Kuala Lumpur Next Stop on Fifth Ring Global Expansion Journey

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - Fifth Ring, a leading international integrated communications agency, has taken the first steps of a strategic expansion into Asia with the opening of its debut Malaysian office in Kuala Lumpur.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, Fifth Ring's latest expansion highlights the increasing development opportunities across its key market sectors of energy, construction and property. It will be taking its integrated communications offering, which strategically combines business positioning, public relations, advertising, design & production and digital media & marketing, to the Malaysian market.

Group managing director, Clif Collier, believes that the expansion will not only open up new opportunities for Fifth Ring, but will also provide added value to its current clients.

"Our Dubai and Abu Dhabi offices are a bridge into the East, and with offices already in the major energy capitals of the world, including Houston and Aberdeen, the decision to have an office and a full-time team based in Malaysia was the next logical step for us," said Collier. "Our specialty areas, oil and gas, construction and the property industry, very much reflect the growth areas within the Malaysian market."

Fifth Ring's new office is located in the heart of the city's Golden Triangle and is led by senior communications consultant, Abi Firth, who is permanently based in Kuala Lumpur. Several of the company's experts have been supporting her on the ground, with senior business positioning consultant, Jayne Craib, seconded on a long-term contract to the business, and the team are at final stage discussions with a number of companies.

The team will be recruiting locally across all areas of the company in Kuala Lumpur in order to facilitate the growth of the business and develop the local delivery team on the ground. With support from its United Kingdom, North America and Middle East teams, Fifth Ring has set high but realistic targets for its new regional office.

"This is the latest step, but by no means the last, in fulfilling our vision of being the leading business to business specialists, with particular focus on energy, in the world," said Collier.
