Citigate Dewe Rogerson Paris strengthens its team and hires Robert Amady as Director
Citigate Paris has announced the arrival of Robert Amady as Director. Previously Financial Communication Practice Director with Publicis Consultants, he will be responsible for supporting listed and non-listed groups with their key strategic communication plans and strategy and will also participate in the business development of the agency.
This recruitment fits perfectly with agency’s growth momentum initiated over the past months, with Citigate actively developing its expertise in strategic communication consultancy and now ranking among the big market names in France, just like other offices of the Citigate Dewe Rogerson international network which are firmly established in their home markets.
“We are particularly pleased that Robert is joining Citigate. He perfectly understands the issues of our clients and will strengthen our expertise in reputation management and sensitive communication. Robert will contribute to strengthen the ambition set by the new management team of developing a 3-pronged offer integrating financial communication, corporate communication and sensitive/crisis communication. Furthermore, his arrival demonstrates the attractiveness of the agency and its growth potential,” commented Yoann Besse, Antoine Denry and Aliénor Miens, Managing Directors at Citigate Dewe Rogerson Paris.
In 2017, the agency confirmed its strong commercial momentum with the gain of several important missions in corporate, financial and strategic communication, in its areas of focus (financial institutions, industry and services, real estate, asset management, PE firms, consultancy firms), from the CAC 40, to fintech and biotech start-ups, including several fast-growing SME. The first half of the year has been notably marked by the launch of several key missions in corporate and financial communication for groups and brands such as Casino, Adisseo, ACG Management or Cigna. The agency has also been involved in several sensitive/crisis projects for PE funds and foreign companies involved in legal proceedings in France.
A graduate of EDHEC, Robert, 39, started his first 5 professional years in investment banking as a M&A analyst at BNP Paribas in Paris and in New York, then at Aforge in Paris. In 2008, he joined Publicis Consultants where, as Financial Communication Practice Director, he specialized in providing strategic advice and hands-on assistance to listed and non-listed industrial groups, financial institutions and PE funds with their ongoing corporate and financial communication programs. Robert also planned and executed PR & communication strategy of M&A and LBO transactions and cases of sensitive issue communication management.
