Action Expands Across Russia Bridging East and West
Action Global Communications moves full steam ahead with exciting new expansion plans in Russia planned for the second quarter of 2014, as it fast becomes the very first public relations company to launch a network spanning across the entire Russian territory.
Action Russia was founded in 2002, having quickly established itself as a leading independent agency with a unique portfolio of international and local clients. With a growing network of offices and correspondents throughout the country, Action is keen to add to the wealth and breadth of its services as part of its overall expansion strategy into untapped markets.
“These are really exciting times for us, as we approach new audiences and offer clients across Russia a truly all-encompassing solution. Russia is not only Moscow and St Petersburg and that is why a wider reach and approach is a necessity. We have already set the ball in motion for our growth plans, working towards this goal for over seven months now,” said Tony Christodoulou, CEO of Action Global Communications.
“Action is continuing to do what it does best, offering top quality communication services in areas where the industry is still developing. In line with our expansion in Libya and North Africa, Action is moving forward in its strategic approach, introducing its expertise into regions it believes have a real need and potential for communications services.”
With an international network spanning three continents, as well as hands-on local insights for over 40 years, Action Global Communications delivers game-changing ideas that shape perceptions, while building and protecting reputations for its clients in the world’s most promising markets. With offices in more than forty countries, they are located in Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the CIS countries, the Caucuses, Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and the Mediterranean.
Expansion plans in the second half of 2014 will see Action launching an impressive network that spans from Khabarovsk and Vladivostok in the Far East region of Russia, to St Petersburg, Kaliningrad and Novgorod in the North West.
Other key locations will include Yekaterinburg in the Ural region, Tatarstan’s prosperous capital of Kazan, Bashkortostan’s industrial capital of Ufa and Siberia’s capital of Novosibirsk; the third most populous city in Russia.
The network will be made up of Action offices and correspondents crossing over nine time zones from East to West. The current expansion goes hand in glove with Action’s CIS offices which stretch from Georgia all the way to Kazakhstan. Action’s expansion means that even the most distant or isolated business will now have a way to get their message across to the media and public at large.
To this date, Action has experience running successful projects in a number of Russian cities including St Petersburg, Rostov-on-Don, Krasnodar, Vladivostok, Ulyanovsk, Ulan-Ude, Tomsk and Perm.
Action experience in Russia spans a range of industries and services, including travel and tourism, banking, retail, aviation, technology, pharmaceutical, oil and gas.
“We always aim to match our creativity with our client’s business objectives, recognizing that the two concepts go hand in hand. Bringing innovation and a fresh perspective to every project that we take on board, we are committed to providing the very best communication strategies for our clients, always taking the varying socio-economic, political and cultural climates that affect each local market into consideration,” said Christodoulou.
