ENGIE Impact, accelerator of sustainability transformation for corporations, cities and governments across the globe, has appointed Firefly Communications Group to handle communications in the UK, Germany and Belgium.
ENGIE Impact works with executives and organisational leaders to set tailored strategies and specific roadmaps to achieve their sustainability and zero-carbon objectives, across energy, water, waste, and more.
Firefly was selected to support ENGIE Impact’s launch and increase brand awareness across three European markets. Firefly will be working with ENGIE Impact to amplify expertise as well as showcase organisations making great strides towards a zero-carbon future.
Charlotte Stoel, Group Client Services Director at Firefly, commented, “To say sustainability and climate change is a huge talking point is an understatement – every paper, online publication, social channel and political agenda is flooded with news and views on the actions we’re all taking to protect the future of our planet. ENGIE Impact is playing a crucial part in accelerating this transformational shift within organisations. The company’s purpose is truly inspiring and has the whole team determined and focussed on getting the recognition ENGIE Impact deserves.”
“Now ENGIE Impact has launched, it’s time to establish ourselves in the European markets and drive awareness of our ability to support the worlds most influential cities and brands in accelerating their sustainability transformation”, said Raevyn West, Senior Director, Growth Marketing at ENGIE Impact. “Firefly’s off to a fast start this year and the team’s work has been recognised for its value in increasing awareness in Europe. We have ambitious plans for 2020 and we look to Firefly to support us in achieving our goals.”
Firefly Communications has appointed Marco Dautel as associate director to strengthen its German agency, based in Munich.
Marco’s area of responsibility will be to enhance strategic client work and to further develop the company’s consulting and service offering, as well as the overall business in Germany. Marco brings 15 years of PR experience to the table, having worked for clients in the technology, mobile, security, consumer electronics and travel industries.
Firefly Group CEO Claire Walker says, “We have a solid client base in Germany and a great team that delivers outstanding results. With Marco onboard, we are further strengthening our proposition. The combination of his and our pan-European experience in the technology and digital services markets will help Firefly Germany grow as it continues to shape the reputations of its existing and future clients.”
Marco joins from German leisure and experience expert, Jochen Schweizer, where he led the public relations efforts of the group and its founder. Before Jochen Schweizer he led the consumer technology teams at Edelman Munich and Bite Communications Germany, where he worked for a wide range of clients such as Microsoft Xbox, HTC, HP, Norton by Symantec and Razer.
