Since opening Portland’s New York office in 2009, our work – in the US and globally – has grown significantly.
As we move in to our seventh year in the US, we are pleased to announce the opening of our new office in Washington DC, joining colleagues in New York, London, Doha and Nairobi.
While our teams already work globally, having worked in more than 85 countries over the past ten years, our Washington office further strengthens our ability to provide our clients with a presence across the world’s key political, financial, and media hubs – enhancing Portland’s ability to support major brands, government entities, non-profit organizations, NGOs, arts and cultural institutions, and foundations on global campaigns.
The DC office will be lead by David MacKay – who will come on board as General Manager US, overseeing both the Washington and New York offices.
Prior to joining Portland, David held senior management roles at a number of global communications consultancies in Washington, DC and Chicago – leading consumer marketing divisions and overseeing brand building campaigns for a wide range of U.S. and international clients including the Smithsonian Institution, The Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, Bloomberg Government, AllState Financial, the United States Mint, Motorola and Barnes & Noble.
