About Us

Our insights. Your impact.

Who we are

The stakeholder economy is complex and difficult to navigate. Winning support across audiences in a fast-moving, interconnected world is more important than ever. What, how, and when you communicate — and to whom — can mean the difference between success and failure. Seeing around corners, anticipating issues, managing risk, and moving quickly to solve problems is critical.

To succeed, you need sound strategic advice, deep experience, a 360º perspective, real-time intelligence, and flawless execution. With the right people and the right tools, you can seize opportunities and confront challenges — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere in the world.

That’s why we’ve created FGS Global.

Our History

FGS Global has its roots in four venerable firms across the world of strategic communications: Finsbury, Hering Schuppener, The Glover Park Group and Sard Verbinnen & Co.

Finsbury was founded in 1994 by Roland Rudd to fill a gap in the market for superior financial communications counsel in the UK. Over the following two decades, the firm expanded from a single office in London to twelve offices across the UK, Europe, the United States, the Middle East and Asia. The firm was acquired by WPP in 2001 and its US expansion was accelerated in 2013 when it merged with Robinson Lerer Montgomery, a titan in the world of crisis communications.
