Following a competitive pitch, Grayling has been selected as the new GCC communications agency for Rasasi, the region’s leading perfume house, to develop and execute a strategic and integrated public relations and social media programme.
Boasting a strong presence across the GCC with offices in Qatar, Oman and the UAE, Grayling is set to play an important role in Rasasi’s future communications success. The team will work closely with Rasasi to provide strategic counsel for PR and social in both corporate and consumer capacities, operate press office activities and manage social media to support Rasasi in achieving its desired positioning in key markets.
“As an agency that has been in the GCC for 30 years, we are excited to work with Rasasi, a brand with such a rich legacy in the region. We look forward to building their brand even further as they continue to grow and gain momentum across the markets,” commented Jonathan Shillington, Managing Director, Grayling.
