Stober, Poltavets & Associates (SP&A) is a Swedish consultancy with extensive expertise in designing and managing strategic financial, political and public affairs campaigns in several CIS countries, Turkey and the South Caucasus. With over a decade of working on international campaigns, we are well equipped to deliver quality results with the long-term impact that clients are looking for.
The SP&A team was formed in 2010 in Ukraine, primarily to help European clients requiring crisis communication and government relations services. We began working with the banking and financial services industries, but our practice soon expanded to encompass technology, IT, construction, and energy. Our clients are multinationals that often operate in a number of countries across the region.
Unlike tied or wholly-owned PR networks, we build our account teams fully on merit. We treat each client as a unique relationship and invest the time to build a team designed for the purpose and for the long run. This, in turn, boosts our own sector expertise. Our team members have a broad background, ranging from politics and media to diplomacy and science. We believe that, only by working with a senior team with the right professional mix, can we deliver a service that matches our clients’ expectations of professionalism and effectiveness.
We provide services in government relations, strategic communications, and marketing & events, coupled with sector expertise in banking & financial services, IT & technology, construction & manufacturing, and media & marketing.
SP&A’s team has grown to the point that we now have a permanent presence in Ukraine, Turkey and Georgia, with associates in Russia, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
