Dominique Reber will serve as President of the FIPRA Network Advisory Board, supported by two Vice-Presidents: Laura Batchelor and Abdul Waheed Patel.
“The success of our network stems from a rare combination of a deep understanding of our clients’ long-term global objectives and a singular ability to deliver on projects deploying time-tested, impactful local approaches,” said Dominique Reber, President of the newly-established Advisory Board.
Vice-President Laura Batchelor underlined the FIPRA Network’s unique political, policy, and regulatory expertise on every continent. “With this agile setup for the Network, we are responding to market needs by offering clients not only thematic but also geographical know-how. This nuanced approach is all the more important in the wake of Covid19,” she said.
“The best public affairs advice is tailor made,” Vice-President Abdul Waheed Patel commented. “Our clients have recognized that their global objectives can only be achieved effectively and efficiently if local circumstances are understood and respected, combined with adhering to and upholding the highest ethical and quality standards. The FIPRA Network exemplifies this approach.”
