FCR passes 25 year milestone

FCR, one of Australia’s oldest financial public relations agencies has hit its quarter century.  

The announcement:

Financial & Corporate Relations (FCR) celebrates its milestone 25th anniversary this week.

The firm has delivered strategic counsel to hundreds of clients across the corporate and financial services sectors over the past two and half decades, helping them to manage their corporate profile and reputation, attract and maintain investor support, complete transactions, raise capital and manage crises.

Managing director and founder of FCR, Anthony Tregoning said, “We have enjoyed a wonderful twenty-five years and thank all our clients – present and previous – for their support, as well as the FCR team who are the backbone of our company. We are proud that we have managed to overcome several major market downturns and continued to attract new clients who value our service,” he said.

Mr Tregoning drew a parallel with the corporate scene 25 years ago:

“It has been a period of immense change in Australian corporate life. In 1985, each state had its own stock exchange and the Sydney Stock Exchange was among our early clients. ASIC was the ASC – also an FCR client. There was little, if any, talk of corporate governance and I can’t remember any annual reporting mentioning corporate social responsibility, sustainability or the environment.”

Mr Tregoning believes communication with investors, customers, bankers, Government and regulators is now more sophisticated and plays a critical role in a company’s success.

“It is the ability to communicate openly and persuasively that earns companies the trust of customers, the support of investors and bankers, and the commitment of employees. Having the right amount of communication and doing it in the right way is what differentiates companies in this online information age,” he said.

FCR has won numerous industry awards for its work in financial communication and issues management over the past 25 years.

“We have built our agency to be highly competitive, offering specialist skilled staff across a broad remit of services. Our corporate design and publishing division is performing exceptionally well and we continue to provide first-class service across the media relations, resources, financial services and investor communication areas. We are looking forward to the future with confidence,” Mr Tregoning said.

FCR is celebrating its silver anniversary with a cocktail party this evening with more than 170 guests, thanking clients, staff and journalists for their support over the years.
