Lansons Intermarket is now Lansons
Today, Lansons formally closes on its acquisition of Intermarket Communications. The New York firm, using the name Lansons Intermarket since October 2019, is being rebranded as Lansons.
“The rebrand signifies closer ties between our teams in London and New York,” said Tony Langham, Chief Executive, Lansons. “In addition to collaborating on shared global client accounts, our teams on both sides of the Atlantic have worked hand in hand this year to integrate our businesses. Today we go to market as one company, with a unified brand, culture and set of capabilities.”
Intermarket, founded in 1986 by Martin Mosbacher and the late Matthew Zachowski, is a leading provider of integrated communications and marketing services to financial services, technology, corporate and B2B clients. Today the agency is the New York office of Lansons and is led by Josh Passman, who joined as Chief Executive Officer in April 2021.
“From the perspective of delivering an expanded range of capabilities to our clients and creating more meaningful career experiences for our employees, the integration has been very successful,” said Mr. Passman. “The rebrand is meaningful in that it signifies the next phase of global expansion for Lansons, and the benefits this integration will bring to clients.”
The closing of the acquisition represents the continued expansion of Lansons’ global strategic communications capabilities, building on its prominent role in leading international agency networks Public Relations Organisation (PROI) Worldwide and Global Communications Partners (GCP). Through these partnerships Lansons can execute global programs on behalf of its clients in more than two dozen markets across the Americas, EMEA, Asia and Australia.
Gordon Tempest-Hay, the former CEO of both Teneo in the UK and Blue Rubicon, is to join Lansons as CEO on 1st January 2022. He will become a significant shareholder in the firm from April 2022. Lansons Co-founder and current Chief Executive, Tony Langham, will become Executive Chair focusing on client work and continuing to promote the business both at home and abroad. Fellow Co-founder, Clare Parsons, will move from Non-executive Chair to Non-executive Director.
Today, the UK findings of the SEREDA project, by the University of Birmingham with the University of Melbourne, and Bilkent and Uppsala Universities and NGO partners are published. This is an incredibly important though difficult subject of research, supported and part-funded by Lansons’ co-founders Clare Parsons and Tony Langham on behalf of Lansons.
We’ve attempted a smorgasbord of 30 second snippets, stories and explanations around sustainability. It’s not exhaustive - more Yoda’s little finger than Yoda. But it is, we hope, a semi-useful guide to the story, meaning and context around COP26 and what matters in the next few years.
