Purpose-led communications agency Higginson Strategy has won a competitive pitch for Castleforge Partners’ communications brief. 

Higginson will provide extensive communications support for the London-based property fund management company as it invests in offices and living spaces across the UK and Europe. 

The brief includes crisis communications, media training, newsroom support and public affairs advice.  

Castleforge Partners was founded in 2010 by Brandon Hollihan and Michael Kovacs. Since its inception, it has invested approximately £1 billion of asset value throughout the UK and Europe. 

Higginson Strategy was founded in 2017 by former lobby journalists John and Clodagh Higginson. 

Higginson Strategy Founder John Higginson said: “We are extremely excited to be working with Castleforge Partners to support their communications strategy as they look to extend their portfolio and invest in living and working spaces fit for the future. The pandemic has been challenging for everyone and will continue to be so. But I am massively proud of my team across both offices who have continued to support our existing clients, support each other and win new clients."

“There are still huge dark clouds on the horizon but by adapting we are best able to turn challenges into opportunities for our clients. Communicating well has never been so important.”

Castleforge Partners Co-Founder Brandon Hollihan said: “It’s fantastic to be working with Higginson at such a pivotal time for Castleforge Partners. We were impressed by the Higginson team’s comprehensive service from the outset and are looking forward to working closely with them moving forwards.”
