Grayling Expands Reach in Latin America with Launch of New Regional Office in Sao Paulo, Brazil

May 6, 2009

NEW YORK, May 6 /PRNewswire/ — Grayling, a leading integrated communications firm, today announced the opening of its new regional office in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The new office will further expand the Company’s reach in Latin America and reinforce its longstanding commitment to the region.

Elevating an already robust Latin American practice, the Sao Paulo office will help Grayling better serve both existing and future clients in the region by offering a complete range of domestic and international Investor Relations, Corporate Communications and Event services.

Grayling’s Brazil office will be headed by Ernest McCrary, Senior Consultant, and supported by New York Head of Grayling’s Latin American practice and Managing Director Lucia Domville.

Mr. McCrary has deep and extensive knowledge of the region and the U.S. capital markets. He served for almost a decade as the Bureau Chief of South America for the McGraw-Hill publications, including Business Week. He also worked as the Editor of Global Finance magazine in New York and more recently was the Editor & Publisher of Special Projects for Institutional Investor magazine.

Anne McBride, Chairman of Grayling’s Worldwide Investor Relations division, stated, “Given Grayling’s successful track record for servicing the communications needs of Latin American headquartered firms and organizations, the launch of our Sao Paulo office is a natural extension of our existing Latin American practice, and further demonstrates our long-term commitment to the region as well as to our clients that require an on-the-ground presence in Brazil.”

Ernest McCrary, Senior Consultant of Grayling Latin America said, “The equities and bond markets of Latin America in general and Brazil in particular are of special importance to both institutional and retail investors in the US and other countries,” said McCrary. “Almost 300 Latin ADRs are traded on exchanges in the US, and many are still not well known to investors outside the region. Our goal is help the best of these companies–and some listed just on local exchanges–communicate with international investors about the outstanding investment opportunities they offer.”

    The new Grayling office will be located at:
    Avenida Paulista,
    542 Penthouse, Andar 10
    01310-000, Sao Paulo, SP Brazil.
