This is the first expansion of High Lantern Group outside the United States where it currently has offices in New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Philadelphia, PA, and Asheville, NC. It will bolster the firm's existing connections to European-based corporations, international organizations, trade associations, and influencers, and promote accelerated outreach and collaboration with new partners. The new Geneva office will also serve as a springboard to meet the needs of clients based in other key hubs across Europe and Asia, who can benefit from High Lantern Group's expertise in public affairs, communications, and reputation as powerful drivers of business development, corporate value enhancement and stakeholder relationships.
"Based on my experience in the international pharmaceutical industry, working to create synergies across public and private sectors, I recognized that High Lantern Group brings a unique approach to success in an ever-changing business landscape," said Ottiglio, who has held leadership roles at international health organizations for more than a decade. Previously he served as the Director of Public Affairs, Communications & Global Health Policy at the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and prior to that worked in governmental institutions and private firms. "Operating out of a key world public affairs hub, High Lantern Group will take clients on a journey through the lifecycle of ideas and initiatives, from early-stage strategy, to engagement and implementation."
