Interel and AMG join forces

Interel, the global public affairs consultancy, today announced that
Washington DC based firm AMG, has joined its Group. Together both
companies will generate €25 million (EUR) ($27 million (USD)) in annual
revenues and employ more than 200 consultants, staff and advisors.

Adding to its own offices and partner firms in over 60 countries, Interel will now
benefit from a strong foothold in the United States as AMG’s infrastructure and
90 strong staff provide an instantly scalable growth platform which delivers the
following capabilities:

  • Strategic association management, meetings and government affairs
    services, focused on growth and achievement.
  • Sophisticated work with global corporate brands focused on business
    activation and engagement of target audiences.

 

Commenting on the acquisition, Fredrik Lofthagen, Group CEO of Interel said:
“We already work with a number of the world’s leading associations and
societies as well as many of the world’s best known corporate brands but the
acquisition of AMG is a further significant step in the successful expansion of
Interel as a global player. Besides our historic European basis, AMG gives us
a strong presence in the USA, the most advanced and innovative market in
our industry.”

“Joining forces with Interel is more than just a geographic or business
expansion, it represents a blending of aligned cultures and shared outlooks on
the global market”, said AMG’s CEO, J. Bruce Wardle, CAE. “It will be exciting
to see the affirmative impact this union will have on our clients and
professionals, both presently and in the future. I’m also looking forward to
continuing in my role as CEO of AMG to ensure the continuity of services and
solutions for those we serve.”

AMG’s clients will feel an immediate impact in the advocacy and government
affairs space through Interel’s unsurpassed global network and expertise in
strategically engaging government stakeholders.

Interel and AMG will continue to operate under their respective brand names
and without any changes in current management for the foreseeable future.
