Citigate Dewe Rogerson launches Fintech & Digital Asset division and becomes member of CryptoUK trade association
London – Citigate Dewe Rogerson (CDR), the global strategic communications consultancy, announces the launch of a new “Fintech & Digital Asset” division advising both private and publicly listed clients primarily in the UK, Europe and North America. The London-based division will be led by Angus Campbell, who joined CDR in September 2021 having previously run an advisory business specialising in media and public relations for financial services and technology businesses, covering areas that include fintech, blockchain, cybersecurity, robotic process automation and artificial intelligence.
CDR’s focus on fintech and digital assets through the new division is in conjunction with their membership of trade association CryptoUK; making CDR the first communications consultancy to join the ranks of leading fintech and digital asset companies.
CryptoUK is the self-regulatory trade association for the UK cryptoasset industry, established to promote higher standards of conduct. It has recently been appointed as the chair and a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Crypto and Digital Assets, which is made up of cross-party MPs and Lords who bring broad experience and expertise from a range of sectors including financial services, foreign affairs, digital innovation, women and equalities, international trade, and economic crime.
Angus Campbell, Director at Citigate Dewe Rogerson, said: “Technology continues to impact the financial services sector at a rapid pace, with the distinction between fintech and digital assets becoming ever narrower. However, many new and established technology businesses remain largely misunderstood by the media, mainly due to inadequate PR and communications advice.
“It’s great to be a part of this new vertical from Citigate Dewe Rogerson, a leading strategic communications consultancy with an exemplary reputation and we believe that becoming a member of the UK’s well established trade association CryptoUK will allow us to provide the best advice to our existing and future clients.”
Ian Taylor, Executive Director at CryptoUK, said: “CryptoUK is delighted to welcome Citigate Dewe Rogerson as our newest member. We are always striving for a strong community across the cryptoasset sector in the UK to allow us to evolve and grow in relation to the challenges the industry faces.
“With their expertise and experience supporting the sector and working with many organisations to strengthen the position of their communications, this will help to enable the success of the businesses they represent. They will prove to be an essential element of the whole crypto ecosystem in the UK. We look forward to working with them to support both our objectives, and those of our community.”
