(NEW YORK) Sonya Auvray's Wetherly Group is partnering with Saturday Group's RMO, a London-based public relations company that represents brands like Erdem, Giles, and Harvey Nichols. The PR outfit was founded by Olivier Bourgis and Mesh Chibber, who still run the company. RMO's fashion and luxury clients will merge with Wetherly Group's roster of jewelry and denim clients like H.Stern, Gilan, and Hudson. "We have been actively looking for the right U.S. partner for RMO, and Wetherly impressed us with their level of service, strategic view of communication and expertise in the jewellry and denim sectors," said Bourgis and Chibber in a statement on RMO's website.
Each company will gain further access to new markets internationally in Europe and North America; RMO has offices in London and Paris and Wetherly has offices in New York and Los Angeles. "Our partnership results in a fully integrated global offering that will greatly benefit clients and improve our capabilities," said Auvray in a release. The two companies will now operate under the new title of RMO Wetherly.
