Founded upon the principles of excellence, serving the client's interest, and teamwork, we've evolved into a specialist PR firm offering an integrated set of services and solutions across global media markets

Founded in 2007, the firm’s early work focused on providing communications support on corporate critical special situations.

We grew dramatically during the Great Financial Crisis, assisting our clients on a range of issues, crisis management and litigation matters. With steady annual growth we launched new practice groups to offer marketing communications, corporate and financial communications, content development and public affairs services and solutions.

While much of our initial sector focus was financial services, where we retain deep domain knowledge, we now work with clients in over 25 sectors. Early on in our evolution, we also developed expertise working with global organizations, large and small, on their cross-border initiatives expanding into new markets with innovative products and services and special situations needs. That has enabled us to develop a highly integrated, flexible and budget efficient global model enabling us to work in over 25 media markets across the world.

By The Numbers

  • 10 media markets served simultaneously for a single account
  • 7 time zones we work in every single day
  • 70% clients referred by business partners

Our Firm’s History

2007 Montieth & Company was founded

We were founded as a specialist corporate and financial communications consultancy to advise on corporate critical issues and events. This work accelerated with counsel to clients impacted by the Bear Stearns ABS Hedge Fund failure in mid-2007 followed by a long series of management advisory and media relations engagements resulting from the Great Financial Crisis. This included advising victims of the Madoff Fraud and Lehman Brothers bankruptcy.

As markets stabilized, we launched a marketing communications practice focused on the financial and professional services sectors, which added to our issues management, crisis and litigation PR work.

2009 Attained our first ex-U.S. client

Our first cross-border client came in 2009 when we launched a new investment strategy for U.K. asset manager Standard Life Investments (now Aberdeen Standard Investments) in the U.S. media market.

2011 Deepened our cross-border expertise

Our cross-border expertise deepened with the support we provided Brazilian investment bank Itaú BBA. We also expanded our work with global institutional asset managers and other financial services companies. As we grew, we diversified our client base by sector and added content and thought leadership development capabilities to our core media relations work.

2014 Grew our litigation practice

We expanded our litigation practice globally, working on numerous special situations matters involving multiple media markets and jurisdictions. This included cases of Nazi-looted art throughout Europe and the U.S., and litigation to protect the rights of 401k plan savers and retirees.

2016 Established a foothold in EMEA

We expanded our operations to Europe with the launch of our first global hub in London. The expansion provided our U.S. clients with a platform to reach not just the U.K. market but also media in continental Europe. As the office grew, we took on clients needing representation both in the U.K. and the U.S. which began to formally frame our flexible, integrated and efficient cross-border service model across all of our practice groups.

2018 Established public affairs practice

Our team members have extensive experience working within local, state, and federal governments and in the non-profit sector. Their expertise serves as a guiding blueprint for how we structure our public affairs programs. Our holistic set of services includes legislative analysis, government relations, stakeholder engagement, and grassroots organizing. Our work in this area is guided by our corporate values and our commitment to improving the communities in which we operate. 

2019 Expanded to APAC and launched Montieth SPRG

Montieth SPRG combines Montieth & Company and SPRG, Asia’s leading PR network with 15 offices in APAC and the only independent PR agency to have won the Asia Pacific Network of the Year title from PRWeek. This joining of forces is the result of a collaboration between the two agencies that stretches back over 20 years. 

2020 Launched branding & website development practice

As part of our ever-evolving integrated marketing communication capabilities, we provide creative advisory, logo creation, website content and architecture services, and end-to-end in-house management and execution of website design and development. We work with creative experts who produce animated videos, b-roll, ads, graphics, and illustrations, among other marketing collaterals. Our team has experience with search engine optimization (SEO) which is at the core of our website development work. 

2022 Expanded to Latin America

Montieth & Company has long worked with Brazilian companies seeking to build their brands in Europe and the U.S. We have also advised on investor relations for Brazilian enterprises that have U.S. investors and assisted with IPOs on the NASDAQ. As our global, cross-border work continues to expand, clients that we represent in multiple media markets retained us to also work in the Brazilian and Mexican media markets. 

Our Corporate Identity
& Workplace Culture

We’ve created a corporate culture upon the values of excellence, collaboration, diversity, and inclusion and take pride in the work that we do and the global team we’ve built over the last decade.

We’ve developed a diverse team that thrives on collaboration, mutual support, and achieving results for our clients. That diversity is another point of pride for Montieth & Company. We are uniquely capable of serving global clients across media markets because we have an executive team with a wide variety of backgrounds, cultural experiences, and perspectives.

At the same time, we know that being diverse and inclusive is part of a larger social responsibility and one we take very seriously. We have known and acted on this before today’s acute and urgent attention to social equity. But we also know that we need to do more. See how we’re fulfilling that responsibility through our work:
