Full service local communications agency The Counsellors has established an alliance with JER Porter Novelli, the Barbados-based public relations and marketing communications consultancy firm. JER is represented in a number of Caribbean countries, and the latest alliance creates a presence in both Nassau and Grand Bahama.

Ricardo Blackman, JER’s President and International Chairman said the expansion into The Bahamas is in keeping with his company’s mission to facilitate the cost-effective delivery of result-driven global and transcultural public relations and communications in the new business environment. He welcomed The Counsellors to the company’s Caribbean network.

President Joan Albury said, *”The Bahamas is one of the regional leaders in both tourism and financial services and The Counsellors has represented many of the major firms and institutions in these industries. We believe we are an ideal Bahamas gateway for firms and institutions seeking to access The Bahamas market”.*
