Klareco Communications, the public relations agency formerly known as Bell Pottinger Asia, has signed a deal with an Indonesian communications firm to expand its footprint into the market.

The agency has teamed up with Jakarta-based Kiroyan Partners to share clients and services in Indonesia.

The announcement:

The partnership enables both companies to leverage each other’s networks and provide integrated services to clients in Indonesia and the region. Klareco Communications and Kiroyan Partners have worked together on multiple occasions to service regional clients but the agreement will see both companies go further to develop businesses and market their services jointly.

With Indonesia due to hold provincial elections this year and the general elections in 2019, Klareco Communications and Kiroyan Partners will provide public affairs and communications advisory that will help international and Indonesian companies navigate the political and economic landscape. There are also plans to tap on Klareco Communications global network to support Indonesian companies that have ambitions to expand into the rest of Asia and beyond.

Under the terms of the partnership, Klareco Communications and Kiroyan Partners also have the option to second employees to each other to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and expertise between markets.

“We are pleased to partner with Kiroyan Partners which share our philosophy of providing top-quality services to clients. KlarecoCommunications aims to be the agency of choice across Asia for clients either looking at investing in or venturing out of the region and Indonesia is an important market given its vibrant economy and young population. We want to grow our relationships with international and local clients and provide the best support for them,” said Ang Shih-Huei, Chief Executive Officer, Klareco Communications.

Anton Rizki Sulaiman, Managing Director and President of Kiroyan Partners, added, “We are delighted to start this partnership that combines Kiroyan Partners’ profound local knowledge with Klareco’s global reach and experience. Both our companies share a common aspiration to deliver principled and sensible solutions to clients in the region, and we strongly believe that this is a positive step towards fulfilling that ambition.”

Klareco Communications’ expansion into Indonesia signals its growing presence across Asia and beyond. The consultancy recently announced its membership into Global Communications Partners (GCP), a global network of independent communications firms with specialist skills in financial and corporate communications.

“Klareco Communications’ partnership with Kiroyan Partners complements our membership in the GCP. It allows all parties to deepen conversations with existing clients and build new relationships in even more markets. We are already starting new business discussions with Kiroyan Partners and GCP members, and we look forward to exciting partnerships ahead,” shared Mark Worthington, Managing Director,Klareco Communications.

As a member of the network, Klareco Communications’ global reach is extended to over 20 countries and it will work alongside some of the best-in-class independent public relations consultancies in the world’s major financial markets, including London, New York and Frankfurt.
