Jeremy Kirk and Antonino Blancato launch KirkBlancato Communications

Jeremy Kirk and Antonino Blancato have launched KirkBlancato Communications, a new financial and professional services public relations agency.

The announcement:

Australia’s financial and professional services public relations industry is set to become more competitive with the launch of KirkBlancato Communications by well-established practitioners Jeremy Kirk and Antonino Blancato.

Kirk was formerly the general manager of Sydney-based financial services and corporate communication consultancy FCR, while Blancato was director of media at FCR for more than a decade.

The two KirkBlancato founders can draw on more than four decades of experience in public relations, journalism and corporate affairs to consistently deliver measurable benefits for their clients.

Over this time, they have had long-term professional relationships with some of the biggest asset managers and significant other financial, professional services and corporate names, as well as disruptive start-ups.

Kirk said the pair formed KirkBlancato because they wanted to build something meaningful that was defined by the quality of its work and designed to meet client needs on every level without any trade-offs.

“At KirkBlancato we are building a communications consultancy that is known for its uncompromising focus on client outcomes and for the way it powerfully harnesses deep experience and industry knowledge.

“We are a consultancy that knows what it takes to make clients succeed and are committed to fearlessly providing the highest quality professional advice, content and support that wins in the communications marketplace,” he said.

Blancato added: “We believe experience is everything and in fronting up. That is why every client account will be led by a KirkBlancato director on a day-to-day basis.

“We could have come up with a generic agency name. However, we wanted to put our names on the door of this new consultancy because we believe in transparency and accountability.

“It is our reputations on the line and that is the way we think it should be. If we help our clients win, we win and we have the confidence that we will continue to win for our clients for a long time.

“Long term relationships matter to us and KirkBlancato is here for the long run,” he said.
