The international brand and reputation consultancy Leidar, with headquarters in Switzerland, has acquired the majority of Gandalf, a Norwegian communication agency. Leidar will now have offices in Kongsvinger and Oslo, Norway, London, England and greater Geneva area, Switzerland.
The integration of Gandalf creates a new type of full service communications provider; with strategic consultancy, creative solutions, global agenda setting and training.
“This expansion gives Leidar a significant presence in Norway. We already work with several international clients that will benefit from Leidar’s strategic communications competence,” says Anders Fjeld, managing director of Gandalf. Mr. Fjeld will now become managing director of Leidar Norway.
“Leidar has long standing relations with some of the major Norwegian and international companies. The communications and PR industry is right in the middle of a revolution. We are convinced that this requires new thinking and constellations. We combine solid strategic experience with creativity. I am looking forward to further develop our unique capability in the Norwegian and international market,” says Rolf Olsen, Leidar CEO.
