we do it.

We are passionate about understanding industry’s concerns and transforming them into solutions for society’s needs. The conversations we have may be tough, but they produce remarkable outcomes.
