Citigate Dewe Rogerson is set to re-enter Scotland less than two years after it closed its offices in Edinburgh.

Ahead of the Scottish Independence Referendum, the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, the company has hired Colin Grant to manage the regional office, in a bid to offer corporate and PR services.

Jonathan Flint, managing director of the Corporate team at Citigate Dewe Rogerson, said: “We believe Citigate can play a major role, not only in enhancing the reputation of what we anticipate will be a growing client base there, but also in guiding foreign investors towards the great potential Scotland has to offer.

“Our new base will provide businesses in Scotland the opportunity to tap into the resources and experience of a big international PR firm yet still have access to a local face-to-face service. Although our new operation will be centred in Glasgow, we recognise that there are significant opportunities throughout Scotland and we hope to make our presence felt in all areas.”

The offices will this time be based in Glasgow, with the company eyes potential growth in the country, particularly its oil and gas, renewable energy, food and drink, tourism and technology sectors.

The withdrawal from Scotland saw an MBO rebrand the consultancy as Mullin & Magowan, with partners John Mullin and Conor Magowan both retaining their clients.
