Portland is a fully integrated communications consultancy trusted by some of the highest profile organisations, governments and individuals in the world.
Founded in 2001 by Tim Allan, Portland initially occupied a small office in London with four desks. Now our fast-expanding staff of over 200 work across our global offices in Washington DC, New York, Doha and Nairobi, as well as in London.
After recruiting key personnel, bringing experience of Africa, Europe and the new digital landscape into the fold, Portland officially launched as an international business in 2007.
The opening of our New York office followed shortly in 2009, after establishing a global footprint with clients including the Mo Ibrahim Foundation and Kofi Annan. At the same time, we recruited a new roster of staff experienced in digital, design, brand, content and video, enabling Portland to lead the field in the new technology and content creation landscape.
We are pioneers in integrated communications campaigns and continue to expand our areas of expertise. We help clients manage their reputation, improve their visibility and media coverage – and deliver global communications campaigns across multiple platforms.
Teams of experienced and multilingual consultants invest time to understand clients from the inside out, work with them to set clear strategic direction, and then bring the whole of Portland’s abilities to bear to deliver their objectives.
At Portland we never rest on our laurels; we constantly strive to improve our work and be at the forefront of the industry.
