Stanton is a full-service communications agency with a presence in New York, California and Toronto. Over the past two decades, Stanton has worked with a wide variety of firms in financial services, including private equity, private credit and asset management, helping clients raise their profiles, build their reputations, and grow their businesses.

JPES and Stanton recently hosted a successful joint event, Building Global Financial Brands in a Volatile Media Environment, at The Lambs Club in New York City, providing insights and advice on the nuances between profile raising in the US and international markets.

Earlier this month, Stanton also announced it had been ranked as a Top 10 PR firm for financial services in the US by O’Dwyer’s Public Relations News for the fourth consecutive year.

The news follows the appointment by JPES in 2022 of Niels Andersen, who joined as a senior US consultant to expand the firm’s overseas business development and strategy team, having held a variety of senior roles in the investment industry over the last 30 years.

Commenting on the news, Miles Donohoe, Managing Director of JPES Partners, said: “Since we were established 15 years ago, JPES Partners has implemented global communications strategies for its clients across five continents. As the needs of our clients continue to evolve, this new partnership enables us to offer truly end-to-end international support to our clients seeking to strategically raise their profile in North America”.

Charlyn Lusk, Managing Director at Stanton, added: “We are strong believers that independent firms are best positioned to serve clients and, in an era of corporate consolidation, partnerships like this between independent leaders deliver outsize value to clients. Our shared financial services domain expertise, content focus and vision of client service will ensure a seamless experience for JPES’ global clients”.
