CNC Communications & Network Consulting (CNC), the global strategic communications consultancy, was named 2017 EMEA Financial PR Consultancy of the Year at The Holmes Report’s EMEA SABRE Awards in London this week.
The SABRE Awards attracts more than 2,000 entries from across the EMEA region each year. Judges remarked on CNC’s rapid revenue growth, its advice on many of the most high profile M&A transactions across the EMEA region, and the successful development of its digital capabilities.
According to mergermarket, which compiles M&A data around the world, CNC ranked 6th globally for M&A in 2016, 4th in Europe, 2nd in Germany and 5th in the UK.
Bernhard Meising, CNC CEO, said: “The last year has been outstanding for CNC. We advised many of Europe’s largest organisations on a range of exciting and complex challenges and enjoyed strong revenue growth as a result.
“While M&A was an important part of our successful year, so too was the development of our digital and change management offers and our innovative approach to crisis and issues management, especially in the area of cyber security. In 2017, we want to remain at the forefront of innovations in our industry while continuing to build our international footprint, as evidenced by our recent announcement to combine with the leading Nordic strategic communications firm JKL.”
