Newgate Communications has opened its seventh overseas branch in 2013, with the launch of Newgate Abu Dhabi. The introduction of a branch in this region follows office openings in Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane.
The office is located within the Abu Dhabi Media Zone Authority and will be headed by Habib Bacha, who will liaise closely with Byron Ousey, Partner in the Newgate, London office. Habib has extensive consultancy experience in the region and has collaborated with Byron previously at Gavin Anderson.
“The UAE and the wider Middle East region is the land of opportunities,” says Habib. “Financial communication is a must, especially after the expansion of the regional banks and finance houses around the world. Newgate is an expert in financial communications with an experienced team who understand the local culture and the industry.”
Newgate Abu Dhabi has already won its first client with the launch of Eurisbank, an Islamic financial services group.
