Golin partners with Malaysia’s Rantau for Kuala Lumpur office

Golin has joined forces with independent Malaysian PR agency Rantau to launch an office in Kuala Lumpur.

The Interpublic agency’s new offering will be called Rantau Golin and adds to its existing Southeast Asia network and its bases in Singapore and Jakarta.

Jon Hughes, Golin’s co-CEO, said: “In order to be progressive for our clients, we must not only push our creative boundaries but also expand our global presence in key markets with abounding opportunities.

“Together with our offices in Singapore and Jakarta, the new office in Malaysia will enable us to build a cohesive service network and further bolster our capabilities in Southeast Asia so that we may create real impact for our clients.”

Rantau Golin will work with clients across Malaysia and the wider Southeast Asia region and be headed up by Rantau’s founder Janitha Sukumaran and its CEO Gogulan Dorairajoo.

Dorairajoo said: “I’m extremely excited about this partnership especially because we share and strongly cherish Golin’s position in the marketplace to reclaim public relations, redefine it and move our industry forward.

“I am confident that this partnership will not only allow us to provide clarity on our offerings for clients, but also assist Golin in their goal to serve a profoundly diverse global market. With Rantau Golin, our office will truly reflect the city and community that we’re based in. As communicators, we need that common denominator to earn attention for our clients’ brands.”

Founded in 1992, Rantau’s clients include Pfizer, Philips and Unilever, along with businesses from the property finance, education and sports sectors.
